I am unemployed and looking for work. I posted my resume on careerbuilder.com and heard from this company (see all emails below). Basically I found that their website (www.kerkseyconsult.com) was only 5 days old (verified by: http://www.whois.net/whois/kerkseyconsult.com) and all of the text from that website were stolen from: (www.sostechgroup.com).

I believe they are running the check/wire scam. See excerpt below form this link for example: (http://jobsearch.about.com/od/jobsearchscams/qt/reportascam.htm)

\"Jennifer is just one of the many job seekers who have written to tell me that they were the victim of a scam. She was told that she would receive $490 a week. Then she received another email saying that there was a mistake and the company had accidentally sent her 3,200 dollars. When she received the check she was supposed to wire the rest of the money to someone else. That\'s a typical attempt to get you to part with your money. The check from the company wouldn\'t have cleared, and she would have already wired the money to the third party.\"
