    I forgot to add, these people have been trying to hook people with fake job adverts for Santos Limited from Australia. There are no jobs and these people just want your bank details and / or you to deposit stolen or fake checks and send them the money – classic `money mule’ scam.

    Don’t fall for it! Which international company uses Yahoo or email addresses for their top people? With spelling mistakes and bad grammar? If you see these adverts, inform the newspaper or website posting them as they will be unaware it is a scam – stay safe online!

    Google the email address the scammers are using and see the truth on other scam alert websites

    the scam people using the email address have also used other email addresses in the past including,,,, and

    they are busy scammers!
