in reply to Job offer too good to be true

There are lots of good Perl programmers out there, especially since they are searching internationally. Why are their requirements so low? It doesn't make sense. The salary is not very high, especially given that Japan is rather expensive. I can think of only three different reasons:

  • They are scammers. "Please pay a $500 fee so we can send in and gauge your application."
  • They look for programmers doing semi-legal/illegal/unethical work.
  • They can't find anyone at this salary? Unlikely...

    Well, I've received a preliminary reply from the recruiter. It's notably short on details, but I have not been asked to pay a fee of any sort. I don't think it's a scam.

    I had been hoping that some of the perl programemrs already involved would drop by and say hi, but no luck yet.

    I didn't believe in evil until I dated it.

      Well, keep us updated. I'm interested to see how it turns out. I wish for you that it is a legit and nice job - should be nice to have a chance to stay in Tokyo and be paid for it!
