Telecommunication job another e-mail scam

Dear editor,

I was very close to becoming a victim of an employment scam and wanted to make you and the citizens of Rockdale aware of it.

There is a guy posting ads for an administrative assistant on Craigslist.

He claims his name is Nelson Rich, or Frank Rich depending on the post.

He offers a job at a reasonable amount of money to be a personal assistant and telecommute from home.

I have a brother that is a computer programmer and asked him to research the e-mail address for me. He discovered that the origin is Nigeria and the ISP and e-mail address are very common for scams.

In today’s economy one-income families like mine with small children are almost desperate to find supplemental income that will allow them to still stay home and maintain a household.

It would have devastated me financially to have fallen victim to this scam.

Thank you very much and I hope that in some way you can make our community aware of this horrible scam.
