Does this seem legit for a job interview?
You recently sent us a job application via our posting on Craigslist. We're happy to inform you that after reading through your application, we want to bring you in for a meeting and discuss the position in-depth. This will be a group session, with our hiring manager present, and four other candidates. First, we ask that you verify the information you sent via your application by obtaining a credit report. This is in keeping with our company policy and standard procedure for any new hires we make. Be advised that a bad credit history does NOT hurt your chances for the position, and is simply to protect the company against possible issues in the future. Click here to receive your report. Once this step of the process has been completed, email the confirmation # you receive immediately. We are looking to get started in the next week or so, and it is imperative we move forward as quickly as possible. Please, DO NOT include any sensitive information in any emails. Please perform this step quickly, as we would like to fill the position very soon. Upon receipt of your confirmation #, myself or Mr. Dawson, our HR manager, will get back to you to set up a meeting. We appreciate your interest in our company and we look forward to seeing you soon, ------ oneleadgen INC

The group interview process may be legit, but DO NOT give a credit report or information of the like. If a company if legit, it will be able to retrieve your credit score without you knowing.
