Warning! Email Recruitment Scam

Warning! Email Recruitment Scam

Receiving a pay of 13,000 to 14,000 a month for a 3 hours a day and 5 days a week of work is really enticing. I received an email a day ago from writers@platehead.com offering internet marketing assistants, virtual assistants, and web content writers/copywriters jobs with such rate. For an offer that is so good to be true, we have to check for fraud possibility. I tried to verify from the website regarding the email but what I saw in their homepage is the same copy of the email I got stating that it was an email scam.

If you receive an email like the one below, you may ignore it or better yet, delete it.
