Created an account because I screwed up and almost fell for this one. If it wasn't for this website and a smart friend, I would be out a good amount of money and time. He contacted me, I gave him the info, he waited a few days then texted me requesting that I purchase and print checks for him while he's away. It seemed a little odd, and when he wouldn't tell me what program I'd be using to print the checks (Quickbooks, Quicken, Etc.) I searched for the information online. VOILA! Found this post. Below is the exact email. The man's name is Francisco Guzman and the email he used is [email protected]

Note to self, desperation for a job leads to bad decision making.

This Francisco Guzman guy is on a rampage. I sent my resume in response to a Craigslist ad for an administrative assistant position and thought their response was a little strange. I googled his name before I replied to the job offer and found this post. PHEW. He didn't ask for my specific but he did offer less money than the others, what a jerk. :|

Beware, the email I received the job offer from was [email protected]
