Employment Spam
Taking a quick break from my book-reading to bring you one of the more funnier pieces of spam I've received lately. My resume is up on a number of job searching websites and today I received this :


Hi, my name is /0001/ and I am the State Director for American Income. I saw your resume on the Internet and felt that I should contact you immediately. Our company currently has openings for several outstanding individuals, like you.

If you are an individual seeking a financially rewarding career with a company that is part of the Torchmark Corporation (TMK) a Top Forbes 400 company that truly believes in Honesty, Integrity and Trust, then I would like to speak with you.

Please reply to this email or call my office at /0002/ so we can schedule an interview.

Best Regards

American Income

I guess good ol' 0001 doesn't really mind that I live in another country. And the fact that he/she changes their name to 0003 by the end shouldn't be a red flag at all.

Spam...comes in all shapes, sizes and creeds.

Vancouver, British Columbia
A patriotic Canadian full of visions of a better Canada, random thoughts and a lot of hot air. Who am I? A struggling writer and photographer, who looks forward to a better Canada. I read. A lot. I learn. A lot. I push myself. A lot. The world is a small place, and getting smaller every day. I'm proud to have friends in every corner of the earth, and abide by the old adage that there are no strangers, only friends we haven't met yet.
