Stomper Baizurah had placed a request for part-time work on an online job portal and was shocked when she received an offer that sounded too good to be true yesterday (Aug 1).
She had gotten a message from someone who introduced himself as a businessman who "always" travels out of the country for work.
In the message, he said that he wanted Baizurah to receive parcels from a postman at her home address on his behalf.
"The contents of the parcel are laptop, phone [and] digital camera. You are eligible to take any of the items [for] personal use for yourself," said the unusual message in broken English.
It added, "It's very convenient without any stress. The payment is $550 a week. You must be very willing and sincere if you are willing to work and start immediately."
A wary Baizurah said:
"I came across this email that requested my email address. I thought it was a data entry job so I replied with my email address.
"Was shocked to see such a job offered. Doesn't it look like a scam?"
She also told Stomp that she responded to the message to politely decline the job as it sounded too good to be true.
