Some one sent me an e-mail says that they saw my resume on CareerBuilder.com and they want me to work with them ! Just for text editing then after awhile they asked me to work as representative !!! They used my PayPal account to sell some Mexican Sterling Silver Tea Service !!! I felt that there is something not right going on !!! Also, I found out that they are asking me to Wire the money to their bank account in Russia !!! I called PayPal and refunded the money ...
Here is the last e-mail I got from them :
