    Default an email from an agent

    ...I've just received is advertising a c# job with a fortune 500 company, globally respected and all that bollocks.

    This has to be one of the all time classics of pimp cock ups as he's sent it simultaneously to about 100 recipients (I didn't bother counting there's too many) all visible on the email...the biggest fishing net I've ever seen.

    I mailed him back to tell him the error of his ways and advised him to never contact me again...I wouldn't be at all surprised if a few bods on here receive it also.

    I did think about doing that but then considered he's got a pretty good spamming operation going all on his own.

    Dear Jo,


    Yours Sincerely,
    Michael Davies

    .................................

    That's it!! No follow up - what a complete imbecile!

    I got a great one this week:

    Offered a "surpurb opportunity" requiring C++ COM working on GIS at the fantastic rate of 30 pound an hour.

    It went straight into the trash.

    I've started receiving a flurry of emails that I'm being cc'd in on from other recipients of this spam, some responding to the pimp as I did to tell him what a nob he is. Others are jokingly (I hope) saying they're selling the address list onto other spammers.

    What a complete numpty.

    you knob! this is like one of the supermodels who once said "i dont get out of bed for less than 10K"...

    you are getting top dollar...show some modesty...most people getting 30 quid an hour in the UK are VERY WELL PAID

    you are getting top dollar because nobody wants to do this s-h-i-t work dude....supply and demand. Not because you have some timeless value.

    Worst "I'm on a low rate (but then again I am an unprofessional build monkey who walks off site and leaves the client in the tulip)" post ever.
