I just received two virtually identical emails with different sender names stating they were a Fortune 500 human resources screening group who had received my application from some company.

The only thing is, I have not made any job applications in years. Obviously, these are phishing emails hoping to give grief to someone who, in the current job market, may be desperate for a job and will tell them everything they ask.

Here is a copy of what I received.

Hi Jerry,

Many thanks for your desire.

I am the human resources director for a fortune 500 resume screening organization. We help businesses and small enterprises find certified people in different niche markets.

Right now, a client forwarded our company your current inquiry with regards to a vacant placement. Immediately after looking at your cv and skills we have made a decision to advance you and begin a screening procedure. This specific placement is available for immediate employing, and the clientele needs the best candidate quickly.

Be sure to finish our short application form through the safe webpage within this email as a second step prior to the proper interview. This should take under Six minutes. Soon after completion I’ll reply inside of 1-5 trading days.

You can locate the online application below:

Your Own Personal Application form Number will be 187386

You should be aware the application form no. applies just for 24 hrs.

With thanks,
Bruce Dale
Mayer Martin Association LLC

If you get this or anything like it, treat it with suspicion.
