Beware Of A Fake Billing Support Job Offer For Nidec Corporation
Once again, scammers are preying on job seekers attempting to lure them into yet another money mule/fake check job scam!
This time someone using the name Isaac Morgan using the email address, IsaacMorgan@geologist.com, is claiming to be recruiting for Billing Support positions in the US, on behalf of a company called Nidec Corporation located in Minami-ku, Kyoto, Kyoto Prefecture, Japan. Below is a screenshot of an excerpt of the brochure the “recruiter” is sending as an attachment with the job offer.
Nidec is actually a global corporation, with many facilities already located in the US, so why would a company of this stature need to hire people and PAY them $76,000 a year to work at home in the US using their own personal bank account to cash checks from Nidec “customers” and send the CASH to their accounting dept?
The answer is..THEY DON’T!
Nidec would never allow an employee to accept checks from their customers, made out to the employee for company transactions period! In fact NO legitimate company or corporation would ever do this! There are government regulations, guidelines and LAWS that corporations must follow!
The first email our reader received from this Isaac Morgan person was a bit odd to say the least..and was definitely suspicious to our reader since it wasn’t even addressed to them.

I received your resume for an administrative assistant position on Career builders. You did not provide any contact info other than email on your resume.
Of course our reader had no clue what administrative assistant position he was referring to, and just assumed the email was sent in error and therefore responded questioning this. But several weeks later our reader received this email from Isaac Morgan:

Be careful! This job is NOT a legitimate offer from Nidec Corporation!
Scammers has stolen the legitimate companies credentials in order to scam job seekers out of their money! They send “employees” fake checks to cash and wire the cash overseas.

What To Do If You Are A Victim
If you have fell victim to an employment scam like this, you need to contact your bank immediately and close your account IF you have provided your account information to the scammers. Next file a police report with your local authorities and then file a complaint with the FBI’s internet crime center at http://www.ic3.gov/
If you provided your personal information like your social security # birthdate etc , you need to contact the 3 credit bureaus- TransUnion, Equifax and Experian, and place a fraud alert on your report. These criminals can steal your identity, sell your personal details on the dark web who may try and obtain credit in your name. Doing this will alert you for at least 90 days about any suspicious activity.
In the hands of a thief, just your name, address, Social Security number or date of birth, can be used over and over months- even years down the road to:
Open new lines of credit
Seek medical attention
Drain savings and retirement accounts
Provide an alias when arrested
Get a job or file false tax returns
Get Payday Loans in your name
Obtain service agreements for cellular service or utilities
Obtain Government Documents such as a drivers license or passport
That’s why I highly recommend you get some sort of ongoing identity theft protection such as the services offered through companies like LifeLock-Visit Their Website Here or Identity Force-visit their website here!
