Most people despise spam and immediately delete it. Very few would actually make a post about it. I am one of those few people.
Last week, I wrote that I was going to create a few fake resumes and post them around various job boards to attract a few scam emails. About a week had passed and I still didn’t receive a single fake job offer. I was starting to lose hope that one would never come in.
Finally, at 2:30 this morning, a fake job offer came in to my single stay-at-home mother offering her a job as a “Check Processing Manager.” The salary ranges from $100 to $500 per day. Over $100k salary for doing next to nothing, not bad, right? Here’s the job posting.

I’m a bit disappointed because this is one of the laziest attempts I’ve seen to scam someone. It is just the fake check scam we’re seeing constantly. Hopefully the next email will be a bit more interesting.
