I had applied for a part time Caregiver position, and here is a job offer (scam offer) I received...
(This clown has basically hired me from just an emailed cover letter/resume to take care of his 140 pound, 5 ft 8 in SISTER. Who, (in their right mind) would hire a total stranger to come into their home and take care of a loved one, even offer them a place to LIVE without checking references, criminal background, meeting them face to face, or even talking to them over the phone. What an idiot!! I could be some whacked out freak, thief, serial killer...whatever.) By the way...why wouldn't she speak good English, with her last name being Lowe and she's from Philly? Northern accents aren't that hard to understand. These scammers kill me
