Sending extra love and light to my girl today.
Here’s another in a long line of delivery agent positions. It’s a fake job. No company hires individuals to repackage items shipped to them. The ones who offer these jobs are either looking for your information to sell or making you an accomplice to their crimes. This is not a case of ‘maybe this one is real.’ It’s not. No position like this is real.
Here’s the original message:

I love it when the scammers get lazy. It makes is so much easier to spot the fake offers for veteran and newbie scam email recipients. Both Omar Ryan and Ulric Wade contacted me, weeks apart, with identical job offers. Only the contact information and job numbers were different; the job description, qualifications, and full email text were identical. I guess even they have detailed scripts to follow.

Here’s the offer in all its wordy glory.

I told you it was long. Daphne is pretty thorough, but that doesn’t change that this is a fake offer.
I save my spam and fake job offers to share here. There are quite a few saved since my longer-than-expected hiatus. It’s been busy over here between projects, doc and physical therapy appointments, subscription experimentation, and more.
Anyway, this one is a doozy. It’s hard to read without editing because it’s just that bad. I want to respond with a grammar-and spelling-corrected copy of the offer. Damon Walton apparently does not have spell-check on his email platform.
