BEWARE the "Norbert Adenauer GMBH Financial Assistant job offer" scam. After accessing my contact details through careerbuilder.com, I was approached with an "opportunity" to become a "financial assistant" for fake German company "Norbert Adenauer GMBH". The email directs the user to enter their details through a registration form on the site, or to email manager "Louisa Dittmar" with additional questions. After doing so, I received this response:
