This is it… I’ve Found my New Job #UmNo

This is it! I’m going to drop everything and relocate my entire family for a part time job. But hey, it’s “highly paid” so worth it, yes? The answer is no…

I get stuff like this all the time. Only this time, I decided to Google the company’s name and, big surprise, a ton of other folks out there got the same email. Their actual website does show this job and another one, which is amusing, since it’s clearly a scam.

Anyone else get this gem today?

    I got almost the exact same email in my inbox yesterday! The reply to address was different, and it came from a different hotmail address, but it had the same company and signature! I think mine offered a “remunerative position,” though. If the different names and email addresses weren’t enough to send up my red flags, the word “remunerative” did. Um, when’s the last time you heard someone use most SAT words anyway? If you want to say lucrative or profitable, go ahead and say it. Remunerative? Really?
