The Fake Job Offer Email

I just received a spam email that I just had to share with all of you. First off you have to know it’s spam based on the subject line. Then naturally I checked the source to see what email address this was coming from. A gmail account, yes it at lest has the company’s name in the first half of the email but come on folks, a gmail account?

Thirdly, and most importantly please look at the sign off. “Yours faithfully”, really? I’m sorry am I dating someone from 1873?  Heck I don’t even speak like that WITH my boyfriend.

Thought I would share this with all of you job hunters. You’ll get this a lot and it may seem pretty legit but ALWAYS check the email account and make sure it’s valid. Also just read critically into the wording, if anything seems fishy  it probably is. Sadly this is a fact of life when you have your resume posted in places online.  Just be aware and keep on chuggin’ folks, you’ll get there soon!
