This one I found on the Fool board "Ask the Headhunter" (If you like this, don't rec me, go to the link and rec that link 'cause it is thanks to poster "Biojobs" that we have this info ;-) http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=18103793&recscode=2

Summary:

Nov. 4 — It was just the job lead Jim needed: a marketing manager position with Arthur Gallagher, a leading international insurance broker. And only days after Jim responded to the job posting on Monster.com, a human resources director sent along a promising e-mail. We're interested in you, the note said. The salary is negotiable, the clients big. In fact, the clients are so valuable and sensitive that you'll have to submit to a background check as part of the interview process. Eager for work, Jim complied — and sent off just about every key to his digital identity, including his age, height, weight, Social Security number, bank account numbers, even his mother's maiden name.

IT WAS ALL JUST an elaborate identity theft scam designed to prey on the most vulnerable potential victims — the increasing ranks of the unemployed.

j,

I think you'd find an appreciative audience at the "Financial Scams" board.

Have never heard of it before. I don't have the time now, but I definitely will check it out. If you think it will fit, then please, go ahead and post it there!
