Friday, January 05, 2007, possible job scam

Recently I received an email from telling me about a job they have and they think that I could be a possible candidate for that position. I copied and pasted the email I received from them below. Well I did submit an application to them and now I realized I should have done some research on them before I did that. I looked around online and found a few sites that said that is a scam. Some of the sites I found are:

Here is the email I received from them:

I also gave my address and phone, but I have not heard back from them and if I do I am just going to ignore them. I'm not going to contact them in any way. Any emails I receive from them will be going in the trash folder as I want nothing to do with a site that is said to be a scam. Be careful, I wish I was before I submitted my information to them.

i also received similar email, i certainly have doubts regarding it because resume i posted on my career site has nothing to do with what they call i am a "perfect fit" its just a generic format they sending people. Something fishy is up, i was in middle of applying for it but then random thought came to my mind which said GOOGLE the company n this blog came to rescue me from these potential scammers.
thank u.
