Check Fraud Scam

Scam alert.

$600-1,200 for 2.5-3.5 hours per week ?

Read and repeat: If it comes from the internet and it sounds to good to be true, it always is.

I admit, I read it through twice and almost replied, the idea of getting up a half-hour earlier each day and getting some “fun money” is pretty seductive. Fortunately, my front-brain regained control of things and a quick Google search revealed it to be yet another variation on check fraud scams. This time preying on job-hunters for added despicability. I reported the email to Monster. Here’s the full text, hopefully this gets some pagerank and keeps the truth (more truth) about these fraudsters easily accessible:
