Email Scam – Nothing to do with!

Posted on July 14th, 2010 by Jennifer Frankel

Over the past week there has been a new wave of email scams who are targeting internet users all around the world to part with their personal and financial details. The scam email appears to come from the hiring manage of the International Student Exchange Center – telling them about an excellent new area representative job and if you are interested you should apply with your personal details and CV.

We have been contacted by thousands of users who are asking us if we are anything to do with this, so we wanted to set the record straight that we have no involvement with this and want to warn users about the dangers of scams like this.

If you have received one of these emails – it is a SCAM – and it is not from and we have no association with this.

You should delete the email and certainly do not respond to it. It has also been reported to the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C), and the Bureau of Justice Assistance.

For more information about this please see this article which fully explains the scam in greater details

    My name is Jason Tyler, and from now on you can call me “Jay”.

    I am writing to inform you that we have received and reviewed your profile,

    you are qualified for the position of Area Representative, commencing July 2010

    on the terms set forth in the enclosed job description. I want to express my appreciation of

    your interest in this position, and I would like to do the best I can in order for our cooperation

    to be a win for you and my organization.

    I would like to apologize for not being able to contact you earlier, but we have been waiting

    for a final confirmation from our charity sponsors, who are responsible for funding this project.

    First of all, let me commend you on your interest, and how rewarding this program is to you

    and our students. We are very pleased that you have found interest in this position.

    This letter will give you all the necessary information concerning this position and will answer

    any immediate questions. Just wanted to let you know in advance that you do NOT have to pay for the enrolment or

    application. You do not have to pay for ANYTHING at all.

    Let me explain you who we are and what we do. “Excellent Program Student Centre” was founded in 2004

    as an international non-profit organization. Since the moment of foundation, we have put a lot of effort in

    various innovative programs, which were aimed at developing leadership and diplomacy skills in students

    from developing democratic countries. Four years after EPStudent was founded, in 2008, the annual budget of our

    organization grew up to 15 million dollars, and our team included more than 150 highly skilled experts throughout the world.

    With headquarters based in the United States of America, EPStudent also supports a wide network of offices located in 12 countries of

    Europe and Asia. The long-term goal of EPStudent initiatives is improving the quality level of education,

    supporting independent media and creating civil institutes and community centres.

    Our international activities are aimed at developing the students’ notion of tolerance based on respect,

    acceptance and understanding of the rich diversity of modern world cultures, personality expression forms,

    and ways of manifesting human individuality. Learning other cultures, communicating with students from

    other countries, practicing foreign languages – all of it helps to build the communicative competence

    of the future professionals, expand their horizons, and develop the concept of a human

    as a member of a modern society. The level of cognitive motivation and the social activity of

    students are growing, which is by all means both a reason for our pride, and a motive for further aspirations.

    EPStudent provides exchange programs for undergraduate and graduate students as well as

    the distribution of training materials and financial aid. Our exchange program extends to

    European, Asian and African countries. EPStudent programs focus on the development of foreign

    languages by placing students in the country where the language is natively spoken thus

    enabling students to experience global issues, understand different cultures and help

    young people adapt to their adult life building themselves qualities that are pursued by

    international employers and corporations. Due to our initiative, thousands of young people

    in the US and abroad obtained this unique possibility to learn about our world and experience

    different cultures and different ways of life enabling them to perceive, comprehend and deal with

    complex global and personal issues.

    Area Representative:

    distribution of financial aid and the support of our European and Asian associates.

    A semen fluid analysis evaluates certain characteristics of a male’s low semen and the sperm found in the low semen volume. It may be done while investigating a couple’s infertility or after a vasectomy to ensure that the procedure was successful. It is also used for testing the donors for semen fluid donation. These days it is possible to increase ejaculation fluid with completely safe ways including buying herbal pills from the many online shops. Semen liquid is the measurement of sperm concentration of sperms in your seminal liquid. A variety of factors are taken into consideration to help measure the semen count of a every man like the actual length of time between ejaculations, semen sample analysis, how the sample is kept when being transported to the lab. Sperm tablets is really fantastic safe herbal tested formula that without doubt will increase greatly the amount of sperm volume by up to 400 percent.
