Email Scam by somebody

Below is the email that somebody got from a Gmail email ID, perpetrating that they were from VXL Inc.

Not sure what this is all about, but I would guess they would ask for money to confirm a job.  I really train and place people and I would never ask for money to confirm a job for someone.

Based on the language it seems like it is from someone overseas with English as a second language.  The letter is very poorly written.

So, fair warning to everyone, I would not ask people money to confirm a job for you.

The e-mail listed below was sent to me regarding a position with your company.  As you can see, the perpetrator is using gmail and yahoo not a valid VXI Training.
