I applied for jobs online and sent my resume. I received (2) e-mails in response. One of them was from James Adams who later sent me a fraudulent check for $4,800.00. The other was from Jennifer Woodard. Both posted accounting jobs and gave me instuctions to cash the checks at my bank, deduct 10% and send the rest through western union. Well, today I got a cashiers check from James Paul for $5,830.00. I've never heard of nor talked to this guy. The UPS envelope said it was from Coca-Cola bottling company. I called the bank (M & T) out of NY to see if it was legit. It wasn't. The scary part is I have no idea who got my address to send this.

Glad to hear that you checked things out and were not taken by the scam.
