Post subject:  Needed Virtual Assistant with Real Estate background

The latest work at home scam making the rounds on Craigs List:

This is a SCAM! When you reply for more info you'll get an email (see copy below) with a link in it sending you to one of "their" sites to sign up for a teleconference. When you go to sign up it says it's a "trial" and will ask you for your credit card info including the three digit number. The domain is only three weeks old and there is no information what so ever about this company in Seattle, Washington which is where the phone number originates from. They also will not return phone calls ( I left numerous messages) or answer emails (I also sent emails after not receiving a phone call back). BIG RED FLAGS! All they want is your credit card number. Just stay safe and pass this "scam" up.
