                      Laboratory Analyst II

                      I think was I the just victim of a scam. Guy with very bad English calls me, and after a series of unintelligible exchanges he sets me up with an interview for eleven o’clock on a Thursday, with which looks like a crappy job. No one ever called. Now I’m getting spammed with jobs that have nothing to do with me. I know it’s desperate out there, but please be aware of these scams.
