Scam Warning - SpellJobs.com
SummaryAlthough this is a byproduct of another investigation it is worth noting this issue as soon as possible. A party who acquired personal data without consent claim to have bought this personal data from SpellJobs.com.
InvestigationThis is not apparently related to a legal entity anywhere - the WHOIS information also leads to a non-existent entity. The subject of the initial investigation passed the contact details of someone at SpellJobs.com who represents himself as "David Hilton". As you can see from the screenshot of the response the persons English seems to be slightly unusual.

The website itself appears to initially offer similar services to most but appears very basic in design - almost like it's been thrown together. A number of links don't work, the contact us page just throws an error (or perhaps veils further data capture for spamming?). It appears that anyone can search the list of candidates within the Spelljobs.com database.

The candidate data appears to be contrived in most cases.
Reason For ConcernDue to the type of information collected in this very specific instance and having analysed copies of the data received from the SAR to the original investigation the personal data has been acquired from a jobs board here in the EU - specifically Jobsite.co.uk. No consent was ever given for this type of data re-use & transfer and this is a breach of the original jobs boards T's and C's for recruitment agency activity.
There is simply no way that this website could be deemed legitimate. The author of this post is attempting to create a TrustPilot review for SpellJobs.com which serves as a warning to others.
