Incredible Coca-Cola Job Offer To Everyone Probably Not Legitimate

  desperate times

It ain't coca cola, it's rice.With more than 150,000 people losing their jobs every week in the United States and millions more being laid off around the world, the scams are getting ridiculous. Take this message from “hr@coca-cola.com,” which we just received: Coca-Cola is hiring all over the world, full-time positions, great pay and benefits, etc. Just fill out the attached form with all your personal information!

Complete with a bunch of pilfered Coca-Cola graphics touting various global initiatives and partners, the scheme basically promises you a life of secure work and great pay and health care and two months of paid vacation — you know, the impossible:

We are hiring!
Are you out of job?
Your current job isn’t paying enough?
You don’t have proper eductaion for high positions?

At Coca Cola everything is possible! We have the budget to hire anyone from any country where our company is present. All you need to do is fill out the form we have attached and get ready to bring your career to the next level and triple your current salary!

Our company offers excellent benefits such as 60 days paid vacation, company car, health insurance for you and for your family, option to work from home and friendly work environment.

We have open positions in Sales, Marketing, Information Technology, Accounting, Logistics, Engineering, Quality Assurance and much more.

None of the positions require any kind of education or work experience!

See, we don’t need that socialist Barack Obama’s fancy “health care” and “education” and “green jobs” and whatever! The corn-syrup water will save the planet.

(Note to sad gullible people who come across this post by searching MSN for “Coca Cola hiring”: The email in question is a scam, and the Russian/Nigerian criminals behind it just want your personal information so they can try to use your identity to get credit cards — which would be a pretty good scheme if credit cards were still available to desperate jobless people.)

    What about my Russian internet girlfriend that needs $300 dollars so she can get a visa to visit me? That’s still legit, right?

  2. dougbob

    it’s not funny for those of us actually looking for work. neither is the fact that up to 50% of the jobs being offered over the inner tubes are not really jobs. maybe somebody from the MSM should look into this…but they are all being laid off, too.

    How is the Nigerian scam business these days? Good, I hope. We do not have the money for a Nigerian Scam Industry Bailout.

  4. Serolf Divad

    What… you mean the $8,000,000.00 signing bonus they promised me for planning their Nigerian marketing strategy isn’t real?

    “None of the positions require any kind of education or work experience!”

    I think I saw that on FEMA’s Website a few years back.

  6. bitchincamaro

    I’ve already sent them my SS# and bank account #’s. Is there an “undo” button for the intertubes?

    She e-mailed you naked pictures of herself, right? So how can it be a scam? Pictures don’t lie.

    [re=253451]dougbob[/re]: Several years ago I was dumb enough to sign up with Career Builder, and of course all I got were scam emails from them. They don’t even bother to screen the people who want to use THEIR email lists to make sure they are at least quasi-legit. Right now, if anyone offers you a job, assume it’s a scam. (This excludes being offered $20 to give a blow job.)

  9. AngryBlakGuy

    …the Russian and Nigerians are collaborating now?! Geez, I can only imagine what the grammar looks like!

  10. SayItWithWookies

    How disappointing. Next you’ll be telling me that I can’t lose 30 pounds in ten days, that a special diet of garlic, vinegar and apricots won’t cure cancer, and that Shane won’t, in fact, come back. Sigh.

  11. NoWireHangers

    None of the positions require any kind of education or work experience!

    Well, that was true of the White House from 2001-2008

  12. tacdab

    Dudes, it’s not Russia or Nigeria. It’s Cheney’s Legal Defense Fund (formerly a Swiss foundation, then Antiguan, now a dinghy floating off the Liberian coast).

  13. Campbell Brown

    No education or work experiance needed, huh? I heard Joe the Plumber was looking for work after his book tour winds down.

  14. ToeCramps

    I drink Coca Cola at home already! They pay for that? Would that be considered Palinesque per diem? Also.

    Ok, Joe The Daisy Chain, why aren’t you at CPAC? Scammers/Gypsys/Grifters people need jobs, money, & love too!

    Hey, wait a sec – you mean this letter I got isn’t legit? I has a sad now. What will my friends on 419Eater.com think of me now?

    TREAT VERY CONFIDENTIAL URGENT RESPONSES!!!
    From: mariam kabore – mrs.mariam_kabore@yahoo.com

    From The Desk Of Mariam Kabore .The Head Of File Department,African Development Bank A.D.BOuagadougou Burkina-Faso West Africa.PLANE CRASH WEB SITE…http://news.bbc.co.uk/1hi/world/europe/859479.stm

    (“REMITTANCE OF $15 MILLION U.S.A DOLLARS CONFIDENTIAL IS THE CASE”)Compliment Of The Season, On a very good day. I am (Mariam Kabore ),the Head of file Department in African developent bank (ADB).I got your contact from Yahoo tourist search.When i was searching for a foreign partner i assured of your capability and reliability to champion this businees opportunity when i prayed to God or Allah about you.In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $ 15 million U.S.A dollars ( fifteen million U.S.A dollars) . In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in (Monday 31st July 2002) in a plane crash. Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines, but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I and one official in my department now decided to make this businness proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don’t want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill. The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclamed after five years, the money will be transfered into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner, and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. We agree that 30 % of this money will be for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10 % will be set aside for expenses incured during the business and 60 % would be for me and my woman colleague. There after i will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated. Therefore to enable the immediate trnansfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relations or next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where the money will be remitted. Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for thetransfer. Your’s faithfully, Mariam Kabore

    POST SCRITUM:You have to keep everything secret as to enable the transfer to move very smoothly in to the account you will prove to the bank.As you finished reading this letter call me immediately so that we discuss very well over this business.

    If at Coca-Cola everything is possible then please tell me why the Coke bottle didn’t magically turn into Jessica Biel and how much lube I’m going to need to extract myself. It burns!

    “When i was searching for a foreign partner i assured of your capability and reliability to champion this businees opportunity when i prayed to God or Allah about you”

    Are you sure this wasn’t from Bernie Madoff?

  20. Lascauxcaveman

    Coca Cola is moving its HQ from Atlanta to Lagos. I hear the top execs are behind it because Atlanta is getting so “negrofied” these days.

  21. DangerousLiberal

    Actually, this is just a clever way to cull the herd–if you fall for this scam, you get a Loser tatoo on your forehead, and you do, sort of, work with Coca Cola–at a neighborhood fast food emporium of your choice.

    [re=253511]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: If the bastards would get off their asses and lose some weight they could actually fit onto the plane to their new jawb, because working from home is not an option, as Mississippi does not yet have the internet.

  23. AngryBlakGuy

    [re=253505]Lascauxcaveman[/re]: …as someone who has visited and has family in Nigeria, I wouldn’t drink anything bottled in Nigeria! Unless you are on a strict melamine and botulism diet.

    [re=253492]President Beeblebrox[/re]: Dude, that email was supposed to be kept confidential. Guess you just fucked up your chance at 30% of the abandoned $15M.

    [re=253530]jon c[/re]: Well, I wrote back and some guy named BARRISTER FRANKLIN NGOMBO said it was OK to get my friends involved as long as they were willing to keep things secret too. Also something about paying $10,000 for special solvent to wash some black ink off of my money. He even sent pictures of the money to show that it was waiting for me in Lagos. Also.

  31. teebob2000

    It’s worth a try, isn’t it?? I mean, the $2000 application fee Coke charges seem reasonable to net you a plum job!

    I’ll let you know how it works out for me. Suckas!

  32. Gallowglass
