MoneyMule ~ Extreme-groupinc.com

Excellent series of articles Brian.

Though careerbuilder.com does have alerts about these money mule jobs: http://www.careerbuilder.com/JobSeeker/Info/Fraud.aspx I do not believe that they are taking sufficient action to combat this epidemic. In my opinion, careerbuilder does not adequately vet employer applicant accounts. These criminals gain easy access to massive databases of resumes for targeting potential money mules. This activity has been going on for a long time.

For example, this same criminal operation that is listed here, was the subject of a report by a money mule on ripoffreport.com back in February 2009. That mule report lists how they recived a transfer of $9,300 taken from a company in TN., L S Starrett. The mule was then instructed to withdraw the cash and send it via Western Union to 3 recipients. Two in Chisinau, Moldova, and a third in Moscow, Russia.

Besides Scope Group Inc aka scope-group.cn, these criminals have dozens of active fake recruiting websites.

An audit of a few of their active IP addresses shows the following fraud domains:
