I found an ad in my local newspaper about a payroll/pay receiver job. It only had comapny name and email address. The email address was firstname.lastname@example.org The company name was Total Fabrics Int. I sent them an email inquiring about the job. I received an email back stating to fill out an application. the application was part of the email text. It asked for my name address and telephone number. I filled this out and sent it back, and within 10 minutes I received an email saying I was hired. They said they would notify me of a tracking number for a check and I would have to go to the bank and cash it and take 10% of it and wire them the rest. i emailed them back and told them that I thought they were a fraud and they replied with “We are not a scam! That’s ridiculous!” The only reason I thought it wasnt a scam was because I found the classified ad in my local newspaper. What do you think?
