This guy posted an ad on Craigslist looking for an office assistant/personal assistant. I sent him an email with my resume attached and he replied the next day. The email was really long so I didn\'t even think of this as being a scam at first. However, he asked for my address, name, education, and age; all of which were already in the resume that I sent him. I began to get a little suspicious. In the next email, he told me that I had the job without giving me an interview! Red flags went off and I also noticed that with each email, his grammar got progressively worse. I Googled parts of his email and it turns out that this is a money mule scam. This guy and his associates have scammed hundreds of people into giving them money and the people end up having to pay their bank back and being investigated by the police! He sent me a check (which of course was fraudulent) even after I told him that I would not be able to work for him. I am returning it tomorrow morning!
