I got a response Email that this position had been filled but there was another opening as a personal assistant, but since he was out of town, we could not meet for an interview. I would be receiving checks in the mail for my work etc etc. HE ASKED FOR ALL OF MY INFO over email (most of which were included in my cover letter...stupid me) and after googling I found that some people had faced jail time for bounced checks and lost thousands. And because the individual sending these is overseas or unable to be traced, authorities can\'t do squat about it.

Remember that anything involving sending/receiving packages and money through an \"over seas stranger\" anything involving western union, or someone \"unable to meet for an interview\" is a SCAM!!!
