Job offer spam: vonateks.com

vonateks.com is a fraud
The following job offer was sent out as spam by an organized crime group. The domain vonateks.com was only created 3 days before the spam was sent. The purpose of this job offer is to trick people into helping move stolen money out of the country for the gang. The fake jobs site jobsfromabroad.com (which is a rip-off of jobpilot.de, a legitimate job site) was registered the same day as vonateks.com. The domain of another legitimate job site, jobsabroad.com was used in a fake sender address:
