Your first clue that it is a scam is the email address. Scammers use such names like: They are always free throw away email addresses so they can hurry and get another when they get banned from Craigslist with them. They always use names that are obviously phony and often add two to three numbers to it to make it appear as if the name was in use and they had to add numbers in order to get it. Many times, they will use language like "Technician Required" or "We are seeking office assistant", and the compensation is extremely high for a job similar to what a legit company would offer. Nobody pays $19.00 to $38.00 per hour for a part time hotel security guard. If you respond, you will get an email that says saying something like: "We think you will be ideal person" or "We reviewed your response and this you are right" (Note the type of language and clerical errors showing they must be using a translation program) and to apply for the job, you are given a link to enter all personal information and for direct deposit "which they require" you enter your banking information. Many times, these are posted between 1am and 4am due to time differences. What boss will have his assistant post an ad this early when the normal work hours are roughly 7 am to 3 pm? It takes more then one flag to get it banned, and I will flag as I see them, but I am also surprised when I see it still there three days later. I do have a job and look from time to time trying to convince my daughter to move up here and show her there are some great jobs to be had and then I have to weed through the garbage to find the real ones. If more people watched and flagged as "prohibited" and get these deleted as early as possible, eventually, they will stop posting knowing people are on to their scam. I do know how their scam works because I almost fell for the okey doke two years ago and started the online application until it asked for my banking info. Companies simply do not ask for this until you are actually hired and begin working and then they will usually give you a form to attach a voided check to, or a printed form from your bank (so they do not send a paycheck to a wrong account if you transpose an account number). When you catch on and never finish the online application, after awhile, you start getting spam email and end up needed a program like spamfighter to filter it out. Good luck in your job search, but just beware that there are idiots trying to take advantage of a person trying to get a job and they see a job they think they are qualified for and will make as much as Bill Gates and swallow the hook.
