I responded to a work-at-home ad on craigslist. They sent me instructions to conduct an on-line interview via yahoo messenger.

Information about the job included the necessity of purchasing software for $320 from a company vendor, which would then be loaded on a free laptop and shipped to me to begin training and work.

When pressed for a telephone number to confirm the offer and conditions of employment, I was given the telephone number of another individual in the middle of their on-line interview who had been instructed to pretend to be a director of the company and confirm everything that I asked.

When exposed, this person told a story about being a young boy in Nigeria who needs money. This is not a legitimate work-at-home opportunity. When I googled MedlinePlus Jobs, there were MULTIPLE on-line employment sites which carry their ads. I have reported this scam both to the director of the National Library of Medicine who is responsible for MedlinePlus (which is a really great website) and also to Craigslist.
