Would you trust this job?
I replied to a posting on craigslist.com and this is the response I got. Assuming this job is legit it would be awesome because I'll be starting my student-teaching in a couple weeks, and it'll be hard for me to keep my current job. My husband's job should be able to cover all our expenses, but it would be nice to have a little cushion. Anyone have any experience with a job like this. I'm just leary of anything that makes you pay money up front (even if it's only $10). And I've never obtained a job over the internet before. Any advise would be appreciated, and if I should post this somewhere else just let me know. Thanks! Here's the e-mail: Hello there! Thank you for your interest in our data entry work opportunity.
