I had lost my job in May, so I was looking on www.Craigslist.com for local jobs. I came uppon the posting that said:

Date: 2009-06-30, 8:12AM MDT
-Our weight loss product just hit the market and we need to conduct a study on feedback on our product. $1600 at the end of the thirty day period to compensate you for your time.Only a few spots remaining so please do not hesitate to contact.
-Compensation: 1200-1700
Principals only. Recruiters, please don't contact this job poster.
Please, no phone calls about this job!
Please do not contact job poster about other services, products or commercial interests.

I got so excited, and researched the product Resveratrol. It seemed like a good product. And it would really help me. So I signed up for the thirty day trial. It was free as long aqs i payed for shipping. I recived this email right before I got the product in the mail:

Hello,

As stated in the weight loss advert, we need 50 participates that are willing to take a popular diet pill on a daily basis for thirty days. Everyday we will be recording any differences, and finish the study at the 30th day. If you don't want your name used publicly in the study, then please say so. At the same time, we will compensate you $1600 for your participation. This will be paid in check, on last day.
We will meet a total of four times, and the times will depend on your availability time. Meeting places will be at a local gym of your choice.
The popular diet pill that you will be taking is called Resvie. This weight loss product has been used by several famous people, like Ophra Winfrey. We were lucky enough to have them offer a free trial for us.

So I emailed her back saying that my boyfriend and I have recieved the product and we are ready to start the study. I have never recieved an email back. And now my boyfriend and I are each $186-$200 in the hole with our bank because we keep getting charged for the product when they told us it was canceled. And it was all because of this one posting and email.
