Tip & How-To about Cell Phones

Offer Letters sent by SMS - SCAM | FAKE

Hello all who use FixYa for their daily questions and solutions to common problems and concerns.

I have become alarmed with the amount of questions I see regarding "Job Offer Letters" sent to cell phones and mobile devices thru SMS text messages.

These messages prompt users to go to a webpage (usually a link such as www.ifile.it/efjg9w6 ) to download their offer letter, stating that their resume was selected. A viable company would usually have a respectable "known" domain name associated with all client facing offers and would be using that, not third party anonymous file hosts.

When you download the offer letter, you will find your name is no where to be found on the document / PDF or JPG image. You will also find the document to be peppered with grammatical errors. Worst of all, you will find it telling you that you need to pay a cash deposit before the interview date. This is a big red flag and should send off alarm bells up and down your spine.

These fraudulent offers seem to be targeting people in the Middle East, Asia, India, etc...

I urge you to ignore these SMS messages and do NOT send money to a company you don't know. By all means, ask questions, call them, email them and be proactive before committing your money to any type of "too good to be true" offer. You can never be too safe, then sorry.

doesnt seem like many people use this website. it is well designed though. is there a place that shows how many users have visited in the past week or month?

Fixya for Android: Number of Visitors to this site weekly:

Hello. I think it depends on what people are looking to get answers for. Most people tend to ask one question and then not come back until they have time to do so.

I've been answering questions for about a month now.. I see a lot of new questions daily but I only look at one section of products people ask about..

There are sites that analyze traffic.. here's one with stats on Fixya.com:

Our frig. Leaks a small amount of water from inside about every 3 days

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Actually the leaking water is from the evaporator coil unit.... Under normal conditions,Self-defrost refrigerators usually dispose the water generated during the defrost cycle through a tube or channel that directs the water a pan (Known as Drip pan), commonly below the refrigerator unit....
The channel or tube is clogged and the water is leaking to the refrigerator unit, so you need to clear that contamination.... This is all you need to do....

Best of Luck,

Please do Rate the solution, if you feel that this helps you,

Hello there jonl98023.

Here's your geek-steer ...

You're classically describing a very common trouble. Common enough that Microsoft has published a KnowledgeBase (KB314060) article concerning it. Accompishing the actions detailed there should "FixYa" up.

Good luck, and please do post back ...
  • to let me (and interested others) know how things worked out,
  • to provide clarification or feedback,
  • if you have ANY further questions.
Today's the best day of my life ... and NOW you're part of it!
