I am looking for work too and that would irriate me to no end, esp cause I have applied for so many jobs I have lost track of some of them (I usually write it down in my planner or save the job ad so I will know what is going on if someone happens to contact me) Boo! Something will come along it is just a bad economy right now…we will prevail!

Oh wow, sorry this happened to you. ๐Ÿ™ My mother got the same kind of email this summer when she was looking for part time work. I think they even went as far as requesting her SS# when replying to they could run her credit. The nerve of some people..ugh.

I am sorry…I really get annoyed at that stuff. When I was looking for work I used to get them all the time. Keep your head up something will come up soon.

I had a similar experience only it was with apartments. That really sucks and it drives me nuts!

Oh wow, I’ve been looking too but haven’t come across anything like that thankfully. It’s a good thing you looked into it before responding! I know how annoying it can be but something will come through soon!
