LT-Firenze Srl

I've been seeing a lot of hits on this blog as a result of searches for a site called
LT-Firenze Srl  (202 as of 5-17-11 to be exact)
I'm amazed that of the 202 visitors to this post only one person had the cajones to contact me.
...well I'm actually not that surprised, most people who read my posts and respond are the scammers and not the intended victims.

I can only assume it is for the site:
which appears to be a copy of the legitimate site

It appears these scammers are posting jobs for "contractors".
Someone did a search using the term "anyone work as a contractor for LT-Firenze Srl?"
My hunch that is a job scam site looks like its holding water......
Remember, if there are not any details the site cannot be reported to the web host -Yahoo.
I need data to do that.
Let me say this about the site.
The site is only about a month old:
   Whois Server:
   Referral URL:
   Name Server: YNS1.YAHOO.COM
   Name Server: YNS2.YAHOO.COM
   Status: clientTransferProhibited
   Updated Date: 19-apr-2011
   Creation Date: 13-apr-2011
   Expiration Date: 13-apr-2013

The scammer is operating from the IP:
X-Originating-IP: []
From: Daniele Olivera

The IP has quite a few references to online scams:,or.r_gc.r_pw.&fp=ecbf8a9c27052cf6

When doing a whois on the IP you get this information:
OrgAbuseHandle: KUROS-ARIN
OrgAbuseName:   Kurosaki, Ichigo
OrgAbusePhone:  +1-814-808-5483
OrgName:        HoneLive
OrgId:          HONEL
Address:        PO BOX 2134
City:           Secaucus
StateProv:      NJ
PostalCode:     07096
Its interesting to note that:
Ichigo Kurosaki is a fictional anime character:

The phone number's area code indicates 814
"Area code 814 is a Commonwealth of Pennsylvania telephone area code, which serves its northwestern and central regions, including the cities of Altoona, Bradford, DuBois, Erie, Meadville, Oil City, Johnstown, and Warren, as well as the boroughs of State College, Brockway and Rimersburg.
814 is one of the original area codes established in 1947 and is currently the only one of the original four area codes of Pennsylvania that still has its original boundaries. The region is largely rural and is the largest area code region in Pennsylvania"
The fact is that the area code for Secaucus, NJ is 201:

Sounds like a job for a Postal Inspector........

If you went to the site because of offers posted about jobs I can assure you its a scam.
The company offers no physical location and the site's main function is to get people to give their information to them.
If someone can fill me in on whats going on with the site email me at:

I wonder how many people have sent their personal information to this scammer?

Here is what he is sending his intended victims:
