Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy -- meditate on these things.
I got an email last night from someone who was looking up contact information for one of my customers: Piexx Company. She was wondering if someone was trying to scam her. The way the scam works is that someone says they are a hiring agency for some company and posts a job offer for a data entry position where you can work at home, and they interview and you get the job. Then they say, "oh, forgot to mention, you need to buy some software in order to be able to connect with the company's database, etc." You post the payment (via the required Western Union of course) and then they disappear, and since they were using a free email account, you can't track them down. email@example.com is one of the current perpetrator's, but I assume that account will be gone shortly, and they'll appear under another name.
Apparently, Piexx gets about four or five requests a day asking if this is for real. And that is just one company, so I assume there are tons of companies being used like this.
