If it quacks like a duck...

I responded to an ad for typists. I should have known that the odds were against it being a legitimate work-from-home opportunity, but I e-mailed them anyway. It's the classic "make money processing applications" scam. You know, the one where you place ads looking for people who want to earn a living working from home as typists, and then charge the poor schmucks $20 for "training." The so-called training amounts to telling them to place an ad in the paper advertising for people who want to earn a living working from home, and then charging them $20 for "training." Yeah. Sorry bud, I fell for that one once, when I was young and naive. Now I know better:

Legitimate work opportunities do not require you to pay for your own training.

I've considered several responses -- some snarky, some diplomatic -- and ultimately decided to just round file this one.

Let me ask you - do you speak a language other than English?

Not fluently, and not for a while now. I used to know some French and Spanish though.

If you're interested, email me and I will throw you a link to my place of employment. I have no idea if they are hiring, but it's a work from home position. The pay isn't great. You mostly choose your own hours. (and I happen to know that spanish verifier is overworked)
