Beware of the ever present job scam which is becoming more and more prevalent. It begins with an email sent to your address which is not recognised as spam by Yahoo at least. It is obvious that it is a scam but I am sure others whose English is less than perfect could be dragged into responding.

here is a link to some useful info.

In this case the email is coming from what looks like a legitimate recruitment website, jobsite@jobsite.co.uk
Invariably there is an attachment as in this case

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...
