Is this job from career builder a scam?
Having seen your resume I would like to offer you a position with our company. My name is Eileen Bell and I am the International Human Resource Manager of Lab Corp Center Solution PLC.

You can use the "Find Agent Location" search function on the Western Union website to find an office close to you. With every check that you process you instantly earn 10% from its total value cash in hand and also a consistent bonus. How does it work: you will receive the first check as soon as you send back the filled contract with your actual name and address which we need to be able to send the check to you.
