Suffice to say, I figured out this was a scam in less than 10 minutes but I thought it would be helpful to others to post this on an anti scammer website. This kind of thing really rots my socks off! I am out of work and it is necessary to maintain a rather public online presence (because that is how one gets a job in the age of the internet) and those desperate for a job are more susceptible to this nonsense. This is a re-mailing scam. These guys want to hire you so you can take the fall for fencing stolen goods through the US mail (a federal offense!) if and when the hammer comes down. Notice that things like where the email came from (email service and domain name), is the company name mentioned (if it is than look it up on glassdoor or some other legitimate website) and does the offer look too good to be true.
I didn't discover this was a scam through magic or because I am some special kind of genius. It was because someone posted on this website. I am paying forward. Think it through and look it up!

Update: The email address this scammer used is [email protected].

Hello galoot1000,
Please post the email address the scammer used along with his telephone number if known.

I am glad that you know it is a scam and did not waste any more time on this criminal.

It is ALWAYS a scam
If the pet seller or shipper asks for money to be sent via Western Union, Money Gram, any brand of gift card. Walmart To Walmart , Zelle , PayPal friends and family option, or mentions Cameroon
