Type of a scam Employment
The "I failed Elementary school English" utilized in the text messages are highlighted by the poor spelling and punctuation. However, the scammer has definately outdone him/herself with the improper sentence structure and spacing then threw in the incorrect use of capital letters and parenthesis to put it over the top. The scammer definitely deserves a great, big, construction paper ribbon with a shiny gold "Participation" sticker. Here are the texts:
