The fact that they told me I was hired when I had only asked for info seemed kinda strange.
 Then they sent me this:

It took quite a bit of digging on the internet, but I finally found someone else who had fallen for this and found out it’s a scam.

 

They send fake checks, and they ask you to send the money to newspapers that don’t exist. Then you get nailed for passing bad checks and they keep the money when it arrives.

 

It’s a convincing scam because:

 

They don’t ask for much info, just mailing address and email.

They don’t promise incredible money or get get rich quick ideas, just 400 to 800 a week.

They have their own website and will answer your emails.
