[Scan of newspaper job-seeker advert]A JOB-SEEKING NEWSPAPER CLASSIFIED AD FROM A DRUG BARON?

I was recently sent this scan of a Canadian newspaper — click on the picture to enlarge or read for yourself!

“Having successfully completed a ten year sentence, incident-free, for importing 75 tons of marijuana into the United States, I am now seeking a legal and legitimate means to support myself and my family.

“Business Experience – Owned and operated a successful fishing business – multi-vessel, one airplane, one island and processing facility. Simultaneously owned and operated a fleet of tractor-trailer trucks conducting business in the western United States. During this time I also co-owned and participated in the executive level management of 120 people worldwide in a successful pot smuggling venture with revenues in excess of US$100 million annually. I took responsibility for my own actions, and received a ten year sentence in the United States while others walked free for their cooperation.

“Attributes – I am an expert in all levels of security; I have extensive computer skills, am personable, outgoing, well-educated, reliable, clean and sober. I have spoken in schools over the past ten years on “the consequences of choice”, and received public recognition from the RCMP for community service. I am well-traveled and speak English, French and Spanish. References available from friends, family, the U.S. District Attorney, etc.

“Please direct replies to
Box 375, National Post, Classified,
1450 Don Mills, ON, M3B 3R5.”

My goodness! For one thing, this must have cost a lot of money. One has to wonder if this ad brought success, the person is clearly overqualified for most types of jobs, and too risky for others. It’s a crazy world right enough!
