Too Good To Be True?

Too Good To Be True?

So I've been browsing around and applying for jobs on Craigslist for the past few days, and today I get an email for a Newspaper Advertiser Job. It looks pretty good, but as everyone knows, Craigslist is infamous for scams. I tried doing a little bit of research but didn't find anything. But basically, they pay you $100 per ad you post for them, with 4-10 ads a week.

I copied and pasted the ad below. Any opinions on how legit it is? Thanks!
