Hi- I received the email below today. It sounds familiar, like I heard this setup in a news story about "job offer" scams or something, (and plus the spelling/syntax *sucks,* which was actually my first clue), but I am having problems finding info online about this scam. Does this look like the usual scam? And if so, who can/should I forward this email to? I am a resident of the state of NY. And yes, I do actually have my resume listed on the http://www.4entertainmentjobs.com
website mentioned, so I would like to let them know about it also, of course.
I haven't done anything yet, this site had some awesome advice when my friend (almost) got taken by the Nigerian check/car auction scam so I am waiting to hear what y'all have to say on this first! Thanks!!
