Still diligently applying, Tim got a response that amused us both.
It congratulated him on receiving a tentative offer of employment with Miller Brewing Company. Sounds great, right?
All the applicant had to do was send a copy of his credit report to the company. Oh, and this offer expired in 72 hours.
What particularly amused me was that this contact for Miller was using an email that ended in “coachleather-usa.com.”
But obviously the real alarm-sounder here was that any copy would ask for you to supply your credit report.
Still, there are a lot of desperate people out there these days. I wonder how many will follow through without thinking, just because it sounds like the answer to their prayers.
Have any of you heard about something like this? People preying on the desperation of the unemployed?
