I suppose you’d like to hear the details.
Well, I don’t have many details. For that reason, I haven’t accepted the offer yet. The details I do have are a bit confusing. Maybe someone can help me figure them out.
Here is the offer:
Work With Us to Earn 10% Payment Income. For more details please contact us. Also note that your Area of Specialization is of no reference as regards being our Representative. Been experienced in this field is also a credit to you.
Please be mindful that the job you are doing is 100% Legal. Further Details will be given.
Thanks in advance,
First of all, it’s comforting to know that the job is 100% legal. Even a job that’s 90% or 95% legal leaves some room for worry. That much I’ve figured out for myself.
But what does “earn 10% payment income” mean? Ten percent of something could be a lot, or it could be very little. I just don’t know.
“Been experienced in this field” is also a tricky phrase. I think this is either a typo or a language issue. The writer of the offer is none other than Huang Tianwen of Sinosteel. Mr. Huang is Chinese, and it’s understandable that he might have some difficulties in composing an email that will be read by an American potential employee. I think Mr. Huang just needs a little help from the Sinosteel HR department.
I just wonder how Mr. Huang found out about my area of specialization. I don’t recall submitting a resume to Sinosteel or even filling out an online questionnaire. Perhaps someone told him about me, or forwarded a resume that I submitted somewhere else. Who knows?
I’m just gratified to know that such a large international corporation and its chief thought enough of me to contact me and offer 10% payment income.
I just wonder why they needed my bank account and social security numbers.
