So, reading the tasks needed to be done, I noticed there were "personal errands" and stuff like that. I became very cautious and decided to check on the internet.I found this site and I wasn't really surprised to notice the name of Craig Ashley...
I thought Craiglist was a serious website to find jobs, but it's obviously not.
Here is the email he sent me after I replied to the ad from Craiglist. I see that it's the exact same email I read he sent to someone else that reported him here.
I am glad I was cautious about this.
How are you doing ?
