NB: We are currently attempting to cut off the overflow of unsolicited emails delivered our company's emails by using a personal mailbox for initial communication. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience.
It's me again...isn't it funny the scammers have to include a NB note at the very end of the stupid fake job message to let us concerned about emailing the scammer's email of Mary.Stevens28@gmail.com to know they are "attempting to cut off the overflow of unsolicited emails delivered our company's emails by using a personal mailbox for initial communication. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience."
How funny is that...so this person decided they don't want to actually show a domain for the company because they want to supposedly cut off the overflow of unsolicited emails delivered.
Made me scratch my head on this one...stay far away from this job scam. It isn't a real job and only serves for you to pass along all your personal information for the scammers delight and future abuse.
Have a good week everyone!!
