Is it safe to take a housekeeping job from craigslist?
A close friend of mine found a local housekeeping job from someone with poor, foreign-sounding english skills on reddit. The person says he and his wife are from England and are offering $45 an hour when they move into town to clean their apartment for a week (just a couple of hours every few days). It just seems kind of weird that someone with enough money to pay someone $45 an hour for housecleaning would get an apartment instead of buying a house to begin with. Is there reason for suspicion here?
