    Not sure, but I imagine you could “rush” all sorts of fun things to that address just to annoy the crap out this shadeball.

      Like envelopes of glitter. The day ruiner!

    I would also consider that maybe the address listed isn’t the original poster of this note.

    • JoDa

      Taking a stab at the blurred out info (which is weird to blur out given that the advertisement is posted in public), it may be a dormitory. That makes me believe that the person posting may just be gullible enough to get hooked into some work-from-home pyramid scheme. And also post their real address and not, you know, go get a PO Box if you’re going to encourage the general public to mail you things.

        Also, it looks like a closed Salvation Army to me if I’m seeing the blur correctly. Anyone know what’s there now? Is it some kind of dorm?

  • shepherder

    wait, how am i supposed to send in my $4 if the address is blurred out?

    • Ethelred the Unready

      Just rush in $5.00 and a self addressed stamped envelope to the below address for more information about the blurred out address!

      123 Fake St NW
      Washington, DC 20009

  • hmm

    not necessarily a scam. could be a bad deal, but not necessarily a scam.

    • FridayGirl

      Over 5,100 national companies hiring if you send this one guy $4? Definitely a scam.

    • navyard

      This type of thing used to actually be popular in the classified* sections of newspapers**
      Some of these places actually used to print up booklets and pamphlets with top company addresses of their main HR departments.
      *Classified=sort of like Craigslist, but for jobs.
      **Newspaper=when news sites are printed on paper and delivered to your door

    Incorporate yourself and get 5100 other people to do the same thing. Then “hire” anyone who is willing to do the same thing. More like a pyramid scheme than a scam, but at the end of the day, it’s not real job.

    • textdoc

      +1. Either that or your $4 just buys you information on 5,100 companies hiring people to stuff envelopes (or whatever) at home.

  • anon

    The address appears to be the Salvation Army on Harvard St.
