It has come to my attention that there is a group of scam artists using a Phishing Scam that reminds me of the Chinese version of the money order fraud scam. They sent a job offer saying they needed your personal information then if you said you were interested, they sent you counterfeit money orders from Walmart then asked you to deposit them in your bank, keep a portion for yourself as a commission, then send the remainder to an address they had set up. The misspellings and such make it obvious these aren't coming from a professional office. I also would mention that there is no Global Rice Science Partnership sending out emails to ask for help from strangers. I live in the dessert, so I don't think this is the climate for rice paddies like in Asia where it rains almost daily.
This is definitely a Phishing Scam, designed to get your personal information and sell it, do NOT reply to this "offer".
The email states:
