“Reserve Bank of Scotland": From the first team to the bench
I got an interesting solicitation this week from the Reserve Bank of Scotland.
“Reserve Bank of Scotland is presently recruiting international employee’s that can work in the esteemed bank,” it said. Positions were vacant, it said, in various areas.
Several things made me suspicious that it was not genuine, including the poor grammar in the email, the actual possibility that any bank was looking to hire and the fact that I had never heard of the Reserve Bank of Scotland. Had the UK’s northern outpost been granted independence over the Christmas period I wondered? Or, as was more likely, had the Royal Bank of Scotland accepted it was no longer a first-team player and been shown to the substitutes’ bench? Naturally, I didn’t reply, but I did forward it on to several muckers at RBS. If anyone else is interested, I can provide them with the contact details.
