This one almost looks legitimate. It has the format of a corporate job description and vacancy posting. It has a legitimate sounding job title. Let’s see if you can spot the red flags.

So, which red flags caught your attention? Email from one person, directions to email a resume to a second person, and a third person’s name as the HR person does not ease my mind. Neither do the vague job description or task list. The salary level isn’t exactly consistent with the minimal experience level, either. A search for ATT Global Transportation Co. Inc. was a wash. These scammers decided to create a mashup of well-known companies in the attempt to throw the email recipient off guard. Jerks.
I’d rather keep looking than fall for this sort of thing. They either want your contact information or identity so they can make quick cash by selling it.
Be smart and be safe.
