A kid who got into Harvard is offering $40K per year on Craigslist to someone who'll take his classes for him.
You might want to sit down for this. Someone going to Harvard is looking for a way around having to earn his rewards in life.
"$40K a year to attend Harvard University" the title of the Craigslist ad read (before being flagged and removed). The poster's request is a simple one:
"I am looking for someone to attend Harvard University pretending to be me for four years, starting August 2014. I will pay for your tuition, books, housing, transportation, and living expenses and pay $40,000 a year with a $10,000 bonus after graduation. All you have to do is attend all classes, pass all tests, and finish all assigned work, while pretending you are me."
Seems fair, in a "shitty premise for a late-80s to early-90s movie" kind of way. It's also more than likely fake, based solely on the prerequisites for the gig:
"You must have either a 4.0 GPA in high school, or a 3.5 or higher GPA from a university to get hired for this."
Fake. This kid is not a Harvard kid. No one going to Harvard would hire a surrogate with a 3.5 "from a university." People who go to Harvard don't think any other universities count as universities. They also don't think any students who attended those other universities count, period.
