I received an email from Ernest Freedman, email address email@example.com which has turned out to be an employment scam. Posting so no one else will be affected considering the seriousness with unemployment rates right now. Just a heads up. The company is really AIMCO a real estate business and AIMCO which is a power tools company. He states that he's the CEO of the company. Here's the actual email. Please be cautious when sending your personal information.
