JVC LTD Fraudulent Job Offer

Well, not a day goes by that I don't get emails on my personal named email account I use for job information, leads, and the like. I wonder on a resume you send back to a company that contains your personal information and no bank account number, social security numbers, and the like how something bad could happen. But then I wake up and realize I could have my identity stolen by just supplying that information to any potential job service. It's a scam below...very too good to be true but in my case, unemployed as yet...very tempting if I wasn't so informed to not believe every job offer I get in my in box. Now on the verbatim email scam:

My husband received this email and has spoken with who he believed to be the HR person and hiring manager. Do you have information to back up your claim as a scam?
