How Do You Think They Intended To Use the Word Intercourse?

Today I opened my email and was delighted to see that I had a response from my resume posted on CareerBuilder.  Finally!  Woo-hoo.  Upon close inspection of the email I found I had some lingering questions regarding the possibility to work out of the home so I sent a response email.  I am unsure if I will receive a reply to my inquiry.  I shall keep you posted.  Below is our correspondence.  I have highlighted that area of concern in the original email.  As the email did not have a signature, I sent the correspondence to the name of the person who sent the email. Have a Blessed Day!  *Note: I included screen shots as to verify the validity of this post.

Here is my reply:


Dear Priscilla:
In response to your email of April 23, 2010 I am bit concerned that this may not be a legitimate offer. Please reply to this email so I may verify the validity of your offer. As for the required skills, I have been told I am very adept with intercourse in many different manners including both written and verbal.  Whenever I am away from home I engage in verbal intercourse with my husband via telephone.  Sometimes we communicate in that manner via email.  Is this the skill you are looking for?  If so, I would be very interested if it involves my husband.  If not, then I am not interested in having verbal or written intercourse with anyone else.  I made a vow when I got married to be true to one person. Engaging in intercourse with others appears to void this arrangement.


If your email refers to verbal and written skills pertaining to office correspondence then I do believe I am interested.  Please let me know in which manner you are referencing intercourse.  I do not have any interest in becoming one of those phone operators on a 1-976 phone number even if it is a home based business.
Regards,
Nicole

  8. I received that email today also. Would love to know if anyone hears anything about this company. Nikki, your response was so funny. Thanks for cracking me up this morning!

  9. So I also received the same email, responded, and set up an account with them. They ask that you make money transfers to clients for them, using your own bank account. I'm to curious as to why the website seems legit but no one seems to be able to find anything out about them, so I've set up a bank account to try doing a transfer for them and see what happens. If its a scam, they stand to gain nothing as there is no money in the account and they have no link to personal info (no cc, no ssn). I'll let you know what happens...

  10. Another bullshit waste of time from idiots in Europe.

  11. I received an email from this source about a month ago and reported it to CareerBuilder as a potential scam due to the fact that they require respondents to open a business or personal bank account in order to transfer funds for them. I guess CareerBuilder didn't see due cause to investigate it because I received the most recent version of their offer a few days ago. I have not responded to "Sirius BR" in any way and have no intention of doing so.

  12. Anyone receiving email from Sirius BR LLC should go to Monster.com's page on "Money-Laundering and Re-shipping Scams". You could be legally liable for laundering stolen money, or you could be charged by your bank for depositing their "rubber" paychecks or just have your entire bank account wiped out.
