A New Job Offer?

This is a new one, from my Intlxpatr e-mail, from my unknown friend Hayley Ashcroft:

How are you? I just returned from my oversea trip back to Scotland.I hope your not surprised that I contacted you in this manner.Never mind,it is quite necessary to introduce myself ,I am Miss Ascroft Aisha Abdullah,I work with Marathon Oil Ltd UK as assistant senior supervisor.

It might interest you to know that I have Asian blood, my dad came from Riyadh in Saudi Arabia and my mom from Surabaya in Indonesia ,my both parents lived in UK,unfortunately I lost my dad when I was still in college, and that was the reason why I had no opportunity of knowing my father’s relatives but it is ok. It is my heart desire to take vacation leave from our company and visit Asia for the first time .It is no longer a news that Asia is developing so fast and catching up with developed countries with a lot of tourist attraction centers,it gives me so much joy because I want to witness it and be part of it.

I do not mean to inconvenience you ,I do not want to employ a tourist guide when you are there.I will appreciate it if you can spare your time to welcome and accompany me,never mind I will take care of the expenses. Could you please tell me little about yourself and let me know the nearest airport to you?

I await for your reply

My Regards

Pardon my cynicism, but nothin baby, it ain’t free. You want to pay all the expenses? LLLLOOOLLLL!

  1. Sometimes I have difficulties imagining the amount of spam email you get!!! You seem to be a spam magnet where you get to have the most innovative ones!! I’ve replied to too many of them and never heard back from them, I’m amused and want to see how far the scam creativity can go 🙂
