You’ve Got Spam

I love some of the things I get in my inbox. This morning I received the below e-mail. Normally when I receive junk like this I just delete it but since I was in one of my “Moods” I decided to go ahead and reply back. I love how he sent it in Comic Sans MS font. I deleted last names and e-mail addresses but everything else is as it was sent! 

Dear Mr. P,
Thank you for taking the time to review my resume. I truly regret that you overlooked the fact that I am not stupid when you were reviewing my resume.
I am sure Cass Screw Machine Products is a well established Manufacturing Firm but, at this time I do not wish to be Screwed.

  1. Can you even stand how dumb people really think you are? I got an email like this one day only they wanted my bank account numbers so they could deposit money in MY account!!!!

  2. They keep sending crap like this to people because you might be surprised as to how many people actually fall for it. If they send out 1 million of these and get only 1% of the response they are looking for, they are still sucessful. If it’s credit cards and they get a buttload of number. 😀

    THANKFULLY, your not stupid. LOL

  3. You have sooo much to worry about….sorry this is on a stupid list for you!

  4. You mean you have people lined up to give you jobs for which you didn’t even apply? Now that’s what I call being in demand!

    I see your Friday post is protected so I’ll catch up with you next time 🙂

    so what do they want eventually…because i have been responding…i saw an ad in the paper offering a job..and being unemployed i sent in a resume..they replied with an email the same as the one on top of the page.

    • Eventually they will want your bank account information and personal information. They will drain your bank account and steal your ID. Be very careful when you respond to these things and never give out your personal info!
