Today I received this very legitimate job offer, from what is clearly someone who is a serious player in the video game industry. At the very least they are going to be well known in the game industry soon.
“I came across your resume. I have clients that are very into gaming, and have loads of money. They are looking to invest in a company that produces online games. What they would like me to do is round up a small team of people who can put together one for them. This would basicly be like starting up any company. You would not make anything till the game has been made and the investors have decided its worthy of investment. But once that happens then you would become a partner with that company being that you are one of the founding members. A lot like most companies. So I am looking for people with your kind of skills that can demonstrate they can make this happen. We will have weekly meetings to go over our goals and log and discuss our progress. This will be a colabrative effort. Please email me back and let me know if you are interested.
To further demonstrate the sheer gravitas of this offer, it came from a Yahoo email address, which as we all know is a sign of a businessman who is heavily involved in the software industry.
