Default "Ransoming" Workers?

A contact on LinkedIn show us this letter that he received.





I can't see how this juvenile prank could help any recruit be hired.

Could be a prank. Could be an unprofessional individual. Or it could be an outright scammer. Something about it reads like broken English, although it's far from the worst that I've seen.

That's not broken English, it's just mixed with an overabundance of buzzwords.

Sounds like an attempt at "edgy marketing", trying to be ironic or funny in an attempt to be noticed. I'm sure the "hostage" situation is metaphorical, not literal.

Any way you slice it, though, it's in poor taste and pretty unprofessional.

For most of us, it's a straight-to-spam/delete-and-block response. However, since we are where we are... we know that there's SOMEONE who thinks this is the KEWLEST THING EVAR! and wants to know more. (TAKE MY MONEY!)
