The message was funny and quite suspicious. I personally wouldn't even bother. Also, Craig's list-- come on lol.
Um, right? I'm gonna follow this instinct.
Just the venue, Craig's List, sets off warning bells in my mind. That they've put their ad on CL instead of other, more legitimate literary venues, tells me these guys don't know squat.
Thanks for posting,
John!! Welcome back! And, yes, that's what I was thinking, too! If they're connected within the industry, CL doesn't seem like the place they would be posting to find qualified writers... Just weird.
