Job Scam Emails: (Infosys JOB)

 Today I want to share a post on job scams via email. Earlier, I posted on nigerian scams or online frauds. 

Let see the scam:

content of the email:

Infosys Recruitment 2015

Kindly send your update Curriculum Vitae/Resume for job description.

James Carrick
Hr Executive

I checked the send address details:

from: Infosys <>

bcc: ******
date: 12 January 2015 at 05:03
subject: Infosys
Signed by:
- Important mainly because of the people in the conversation.

It looks suspicious to me, because of the send address and the mail formats. So I replied them to look forward any attachments. I received a word doc. Scanned the word doc with officemalscanner for any malicious codes. But, nothing found. Still, I viewed that doc in controlled environment.

Content of the doc:

They also mentioned that salary range is from Rs.98,981.00/- Rs.400982/-. For the interview process, they asked as to pay 26000/-. I am very sure about that no IT company will ask these kind of silly stuffs.

All we need small amount of seriousness and little awareness about the cyber security threats.
Please share this information with your friends and family and stay away from these kinds of scams.
