*** I actually almost went ahead with this, but just decided to check out the company on google (the company was legit, but when I entered the recruiters name...this scam website automatically popped up). Apparently others have been taken by this.

Be careful & check these things out...it seemed too good to be true to receive $200 just for wiring some money. My first instinct was that it might be some sort of terrorist or robbery scheme. I'm glad I followed my instincts!!!
