Default Tell Me What You think

Yesterday a woman I know handed me the following letter and asked what I thought. She said it just turned up in her email and she is not looking for a job so it was unsolicited. It was very professional and had pages of descriptions of what the job entailed. Also a page explaining how to handle the foreign funds. Of course there was an application for the job. My first thought is RUN!! as fast and as far as you can from this. Red flags for this were as follows.
Unsolicited e-mail
Handling funds from foreign countries
Application seems like a way to get her info.
sounds way too good to be true.
So I decided to put it to the experts for an answer.....CruiseMates
