This one is pretty cool and I don't think I've seen a report about it. It's basically a variation of the Carl Zeiss scam, but it tries harder than your average scam and the offer is admirably unattractive.

I received the same one today. Well, almost the same... Apr 30

Mine, however, is for a base pay of $170 hourly. Lucky me! LOL!!!

I am searching for contact information where I can report this. I think that the real Kinnevik probably has someone dealing with such scams.

Hi,
Also received this today, but was offered 80$. Nowadays scammers bother to build up a website and provide Scandinavian names to make it sound more serious.

That's the spelling I got. The company in Sweden is Kinnevik (with I rather than L),
