Oh lord, I love the internet. Did you ever get a letter about a Nigerian prince desperate to give you his inheritance, only you had to send him a wire with money so he would be able to, I don’t know, liberate his funds from…yeah, it gets kind of foggy there. Anyway. That shit is still going on! Good old scammers just never give up. And now they’re preying on anyone with a resume online, apparently.
I was just treated to this gem, copied word for word from the email I received, including the total lack of signature. I have to wonder if anyone really buys this. There are several key words that worry me. Let’s take a look:
