OTOH, maybe you'll love it.
I think you should take it.
Not even close to being true.
Worst thing that could happen is they get him to move down there, rent an appartment with a 12 month obligation (or penalty for early move out), start slow paying him after a couple of months and put him in a bind financially in an area I'll assume he knows few people.
If this was in his backyard, and he could maintain his current residence, or live with someone he knows until he's satisfied that the job is stable, that is one thing, but he's moving a long way for someone he's never meet face to face. I'll assume he's never seen the facilities, talked to any potential co workers, etc... There is a lot more risk than just not liking the job.
