I received a email from a company saying they were called world voice news, it looked like a regular, average, online job application email, and since i've been searching for jobs online i thought i'd check it out. The email stated that they had reviewed my online resume and said i would be perfect for an editor position. I was very excited because i would love to work as an editor for a news paper.

It said you would have to apply at there website so i followed the link on the email and all it asked me for was my name, address, phone number and some contact info. I was thinking to myself while i was doing it, shouldn't they ask me for some job type info or application info like last jobs i had or something. It just didnt seem right, anyway i saw a continue button, so i was thinking that maybe on the next page it would have the rest of the questions, needless to say it took me to several stupid surveys, and it also had asked me if i wanted to continue my education, now i knew that if i said yes they just send me stupid online education email junk crap, so i said no.

Anyway Needless to say, after i said no it just kept taking me to more stupid sites that were asking me if i wanted to register for credit cards, or giftcards, it was never endless, i finally just gave up and closed the window.

I was alittle upset because i actually thought it was a real opportunity for a job. And the reason i didnt see it as a scam is because i have applied at alot of online job sites that show you what jobs are available in your city, so i get daily emails telling me what positions are available in my area that are real.

I pressed the button on there email that says Please, stop_sending me employment_offers!. but needless to say they keep sending me their junkmail. I hate it.

Anyway point being if you get a letter like this dont awnser it, delete it, spam it, whatever just dont reply, dont follow the link, dont apply, dont be fooled by this stupid company that just wants to conn you.
