|Yeah -- straight to Sing-Sing.|
No enrollment fee. The average monthly salary is $1500.
Job Duties and responsibilities:
- Must be able to work on flexible schedules - the position is home-based
- Receive and mail incoming parcels. Auditing incoming packages for damages.
- Complete all paperwork in a timely and accurate manner.
All that's required is to receive packages, then send the contents to their final destinations. An idiot could do it. Or rather, only an idiot, because this scam has something to do with stolen credit cards. (You can read a brief summary here.)
Now, if you want a real job, Saudi Arabia is the place to go. The London Telegraph reports:
Saudi Arabia is advertising for eight new executioners, recruiting extra staff to carry out an increasing number of death sentences, usually done by public beheading.
No special qualifications are needed for the jobs whose main role is "executing a judgement of death" but also involve performing amputations on those convicted of lesser offences, the advert, posted on the civil service jobs portal, said.
|Definitely not their brand of choice.|
Our Saudi friends have executed 85 people so far this year, so this is definitely a growth industry. If they keep it up, at this rate there should be 117 more unlucky folks at the wrong end of a Wilkinson's blade by New Year's Eve. (At least they won't have to watch Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin ring in 2016.)
An entry-level position, however, has its drawbacks:
A downloadable PDF application form for the executioner jobs, available on the website carrying Monday's date, said the jobs were classified as "religious functionaries" and that they would be at the lower end of the civil service pay scale.
|In case you were worried.|
The Saudis' law-and-order mindset would probably go over well in certain areas of the U.S. In the last decade, Texas, for instance, has executed 521 people, many of whom were actually guilty of the crimes they were convicted of.
On average, that's still less than Saudi Arabia's output, which spiked dramatically this year due to the hiring of new judges to speed up the executions. This is probably one time that the Lone Star state would go along with judicial overreach. The Supreme Court under President Rick Perry would look mighty interesting.
