    My horror story involves Craigslist.

    I was looking for new work and saw an ad for an assistant position. The pay was great and it was a virtual assistant position so I was excited. I started to get suspicious when the guy that I was communicating with asked me to set up a bank account and a way to accept credit card payments. It turned out that it wasn’t just a scam but I was processing stolen credit cards! I ended up canceling everything and haven’t looked for a job on Craigslist since. Thankfully I figured out what was going on before I did anything illegal.

    I’m glad that I found this website and wish that I had something like this when I almost got suckered into that scam.

    I saw your post on Twitter and wanted to add my experience! I could REALLY use that gift card 🙂
