Titan Escrow Group Inc. Scam 73 comments


Here is another scam you all should be aware of. I got an email this morning offering me a job and I decided to do a little research on it before I replied.
Turns out, many people have gotten this email and at least one person has been the victim of fraud. According to the person on this forum, she handed over copies of her identification and the scammers used it.
Now, there is a legit company named Titan Escrow Group Inc., but they have nothing to do with this scam as far as I can tell. They are located in California and the “job offer” is for a Canadian office, which doesn’t exist.

Before you answer any email for a job offer, make sure that you check the email address. This email was sent from BernettsyaGaobstejelum@hotmail.com. The fact that it was sent from a Hotmail account and not a company account is a dead giveaway. Someone named Olivia Wilson is also sending out these fake job offers.
Here’s what the original email looks like:


“Greetings from Titan Escrow Group Inc. !

    Thank you for this post. I got the same job offer. I look up the company and your warning was the first thing I saw.

    I received this exact same email (Dec. 3/12). I didn't notice it because it went straight to my "Junk" folder. (great job "Junk")
    Subject Line: "A great opportunity for a professional!‏"
    From: Janae Spinner (JanauhoveSpifenner@hotmail.com)
    They may have taken someone's real name and Hotmail address, then added a bunch of letters in the address to create a unique one. Lame.
    I did some research and got this page. Thanks 🙂

    I got similar e-mail saying they found my resume on a job site. Seemed odd to me that job site was three provinces from where I live. Also was able to track original message to somewhere in Asia.

    Hello Alina,

    Your message really help a lot of people from being victimized by these scammers.
    I did receive the same email yesterday coming from a certain Nana Tiffany .

    It's really good to do research first before responding to such email from unknown people.

    Thanks a lot for your advise.

  • Kathy Dowsett

    Ya, I got one too—-honestly these people!!!! I didn't fall for it either—always watch for different e-mail addresses—like the person above said—-it should come from a company—not hotmail and they person should identify themselves right off the bat!!!!

    Thank-You! for the Heads-Up! Received an e-mail 11:00am this morning 12-3-2012 Thought I finally found something half decent in pay range within my area of, Ottawa, Ontario. As our Government will deny, we're still trying to get out of recession, and I can't handle being stationary anymore. Research is definitely a given. Thanks again.

    Just got an email this morning as well, was considering responding back to it as I've been applying to jobs recently as well as the persons name/email seemed to be a bit strange but not off the charts. "Golda Fulmer." Did a quick google search of the man and of the company. Man was real, company was not. Thanks for saving me the hassle, guys.

  • cazizarty

    Just got the same e-mail today. It really threw me for a loop because I actually work as a shipper/receiver inventory controller. Different e-mail address though still a hotmail account, and they offer was for $2800 a month for 20 hours a week

    Hi! I just read the same email. It is really good to check first companies' profile especially if you did not submit application to them. I just wonder how and where they got my email address cause I don't usually give it unless needed.

    Thanks for posting comments like this.

    Got the same thing this morning too from a Brittney Ngo…thank goodness i did a search and landed here before submitting my information.

  • William Banks

    Yep, I got this email this morning, and I thought, "Great! now I can ditch this crappy call centre job and get rolling!" Until I looked the company up and found out it's not even Canadian.

    Make sure you do your research and you'll be fine!

    Alina,

    Thanks for your post. I just received the same e-mail this morning, but from a different hotmail e-mail address. Luhozfo Waddle. What a terrible name!

    Good point to check the sender's e-mail address. "Official" company e-mails coming from hotmail is either unprofessional, or more likely a scam.

    Play safe out there!
