I received an "URGENT." job offer...


So I got a fun email a while back and thought I'd share. Somehow this email slipped through all the junk mail filters. As soon as I saw it sitting in my inbox I already knew it was spam, but I was interested, so I opened the email and began to read.


The email starts off...

Data entry. Again, no specifications. Do I need computer skills? Typewriter skillz? Is it boring stuff like computer use statistics? Or am I inputting data on the soon-to-be uprising of the new age dragons from Elgon?



"Receive calls/ at specific times." So I'm receiving random calls (Stranger Danger, anyone?), and I am to receive some calls at specific times. This is definitely starting to sound...well, even more fishy.

Some rando you met on the internet made the actual appointment or reservation, right? I have a feeling the flights are either to Canada, Russia, or the Ca
