Scam Description

I am on a website for tech professionals, Braintrust.com, where we have people submit contract work. I applied to his ad, Remote real estate Virtual Assistant. He emailed me asking if I was interested and explained the terms of the set up. I would be handling 4-6 listings a week, posting them to various rental websites and I would be paid $750 a week to do so. After a week of setting up ads for him with pics, pricing, terms, I started getting emails from each site asking me to verify that I owned the property. Of course I did not, but whenever I provided his email or phone number I was told that the accounts are locked. After reviewing a number of other sites, I came to the conclusion that he is definitely a scam artist. One site, Rental Source, confirmed this as well.
