Just an update. I know a lot of you are as eager as me to get better money coming in, but be careful. I answered a legitimate looking ad for a bookkeeper/accountant position on Craigslist a month ago in the San Antonio area. The next day I got responses back, at first it was all ok, but then it started getting strange. I was told I needed my own laptop and printer to do the job, and I would be sent the money to buy this. I was given a phone number to contact and that was the end of it. A week later I receive 4 USPS Money Orders in the mail for almost $3,200. When I emailed the person who sent them to me, I was told put them in my bank account, buy the laptop, and send the excess to "MoneyGram" Brooklyn New York, and a generic name.
The Money Orders were counterfeit, I didn't cash them, but I can bet that some people might, and then their bank will come back to them for the amount that it shows on the MO, plus also seek legal charges against them. Please be careful when answering and applying online. Scammers, are out to get you, and don't care if you go to jail, or go deeper in debt.
Just a warning...
