  1. I do not know the circumstances that has led you to this page, but please be aware, this is a website that publishes Emails that arrive at a honeypot address. We can be certain that any Email that we publish has been sent as spam. Most of them will be from someone hoping to scam a victim.

    For example, the Email above has been sent to hundreds, if not thousands of people. Note the lack of any personal details “Dear applicant”. Do not be fooled, the person above has not received your application, and has no job to offer you. I do not know what they are hoping to achieve, but you can be sure you will lose out.
