Hey, Cindy. Yes, we've filled a handful of jobs. We're about to post a new one, but I'm still working on it. And, yes, we do have a mass transit benefit for employees. On the check scam, it's pretty narrowly targeted. People respond to spam that offers to connect them to "free cash grants from government and foundations." They then get a check from "Benetech" with a request to send a check back for a certain smaller amount to "Benetech" for taxes. The check they get bounces, and the scammers get the money. This is a variation on the "advance fee" scam that is so prevalent on the Internet. The bottom line is that if someone promises you free money, it's too good to be true. I don't expect that our users would respond to such spam.

I never read the benetech page. I just go to the log-in page. But at the benetech page was a warning about a fraudulent check scam using Benetech. Jim, I think something like that should also be sent to the lists, if you or someone in the organization would have time. smile Cindy To unsubscribe from this list send a blank Email to bksvol-discuss-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx put the word 'unsubscribe' by itself in the subject line.
