I inquired about a position on Craig's List for a warehouse worker in my hometown. I received a response from a Mr. Henry Murphy, this is the letter I received:

Greetings John,

My name is Henry Murphy and Im the senior staffing coordinator at Empower Logistics, LLC.

I am pleased to inform you that you are being extended a tentative offer of employment for the available warehouse position within our company.

Feeling that this was suspicious I decided to check it out. I went to the website for Empower Logistics and called the contact number. It was a convincing little ruse with an automated answering message that asked you to say your name then it asks you to hold while they connect you.  It played one of my favorite jazz classics while I waited even advising me that I could press "1" to leave a message at any time.

After about 20 sec. a message comes on saying that a Larry (somebody) wasn't available and to leave a message. Knew it was a scam as soon as I saw the "unique" link that was for me to use to get my free credit report which I needed to provide to the company to be hired. Whoever heard of such a thing.
