There are scammers targetingthose who may have posted their resumes online to the various job portals and who are actively seeking new employment opportunities.
I had previously heard about this when another recruiting agency had posted a similar bulletin less than two weeks ago – however this time they decided to pretend to be me.
The following image depicts a sample of the generic email that these scammers are promoting for all their nefarious intent and purposes. I have also highlighted key parts of this email that you should pay special attention to which should more easily help you identify fake emails and spot any inconsistencies in their attempts to deceive you into giving up your personal information.

Intelligence (AI) is the talk of the world and it features prominently in
predictions for 2019 (see here and here) and recent surveys by consulting firms
and other observers of the tech scene. Here are the key findings:
Consumer adoption: “Smart speakers” lead the way to the AI-infused home of the future
speakers (e.g., Amazon Echo and Google Home) will become the fastest-growing
connected device category in history, with an installed base projected to
surpass 250 million units by the end of 2019. With sales of 164 million units
at an average selling price of $43 per unit, total smart speakers’ revenues
will reach $7 billion, up 63% from 2018. (Deloitte)
Enterprise adoption: Timid first steps
business executives say their companies have embedded at least one AI
capability in their business processes and just 21% say their organizations
have embedded AI in several parts of the business. 30% say they are piloting
20% of business executives say their companies will deploy AI across the business in 2019. (PwC)
Just a little light reading in case you wanted a DevOps refresh – “DefOps defined.
“DevOps is the combination of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools that increases an organization’s ability to deliver applications and services at high velocity: evolving and improving products at a faster pace than organizations using traditional software development and infrastructure management processes. This speed enables organizations to better serve their customers and compete more effectively in the market.
How DevOps Works
Under a DevOps model, development and operations teams are no longer “siloed.” Sometimes, these two teams are merged into a single team where the engineers work across the entire application lifecycle, from development and test to deployment to operations, and develop a range of skills not limited to a single function.
In some DevOps models, quality assurance and security teams may also become more tightly integrated with development and operations and throughout the application lifecycle. When security is the focus of everyone on a DevOps team, this is sometimes referred to as DevSecOps.
These teams use practices to automate processes that historically have been manual and slow. They use a technology stack and tooling which help them operate and evolve applications quickly and reliably. These tools also help engineers independently accomplish tasks (for example, deploying code or provisioning infrastructure) that normally would have required help from other teams, and this further increases a team’s velocity.
