The Recruiter Network

A correspondent has asked me about the following recruitment offer. I've advised him that it's a money mule job of the sort discussed here (and pointed him to the forum). I don't know how useful this information will prove to be -- there's not much to go on -- but I'm posting it here for future reference, just in case. (Also useful if anyone searches based on this text.)

Dear Applicant,

I represent the The Recruiter Network, Sweden based company that provides
recruitment services globally. We work in partnership with our candidates
and clients to provide both with our expertise in every part of the
recruitment process, to delivery added value to our candidates and clients.

Our client, Swedish web-design studio "Rich Productions", is looking for managers
in the USA to create Rich Productions' subsidiaries. I have found you resume on
»www.monster.com/ and I suppose that this position could be
a good opportunity for you to get additional income.

Your mission in this project is to establish business tools (to register
a business entity, to set up business and merchant bank accounts), and,
basically, after that all you will have to do is to spend a couple of
hours a week to monitor sales level, incoming and outgoing payments, and
perform simple tasks from Rich Productions' manager.

Rich Productions will create a web-site (online store, Rich Productions' subsidiary)
that will sell their products. The operation of this web-site
impossible without a merchant account, that is why your mission of
establishing the listed above business tools is so important for the
project. Certainly, you will be reimbursed for all expenses.

If you already have a company, you can use it instead of registering a
new one, it will make the start up yet faster.

Your commission will be 5% from gross sales (you'll earn about 1500-2000$
a month). You will get this commission in any case regardless any fees
applied to business.

Your income will increase as the business progresses. And, as you can
see, everything is very simple and all partnership activities are
absolutely transparent.

Please e-mail me at alva.stahrberg@1stclassrecruitment.com, and I will
provide you with all the details. Even if you are not interested in this
position, let me know and I will contact you if we have any other, more
suitable for you, opportunity.

Excellent decision to post iDeceive See Profile.

More than you thought, sometimes all that is needed is a mere crumb of information. Not only is the mention of setting up an LLC /Corp and obtaining merchant services a primary clue, which ties it to this organized crime syndicate. I can confirm absolutely that it is the same criminals.

Several of the graphic images that have been used before are on here:

It belongs to the download themed group whose recruiting C&C repeatedly projects itself as being based in Sweden. They are also using the same address as a recently posted recruiting email for the known fraud Riddick-Design.

Riddick is a subset of a large group of let's pretend we are in Sweden fraud cyber-mule recruiting sites. Not only is the SCAM therecruiternetwork.org FRAUD hidden such that only those whose resumes are targeted can find it:

According to the source code of the main index page that are no more that a few text words on there. Everything is in a graphic non searchable format including the contact details:

Dear ,

Thank you for your reply, I'm glad that our offer is interesting for you and
try to explain what did this position entails and how everything works.

Our client is the Swedish company Red Line web studio which wants to enter
the american market now because almost all on-line business are located in
the USA. So we have to search managers in the USA to create their
subsidiaries. Below this manager is called Assistant Director. Theh
Assistant Director's mission in the project is to create business tools
(registering a business, setting up business and merchant bank accounts) and
it is for these services that he or she will be paid.

Red Line, Inc creates a web-site (online store or subsidiary another words)
which will sell their products. They want to sell small-size low-price
downloadable content advertizing through the banners. This way makes
possible to reach a good profit because of large volume of sales.

The work of this web-store is impossible without a company and that's why
Assistant Director's first step is the LLC or Sole Proprietorship
registration. If you don't have enough of funds to register the LLC we have
an opportunity to register the business for you using on-line incorporation
agency. In this case you don't spend your own money. If you already have a

You will never do any sales, advertising, presentation or something like
this. All promoting of the Web store will be done using on-line ADS
services. All expenses relating to ads placement will be on Red Line studio
at full. The specialists of marketing department of Brahe Design studio will
take care about reaching the stable profit of the store not less than
$30.000 each month. You will be paid 5% of this sum so it is guaranteed that
your income will be not less than $1500 monthly.

The position af Assistant Director doesn't require any special skills. You
should just be in touch with your personal manager and follow his/her
instructions. If you don't know how to do all this your personal manager
will explain you all actions step-by-step. You always can ask a question and
will be provided by the detailed instructions.

All work can be done on-line (Internet access is necessary requirement) so
you don't need to spent a lot of time. It is needed just 3-4 hours a week
and it is enough, so it is possible to combine
it with your direct work.

Please, take most seriously to this project and inform me about what do you
think about this offer as soon as you can and feel free for asking you
questions. I'm always glad to provide you with detailed information. If you
wish to join us please let me know and I will send you the Contractor

The recruitinlg letter's reference to "Our client is the Swedish company Red Line web studio" is an established ruse theme and so is the long term ruse of being based in Sweden.
