Since my last post on scams, I have been reportedly getting emails from our H1BWiki users who have reported some scams they have experienced. The scams were either through a phone call or an email. I would like to get to your attention another common scam which has been common these days, reported by one of our H1BWiki user.

If you haven’t read my earlier post on scams, check the post on Scam – Threatening Phone Calls from 911/USCIS.

SCAM – XOOM TRANSACTION UNPAID

Undisclosed set of recipients are sent email as “Xoom Customer Service” with the subject “Your Money Transfer Transaction X012345678901 Unpaid-Verify Now‏”

The email looks like:

xoom_scam

What Happens?

  • A Xoom user would click on the link https://www.xoom.com/review-securty-code-update-xoom.
  • The link is actually being redirected to a third party site, where in the page exactly looks like xoom home page.
  • Here, you will be asked to enter Email Address, Xoom Password and Your Email Password.
  • This is how you would be tracked down and your Xoom passwords, Email Passwords would be retrieved.

    This is to be informed to every body who wants to move abroad through employment to Canada or USA. Do not use CANADA VISA INC, this is fake/fraud agency. The founder name is Ali Khan. He uses ICICI Bank Ltd., Mehdipatnam Bus Stop, Hyderabad, Mehdipatnam Branch, India. with the named of Syaikh Farukh, a/c 02450152 1811. Everything said in canadavisainc.com are totaly different and not true. He chasing for the payments only but has done nothing, he always talks as seems as a good moslem that’s really embarrassing the moslems. One of my friend is the victim of his dirty jobs and we have the proof of it. So be careful with this agency and we hope there is no more victim.
