Answer: Its a scam! As someone else has said, the use of a YMail account gives it away.As they know there are so many job seekers out there at present, then much like those people who send you discount vouchers off of little blue pills, magical/instant weight loss solutions, would love to meet you and get to know you better, or need 6M moved out of East Africa; these eMails are simply trawling for interest/bait.The scammers are quite happy with a half percent or less response rate, but once they have you the answer will be either:(a) that you need to attend a pre-training seminar, which is either free or at a cost of X(b) that you just don’t make their criteria, but could be trained on a freelance basis at cost of YThey are evn quite open (as they have to be to get inside the law) by inserting the line: “Seminars and training for professional development” which translates as you pay us to train you, then work self employed.This type of problem is appearing regularly on job boards at present, where legitimate MLM business skim for new sign-ups with the offer of riches via “seminars and training.”If you want to check a company out, then the signs to watch out for are no telephone numbers, non-company email addresses, and offers which have seminars and training listed high in their criteria.If a real company or recruiter was interested in you, then 9/10 they would pick up the phone. A push email with few contacts details should read scam every time.All of the European Police forces now have an online crime unit – the UK’s is located with the Met Police. I suggest you find the one local to you, and follow their reporting procedure: these idiots need to be stopped.Good Luck!
