Employment Advance Fee Scams Being Sent by Online Scammers

Online users are asked to beware of fake employment email like the one below. The fake employment emails are advance fee scams. The scammers send fake emails to their potential victims and ask them to send their personal information. Once the scammers have received their potential victims' personal information, they will ask them to send money in order to receive so-called information regarding their employers.

An advance-fee scam is a form of fraud and one of the most common types of confidence trick. The scam typically involves promising the victim a significant share of a large sum of money, in return for a small up-front payment, which the fraudster requires in order to obtain the large sum.

    Subject: Your Application For Employment

    June 13, 2019


    I wanted to personally thank you for your interest in DHL. We received your application and we think you would be a great addition to our airport ground crew team. We are currently expanding operations here at Los Angeles International Airport and think your desire to explore new opportunities and your solid work experience would equal success here with DHL. We would like to officially invite you to attend the New Hire Orientation on July 13th. And coincidently, you and I have the same birthday. I was born on January 12th as well, just many years before you.

    As you may already know, DHL Express is a division of Deutsche Post AG. Together Deutsche Post DHL is the world's largest logistics company operating around the world, particularly in sea and air mail. When combined with our subsidiaries, like DHL Global Forwarding and DHL Supply Chain we employee over 325,000 people in 220 countries and territories across Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe. We take the happiness and the welfare of this dedicated staff very seriously. Our management team is here to help you and our Human Resources Department is available for your assistance Monday - Friday during regular business hours. We have a complete paid training program that is designed to fast track your transition into our company while emphasizing safety and compliance with all FAA, TSA and other federal requirements. Starting pay, including while in training, is $23.80 per hour. After 90 days, you will qualify for health insurance and the other benefits offered by DHL. You will also undergo an “Initial Phase Evaluation” and qualify for an increase in pay which will be explained in more detail during your Orientation.

    The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) pursuant to Federal law (49 CFR 1544.229) requires that each prospective employee submit to a Criminal History Records Check (CHRC). You will also be required to provide fingerprints at Orientation. The cost for this is $99 and is reimbursed to you after successfully completing 30 days of continuous employment. This fee also covers all uniforms, testing materials and any other state or federal requirements that may be required pertinent to your specific jobs positions and/or duties. I have attached a list of disqualifying offenses that prohibits employment in all US airports. If your background restricts your employment here at DHL, we will refund your credit / debit card within 3 business days. Unfortunately, the Criminal History Records Check is mandatory regardless of previous background checks or security clearances. This is required by law.

    I have provided a link to the “IATA Ground Operations Manual”, and attached copies of the “Federal Air Cargo Security Requirements”, “CHRC Disqualifying Offenses”, “DHL Fact & Figures” and a “2018 W-4 IRS Tax Form”. Please take a moment to become familiar with those items. You DO NOT need to study or print those documents. We will provide you with physical copies at Orientation on July 13th.

    Once you have familiarized yourself with the literature please go to the DHL New Hire Form and fill out the New Hire Form. When asked, your ID number is 49241. Please fill out the form completely confirming your receipt of the supplementary paperwork and authorizing us to perform a Criminal History Background Check (CHRC). Upon submission of The New Hire Form, please pay the $99 Criminal History Record Check (CHRC) fee. Our secure payment processor accepts all major credit cards and PayPal. Once you have completed the payment, please print and save your receipt for future reimbursement. The CHRC background check takes between 2 – 4 weeks and immediately following TSA’s approval of your employment, we will call you to confirm your reservation at Orientation. Orientation will be held at:


    Once we determine the number of participants for the July 13th Orientation, I will contact you with the location and the schedule for the day. We ran out of space last month so we may change locations for the upcoming Orientation in Los Angeles.

    Orientation starts at 9 AM and usually ends around 4 PM. Please arrive 15 minutes early.

    Angelica, from everyone here at DHL I would like to personally welcome you to our family. I look forward to meeting you in person at Orientation. Please return the New Hire Form by June 15th to guarantee completion of your background check before Orientation. The CHRC must be approved by TSA for you to attend.

    Warmest Regards,

    Paul Wagner

    Recruitment Director, Los Angeles
