Employment scam (8/14/17)

The following scam attempts to trick its victims into contacting the sender back; which will subsequently lead to some form of fraud. Notice the generic email, the too-good-to-be-true message, and the simple fact that the scammer is freely soliciting “job opportunities” from a gmail address; all of these are signs of a scam. Please delete this message if you received it.
