Scam Job Offer

I received the following email today.

"Good Day

We are in search of company representative, who can handle payments from our customers in your location, if you are interested, Please apply as soon as possible for further inquires. Thank you send mail to
Barrister James Porter"

It reaks of scammy-ness. does not apear active at all just for starters.  The sender of the email appears to be from Creighton University,  a Jesuit Catholic University out of Omaha Nebraska.   I do not know the sender.  The job offer is very suspicious of course.  The description is painfully short and very vague plus the lack of proper grammar/sentence structure for a lawyer/barrister is raising so many red flags.  This is also seeming to be leading to a popular scam where you get sent money and you have to turn around and send money right away to someone else.  This is because you have to do this before the cheques often bounce and therefore you are often left with less money and NSF charges up the wazzoo.

I reported this email to Phonebusters since they deal with internet frauds and scams as well.
