Should I accept an internship from a new/suspicious looking company?

Hello, I found an internship in LinkedIn and they emailed me telling me to send a resume. However, I went to the website and the company is suspicious looking. It is also run by college/high school students? Should I send my resume? Should I take this opportunity?

If you didn’t apply (Unless someone you know personally recommended you or were headhunted but headhunting is for professionals) stay away also a resume can have personal info and also if the internship has no info on duties I’d back the h-|| away. Also if it run by students it depends on the recognition of it or if you know the founders. If I (midwest) got a internship offer from someone I didn’t know in Maine I’d delete it.
