I am very disappointed that job scammers have infiltrated Monster.com and Yahoo Hot jobs. Now I am starting to receive email notifications that companies have reviewed my resume and now want to hire me for jobs that do not exist. Or these jobs exist to serve as a scam because there is absolutely no way I can make money like what is described below and with such simple hours per day and week. I really wish I had the nerve to send all my personal information to secure fake employment just to take these scammers for a ride, but for now, I'm not nerve ready. I'd rather just expose the job as a fake job and sit back and hopefully help others from parting from any good money they may already have in favor of scams like the one below.
Below is the fake job offer:
