My previous posts trying to help people not get ripped off by an expensive high cost telephone interview scam email hasn’t stopped the scumbags sending spam and profiting from the rip off. I’m upset that the powers that govern them haven’t done anything; nor has the telco providers or any responsible party (including jobsite and the other job agencies that are happy to sell their data to anyone willing to pay).
Today’s email differs slightly from the original spam:

In regards to our previous email inviting you for a job interview. We realised we had a problem with our telephone line. Fortunately the vacancy is still open, we are still happy to invite you to an interview.
You will have an interview with the department manager, Edie Wilson. The interview will last about 30 min.
Please bring three reference (If available), as well as a copy of your ID, e.g. Passport, Driving License to the interview.
Please contact me on 07064848368, in order to arrange an interview
We look forward to seeing you and we are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
As a reminder this is spam, the email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) is invalid and any replies won’t get anywhere.
The 0706 numbers (there are a whole bunch of them) will cost you 50p/min (or more) to call and will do nothing but allow this scum to profit from the innocent people calling it.
If you do mistakenly call the number please call your mobile / telephone provider ASAP and complain and ensure the call charges incurred are reversed.
If you get the email with a variation of the message / number please leave a comment to share the details and assist people in getting caught out by this scam.
Good look with the job hunting and may parasites like this named and shamed. I’ve previously posted this scam in different formats – http://www.webtrickery.com/?p=750
