And it's surely got to be genuine seeing as it's from (copyright) HQ Management, S.A.! :-)
Can't wait to join the stampede to get job ref:4509! :-)
There will no doubt be a queue of gullible applicants at Gilwell Park on Monday morning. It is a problem with these cons though, if they generate names of senders at random every so often they hit on one that might appear real.
Since when have the SA been paying out excellent incomes to people!!? I haven't had a pay rise in years and my excellent income from scouting is a very big round number! :-)
Most of us are similar salaries with the company care, bonuses and benefits though it does add up to a sizeable sum! <VBG>
The other part of me which isn't chuckling is the part that's getting pissed off with loony's like the above sending this crap hoping that I'm going to hand over all my personal banking details. Am I an idiot? (Don't answer that one, seriously!)
Handing over your Banking details won't help them, that is just the first stage to milking you once they have you hooked.
And as for the evil b'stard that sent me a virus the other week in an e-mail with an important attachement under the guise of an important Explorer message (very sneaky, well written, and apparently targetted at me) which fooled my better half and wiped out everything when she inadvertently downloaded it, well that person's life isn't going to be worth living if I ever catch up with them. (Defence systems now back in place so if the plonker who sent it is reading this then don't waste your effort trying it again.)
Are you sure that it was actually targeted at you? Most of the virus writers don't waste their time aiming at one person although they do everything that they can to make it appear as if it is for you as they want you to open it.
Interesting. Must have got your address from a Scouting directory somewhere.
Do you think they looked up GAGS? Doubt it somehow.
I had an e-mail yesterday which managed to fool me (and I consider myself fairly computer-savvy). It was a fake paypal sales receipt for $1,770, made me think that I'd been frauded somehow. Luckily no charge when I logged onto paypal.com (not clicking any of the links contained in the e-mail, of course).They will try anything and whilst they are getting away with it and being let off when they are caught there really isn't that much of a disincentive to stop them.
On the pay front, as a Leader I got a 100% increase this year. Can't beat that.That must have been the standard then as I had the same, rather similar to last year and the year before.
