I recently worked an incident where a an executive’s persona was impersonated through the use of gmail account to respond to service offerings posted on Craigslist for graphic artists offering up interviews for corporate positions. Once the person who posted the service offering got the e-mail from the executive, the scammer tried to move the interview process to Telegram. This is not much different from the Job Groups people create for metro areas on Facebook and scammers try to move the interview to Google Hangouts for jobs that don’t exist. In the case of Telegram, we were provided the User ID of Telegram @interviewsessions that was associated with the person Nicolas Buquier (Pizza Hut Exec). I made abuse complaints to Google mail and Telegram with e-mail evidence of where the accounts were being used in a scam, but neither have taken any action to shut down the accounts. So, today, I decided to have some fun with scammers. Here is the log of my “interview”. I thought I was doing well from the BS I fed back, but I got tired of messing with them once they would not take my bait and review a link I provided. Clicking it would have identified their IP address or proxy service being used.
