I originally saw the ad on Elance.com. I quickly jumped at the opportunity before Elance had a chance to take the ad down.

After sending them my resume and cover letter, I had a strange but brief conversation with someone claiming to be from Computer World. After agreeing to a follow up interview, I googled our conversation.

I found MANY conversations exactly like mine but with different company names. At first, I thought it could just be a template but then I realized that even the place where the person went to school was the same. All of the sites said that it was a scam, and that the scammers eventually ask you to purchase software and try to get all types of personal information. I'm glad I found the information before I gave out any personal information that can not already be found online.

The following is our conversation:
