A year ago, I received an email claiming I applied for an Admin position, I disregarded it as spam but a few days later I received an envelope in mail from the same person with a postal money order and instructions to deposit it in my personal bank account.  The note was adamant that I should not try to cash it and only deposit it and that I should send a certain amount to a western union account and to keep the balance for my salary. Looking at the money order I honestly could not tell it was fake.  I took it to the post office and they confirmed my suspicions and confiscated the entire envelope. I wasn't looking for a job and not sure how this person got my info, but there are honest people out their who may have otherwise fell victim to this scams out of being in a desperate situation. We should always remember scammers are always one step ahead of us, that's their job.
