I applied for a receptionist job and was contacted pretty quickly by someone named Mike Leonard. He sent me a lengthy email about he was currently in Australia, and that he was looking for a personal assistant. His assistant would be required to shop and receive shipments. I applied for the position through craigslist. They are very hit or miss when looking for jobs because their seems to be a lot scammers on the site as well. Hope this is helpful to someone.
