Just a quick note about the scamming fake job agency, Elite Star Marketing — who target people who are looking for new, better jobs (everyone) and try to solicit their account information through credit checks — they have changed their names to “Impact Media Drive.” Stupidly they forgot to change the browser header title on their website (once you get past the first page, that is).
Here is the letter I got from them with the subject “Omar CREATIVE WRITERS.” (Hmmm, they must do their research! Or just send out their research-bots.)
Note: the letter I was sent was pull of spaces in between every other letter (eg: “Thank yo u f o r your interest in the po si t io n at our firm”) presumably to avoid Google checks. But in order to help both my Googling brethren who have the time to remove the spaces and those who don’t, I’m posting the letter twice.
