I found a job opportunity on Craig's List, South Florida...the job was offered as "Customer Service Desk Associate." I applied for the position, and received an e-mail from someone named "Aniska Elliott" who was the liaison between myself and "Dr. Mattew Spencer." Dr. Spencer was supposed to do an online interview with me, through Yahoo Messenger.
I have pasted his part of the conversation below, so you can see the nature of the scam, I basically cut him short by voicing concerns regarding the security of this so-called work from home opportunity, and closed the conversation. This obviously phony Dr. Mattew Spencer abruptly signed off without even closing the "interview" professionally which led me to look him up and I found this website, I hope this helps. Glad I didn't fall for it!!! I thought he had too many typo's, among many other errors to be legit.
