Found an ad on Craigslist thursday for a construction management company looking for skilled workers. I emailed them me resume and I got an email back. It seems just a little fishy, but nothing serious. Here's the e-mail:

Hi Chris,
You replied to our ad for skilled tradesmen on Craigs List,our
company Construction Management DB manages the construction of
Federal,State and Commercial projects.Currently we have two projects
starting soon in your area. Three of our sub contractors are
interested in hiring you,they are paying union scale plus production
bounses,if you still need work. These are government projects so you
will need to furnish your prospective employers with a background
report.The background report will be limited to major
felonies(murder,terrorism,ect)so if you have minor issues in your past
it won't be a problem.The background reports are done at Corporate
Investigative Services
Below are your employer ID numbers you will need these when filling
out the form at Corporate Investigative Services.Your Employer ID
Numbers = [774/421/454] these indentify the employers so your
background report can be sent to them.
In The Best Regards,
Charles Wolfe
Manager ? Skilled Trades Dept


So, I clicked on the background check website, and it went to a very cheap, amateur looking website that wanted me to PAY for a background check to be mailed to prospective employers. I drew the line right then and there.

The management company in out of D.C. and their website is also very cheap and crappy, and they aren't listed in the Better Business Bureau.

What do you think? They could have been legit, but I don't need work THAT bad.
