THIS IS MOST DEFINITELY A SCAM! Do not send money for a "job offer". A "job" does not require a payment to do. Think about it. If you applied for a job for any company in an actual building somewhere, they certainly would not ask you to pay them $15 for training materials to learn how to do your job. There are many variables of this scam out there. Ignore them, they just want your money and you will NOT make any money.

I don't think anything that asks for money, even for training, is legit. It's probably a scam, be careful!!!

this is a scam, believe me. why should you pay for a training? if they are legit they should provide a free training for their hired workers. is not a valid email format for a legit company. think about it. it is a scam.

Do not fall for that one. All they are doing is selling you the right to resell that program. Most people avoid those completely
