Type of a scam Employment

I applied to a company that called itself White Water Adventurers, INC. I sent them my resume and expressed my interest. I even emailed the company at [email protected] to make sure it was a legitimate ad. However, I think whoever ran this ad on Indeed.com has possibly hacked into this company’s website. My first suspicion that this was a bogus ad was too high rate of pay for a high school graduate with little or no experience. My second red flag is the ad had a misspelling in it. Here is a copy of the original ad as well as *Robert’s* first response. Notice even though I sent him my resume, the letter addresses me as "Applicant." I believe White Water Adventurers, Inc. is a real company but whoever this is — appears to be impersonating the CEO of a legitimate company. Why would a rafting company in Pennsylvania be branching out to Missouri when they don’t offer river rafting in Missouri? By the way, this ad was sponsored by Indeed.com which is why I trusted it more but I should not have. In addition the original ad offered 15 or 16 per hour and then the offer for $510 for 3 days a week would make it $34.00 per hour. More red flags. I think the scammer copied information about the real Robert & Shirley from the company’s website. I feel like a fool for even sending my resume to *Robert* in the first place.
