There are a few red flags in this message, let's see if I spot them all. First, numerous misspellings. Second, ALL I WOULD HAVE TO DO IS SIT AROUND COLLECTING MONEY AND SENDING IT ON FOR A CUT!? SWEET! Schyeah, right. Third, the company name is not listed at all. Fourth, it came from a gmail account.

Uh, fifth: they refer to the job as a "scheme." Sounds like a job working for the GOP: just take these checks from white supremacist groups, secessionists and aerial wolf hunters, and pass them up the pyramid...

I say: apply now!

They sound like a really advanced company. They want your contact infomation. From that, it will be processed for datamation and then infomoney. Sweet.

I like that the job is vacant. Vacant. Nice way of putting it.

What's the incentive to pass the money on? Why not just keep it?

Chuckles said...

The incentive probably involves another "i" word: indictment.
