Fake jobs: greece-career.com, il-career.com, mc-jobs.com and oae-career.com

Four new domains peddling fake jobs today, forming part of this very long running scam.

greece-career.com
il-career.com
mc-jobs.com
oae-career.com

The “jobs” offered are actually criminal activities such as money laundering. It may be that the email appears to come “from” you as well (the from address is trivially easy to fake, it doesn’t mean that your machine is infected with anything).

Domains were registered two days ago to “Alexey Kernel”, which is no doubt a fake name.

greece-career.com presumably targets Greek nationals, and il-career.com looks to be targeting Israelis. The other two are less clear, but our best guess is that mc-jobs.com might be targeting Macedonia (but the TLD is .mk) and oae-career.com might be the UAE and is just a typo. This continues the pattern of going after non-English speaking victims who might be fooled more easily by a scam email in their own language.
