Idiotic Pyramid Scheme Peddlers
Just a quick one, I recently received an email from a pyramid scheme peddler, via Total Jobs. Whilst it seems fairly innocent at first glance, ALL my friends who have CV's up there, also have received this same email. Normally there would be no cause for comment except for the stupid actions of this mystery man Robert Strange. A simple Whois on the mfligroup.com reveals his home address, phone number, and personal email address. Now I just have to decide a suitable mischief to send his way, any suggestions?

From: MFLI Group
Date: 1 June 2010 18:08
Subject: Made For Life International Group
To: *******@*******.com

I have looked with interest at your CV on Total Jobs and decided that I would contact you.

I wondered whether you wanted to work for another company in a similar field to your previous employers or whether you may be open to a different type of opportunity in a different industry. Your mix of people skills and experience put you well placed to excel in our business and I want to meet with you to discuss the options available to you at this time.

My company is in Team Marketing and we major in the Health, Wellness and Lifestyle industry. At this time of uncertainty, due to the worldwide recession, it is nice to know that our parent company is continuing to go from strength to strength, with an increase of 20% worldwide in 2008 taking us to a turnover of $2.5 billion.

Due to our expansion throughout the UK, we are currently seeking key people around the country with the right attitude and attributes to work with us in Business and Marketing Development and, having read your CV, I am happy to arrange a meeting with you, to show you our business model.

I am meeting people at The Thistle Hotel, East Midlands Airport on Monday 7th June, between 5pm and 8pm. You have some of the skills and experience that we are looking for. You do not need to do any research prior to meeting me.

If you would like me to reserve some time for you please let me know as soon as possible.

Kind Regards

Robert Strange

This is his house, it's a bit wonky because it's on a steep hill.

Print it on to a t-shirt and wear it to the meeting.

There must be a B3tan somewhere who lives in the area.
Who could take a minor detour and get a pic of her leaving the house.

Scary clown
I recall a story not so long ago about a "Scary Clown" who, for a fee, would stalk your children for a week and then hit them with a custard pie. Can't easily find a link to the story, but sounds like a good idea if you have enough info.
