Got an email from SILVER INC? There is a separate post for that “company” here.
Here is yet another scam job email. It should be noted that these posts help thousands of people each week who arrive here on the blog after searching the web for email addresses, phone numbers, or text from these emails.
I know these posts are terribly boring for regular readers here but I hope you won’t mind – it is for a great cause.
