I received an email from A Harris at firstname.lastname@example.org he said he'd seen my CV on Totaljobs website. The email went on to say that he had a job offer for a Financial Support Agent.
He stated he worked for Employment Office recruitment agency. I checked online and there is a recruitment agency by that name, so I responded. As soon as I got the second email stating the job was with Digital Age Ltd, I also noted his email address had changed to email@example.com. I checked this out and found out it was a scam.
I then rang the number (01865 589102) as shown on the website for Employment Office Recruitment Agency (Address: Level 14, APEX Tower, High Street, New Malden, KT3 4DQ, Surrey, UK) at 5.00 am, amazingly this call to a UK number was diverted to a number in Australia where the call was answered by Jessika Woolford (email: firstname.lastname@example.org). I checked this out further and found another completely identical website but for Employment office recruitment in Australia (1300 366 573 â€” 265 Coronation Dr, Milton QLD 4064)
I contacted Totaljobs and they just hid behind "It's a phishing scam", but there was certain information in my CV that was used that could NOT have been gained by a phishing scam or from anywhere else. I have also contacted the ICO and reported it as a breach of Data Protection Act.
I have since then also received an email from email@example.com which used the information that was in my CV so these people are passing on/selling your email address.
This all matched what I had read on http://www.scamwarners.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=77475
