Applying for job ended in a load of spam

Over the past few weeks in between the jobs keeping me ticking over (though this week was quite fun as tandem skydive instructors needed somebody to practice with and that somebody was me). I've been applying for jobs, with BUPA, Cooperative, RBS amongst others.

I send an application in and pretty much 2 hours later get a denied email back (I prefer to write tbh). Then I suddenly get a whole load of spam post AND emails regarding products from this company. Automatically filled in with the salary I put on my CV. I played with it a bit and started applying for jobs with fake CVs for 40-100K jobs and exactly the same happened. I got a ton of spam in the purposefully made up email account AND junk mail with offers of credit cards and loans which were semi filled in with this fake identity.

Has anybody else experienced this? Its pretty low for companies to stoop down to this level me thinks.

Heh and they are shooting them selves in the foot tbh, any company which overtly advertises and spams me will never get my business.

That's really alarming!We better understand how to avoid such fraud.Our economy is affected by that.A study published Tuesday by the United States Census Bureau shows that progressively Americans are losing their battle to remain profitable in an economic climate that neglects to recover. According to the report, there are more Americans living under the poverty line than ever in the 52-year history of the Census Bureau records. Resource for this article: Personal Finance
