Just had this letter, someone supposedy has sent me their resume, saying they are intersted in the job I am offering, I dont think so lol!!

Presume the zip is some rubbish, like a trojan or malware??

Anyway, here is the letter and its headers!!

Zip not attached for safety reasons, may dowmload it, then do a virus scan on it, but not open it up!!

Good afternoon.

I have figured out that you have an available job.
I am quiet intrested in it. So I send you my resume,

Looking forward to your reply.
Thank you.


The extensive eucalyptus plantations in Algeria, teach us the value of afforesting, vast tracks having been thereby rendered healthful and cultivable.Unforgettable is the glimpse of the Place Stanislas, with its bronze gates, fountains, and statue, worthy of a great capital; of the beautiful figure of Duke Antonio of Lorraine on horseback, under an archway of flamboyant Gothic; of the Ducal Palace and its airy colonnade; lastly, of the picturesque old city gate, the Porte de la Crafie, one of the most striking monuments of the kind in France. In the Ducal Palace are shown the rich tapestries found in the tent of Charles le Temeraire after his defeat before Nancy, and other relics of that Haroun-al-Raschid of his epoch, who bivouacked off gold and silver plate, and wore on the battle-field diamonds worth half a million.

If it's a scam of some sort, it's unfamiliar to me. I'm guessing it was some bit of malware, spam, or perhaps a genuine inquiry. Not all applicants are impressive. Wink

ETA: This bit is strange:

I'm surprised you can see it since it's listed as "Bcc" but it looks like a chunk of address guesses that were generated by a spammer. The fact that you are listing a job could be pure coincidence.

If it helps I had something similar earlier. the only thing I can say is to be very cautious in future. I know I will be....But this should be "Baiting 101" and I slipped up and was very lucky.

Although I am not advertising for a job, I am registered on several sites as looking for a job, so that is where the scammers got my address. My advice, delete immediately..
