I was contacted by this email yesterday. I was told I was a good fit for the job. I was requested sensitive information.
May I get more info on him?
Did you ever get paid?

Victim Location 43228
Total money lost $60
Type of a scam Employment
This gentleman posted a job opportunity via OhioMeansJobs.com and requested a Personal Assistant/ Administrative Assistant to help him with financial assistance with his business being a single parent and living within the Franklin County, Columbus, OH metropolitan area. After receiving his first request of posting a job opportunity on Craigslist for a Errand/Housekeeper/Cleaner I put my best foot forward to accommodate his request. See below. However, yesterday 01/05/2016 I received another email from him [email protected] and requested that the next task was to go to Office Max/Office Depot to purchase something call Check Paper and IMR Ink. The task at hand for my next project was to prepare checks for his clients. I emailed him and told him that I do not feel comfortable with that request and he needs to pay for those items if I am to continue with endeavor. No call from him as of this moment concerned that this this a scam of some sort and everyone needs to be on the lookout for predators of this sort.
When I tried calling he doesn’t answer.
When I asked him for a company website or any information, he ignored the question asking when can I start.
