That is *not* the same link as in the email, that was the other give away, although it looks identical in every way it's not, but I'll not post the link here if that's OK.

I hadn't seen your post - my duplicate screen hadn't refreshed.

The real company receives hundreds of calls and emails about this on a daily basis, and it's been reported to the US authorities, but the bogus site is on a domain name registered in Krygystan, and there's not much they can do.

to the bogus site.

It's just fortuitous I'm looking for work at the moment FE, it might have been around for ages but not everyone knows about it and if you are looking for work it is easy to get sucked in if you are not vigilant.
