As I always have stated in previous posts about employment scams, no huge company is going to spam out an employment offer. This one again sent out to “undisclosed-recipients”. You think they would have a huge list of potential employees? Its a scam, they need a money mule to launder their dirty money.

    Yes, I just received this email. I did respond to find out what it was about. Then I googled the address in UK that they had noted. I will from now on delete this email. You respond when you are looking for a job, which is what I am doing.
    Thanks,

    Any time someone emails and asks for all your home info, this is a phishing scam (( DO NOT REPLY )).
    Mark it as a phishing scam. Lots of people trying to rip others off.
    Be careful.

    Yea, I got the same email and I knew it was a scam but I responded just to make them waste some time and a stamp as I was informed today that I have a $48,000 check on its way to me. The check will never see my bank and they will never get a penny from me.
