    If you get an email offering a part-time position with the state, you’re advised not to respond and immediately delete the message, according to the California Employment Development Department (EDD).

    The state has gotten several reports of email messages from someone claiming to be Victoria Bradshaw, Secretary of the Labor and Workforce Development Agency (LWDA) offering the recipient a part-time job.

    The message asks for an email address for “more information.”

    According to a release on the EDD’s website, the messages have been tracked to Internet spammers operating outside the U.S.

    “Anyone receiving such an email should not respond and immediately delete the message,” the EDD release suggests.
