Thumbs down scam

It is a check/money order cashing scam

Stay far away from anyone who wants to interview you over IM rather than on the phone

The very high pay per hour and bad grammar are big red flags. I agree with Mom27, this is just another scam.

I got something similar to this not too long ago in the actual mail complete with a check that asked that I cash the check and send them a money order for a certain amount and that I keep a portion as payment. I had my husband give it to one of his co-workers that's spouse is an FBI agent and they looked into it and it was a scam just as we thought.

I agree that this sounds like a scam. However I interviewed for one of my current positions over IM and have been rather happy with the job. It does not pay as much as I would like but more than most on here!
