I got scammed from someone claiming Hopewell Holdings. They sent me a job offer and then shortly a cashiers check. Then they asked me to send some of the money and keep $400 of it as my pay. I had my bank hold the money until we know it cleared. Sure enough, it was no good. My bank reversed the charges before it was too late. Just as a warning to any other potential victims, Here is what I got:

Thanks so much for posting about that... I received the same email. I inquired about a receptionist position but I never send my resume until I get a response. The email was fishy when it said something about after "reviewing my resume" and I kind of thought something was up. My email was literally verbatim to what you posted. Thanks for the warning!
