This is a job posting on craigslist and several other free sites in and around LA and it is a total scam. This lady says she's in "Human Resources" and calls this Herbalife business opportunity meeting an interview. Don't waste your time unless you want to sell Herbalife.

You will notice this note in the reply email.

"I chose you above others because you have great customer service experience and your resume was also well formatted. Nice Job!"

I found out the next day when I called one of the other professionals I met and exchanged cards with that she wrote the exact same thing in their reply.

You got to hand it to her, she's good at this job scam.
