Hi guys just a bit curious to this job offer. Well first of all the first email I got from this guy was basically asking me to reply to the email and giving him my personal information. All that was asked was my phone number, address, postal code (Canada), and email address. he never asked for my SIN number or anything like that. So I sent him that email with the info. The job is basically for a secret shopper. Anyway this is the second email he sent me and I already replied and rejected his offer but I justed wanted to see if it was a scam.
The original ad for the job had no company name or anything. Just this job posting and his name. Here is the email:
