Can someone please tell me if this is a legitimate job offer?
I have been unemployed for two years now. I have received plenty of emails regarding jobs, many I know right off the bat are scams. This one I think may be a scam, however they sound very legit. Can someone please help me decided if this company is real or not? I need employment, and this sound like a great opportunity. But I would like verification that I am not doing something illegal.

There's a huge excess of labor and a shortage of jobs. Why on earth would companies spam you with job offers? It's obviously a scam, the only real way to get a job is to go after companies yourself or through a legitimate job program like monster.com
