The recent closure of SpamIt.com in Russia has successfully reduced global spam by 20% over the past few days. It's bad enough that spammers are shilling ED drugs - as if sexual potency were the solution to the world's ills - but I've recently seen an uptick in jobseeker spam. This is simply insidious and unconscionable because the senders prey on the desperate and uninformed.

Here's the email I received today from the Marriott Hotel in Toronto, Canada - I haven't edited it or changed the emboldening:

Notice anything official about this? Not a blessed rat's ass thing. This isn't from the Marriott in Toronto, it's probably from some fuc... ah, you know who I'm referring to.

My guess is that these microcephalic morons will ask people for their credit card numbers and rob them blind. Remember jobseekers: never give money to a recruiter (I know I'll catch shit from those who do take a little but you folks are few and far between).

So beware jobseekers, beware; you might think that scummy recruiters are the people you need to be aware of during your search but it's the real bottom dwellers like Dunnell Michel who will shake your hand while they take your watch and wallet.
