In the latest scam.....after applying for a job involving one of my many "fake teacher" characters, in this case, a female, I got this email back in a few seconds. (See below).
The bottom line for any and all recruiters is this: DO NOT TRUST THEM. If you see a free mail account such as Yahoo, Hotmail or Gmail, it is most likely FRAUD. If recruiters are not associated with at least a Web site that can be checked and tracked, forget it, and even then, be skeptical.
Look at the signature and the agency acronym out of proper order on the bottom of the page. It should be FDIC and NOT FIDC. Using trace route tools, this email came out of North Korea. I sent them a fake photo of an unknown individual, and several fake documents for a job they posted. They most likely figured they could pull a double whammy on me and steal my ID and try and sucker me on some FDIC scam as well. Its one example of many.

Property is considered abandoned if there has been no activity on it for more than three years, according to NAUPA. Such money is turned over to the state of your last known address, and the state holds the money in its coffers until you or your heirs claim it. There is no time limit to claim most abandoned property. In fact, years from now, your great-great grandchildren could claim it.
