What is the purpose of this scam?
I'm job-hunting and registered on multiple sites. Lately, I've been getting "job offers" not related to those sites. They all follow the same pattern and I'm sure they're all bogus - if it's too good to be true, it probably is. Here's a sample: Good Day, I want to impart about new position we have in advertising sphere. Letter of the opening: Supply chain manager. Division: Supply. Placement: All over the USA. Paycheck: $75,000. Duties: 1. Ensure proper stock records and control on all products in the warehouses. 2. Coordinate and facilitate the demand review meetings. 3. Control necessary documents. 4. Analyse the cost effective way of efficient blending planning and operation. 5. Progress the circuit of enterprise’s work. 6. Actively participates in company functions. Matter : - US resident - Holder of the bachelor degree - 5+ years work experience - Proficient in Microsoft Office Word, EXCEL, and Outlook - Good Sense of Business - Strong interpersonal skills For more information, please reply with your resume. Thank you for notice. The grammar, while not perfect, is a bit better than most. This one, at least, doesn't follow the usual scam of accepting and redirecting packages. I delete them and block the sender but I'm curious about what the senders hope to get from me. Any ideas?

Could be the person is using stolen credit card numbers. Using your name, address, etc. The items are shipped to you, and you would ship them to other addresses. The police would show up on your door in about 3 weeks. More likely is just a scam to try to get money upfront though.

I'm honestly not sure. A lot of jobs pay directly into your bank though so it's a way to get your bank details and mess about with your money. This is why they haven't put a location and put them as "all over the USA."

If you respond, after a couple emails back and forth they'll tell you that you need to send them money, probably thru something like Western Union, for required paperwork or training or something.
