Does this email for a job seem legit to you?

I got this in the mail and can not tell whether it is real or fake...I get a mix of them but none this enthusiastic. I am skeptical, so let me know what you think.

    Not legit. I've gotten several. It's a money market wiring scheme. They're fishing for your info. Delete and don't reply.

    No, it is a scam. There are SO many things wrong with this, no one would write so personally to a person they may hire to work for them. Always making excuses for what they think they should be doing, and so many different ones. Redundant.

    No one will hire from a resume, they require at least one interview.

    Grammar is atrocious, a BIG tip-off.

    Etc., etc.,etc.

    delete, looks like a scam... block sender from your inbox... stay away from these types of emails, as 99% - correction 100% of the time they are scams... "beware"... they always sound like a great opportunity and that's how they lure people into their evil trap... if it sounds to good to be true, it's not...
