I was just offered a job from there and was wondering if anyone has heard of them and if they were legit. I looked them up on the BBB and it says they have a satisfactory rating. Here was the ad they placed and the e-mail description I got from them. I would really appreciate any thoughts!!!

The whole part about cashing things at my bank and wiring definitely se off some bells, and then topping it off with making 650 in 4-5 hours really sealed it. It didn't say anything about that stuff when I applied.

After I posted, I went back to their website to see if that person really worked there. Well, she does but the email addys are slightly different. I'm 99% sure that whoever posted that ad is pretending to be the company. I emailed the woman they are claiming to be and let her know.

I thougt it was very odd to 1) have gotten the job so quickly (I sent it yesterday and heard back today) and 2) gotten it without even an interview. I just hope that others don't fall for it.
