My mail box has no rest. Groups (terribly I hate them) always disturb me a lot. I used to get minimum 50 group mails. Oh! You may think I am one of the luckiest men in post modern synthetic world receiving least mails from Groups. It is my another title I don’t use my time to narrate on Group mail, I do surely, disturb you, when time comes.
Here the villain or hero is a mail dated 20th November 2010 from Mr. Bar Abdul Mukhtar, introducing himself as no designation of ROC OIL COMPANY LTD, Malaysia. If there is no designation, it means he is BOSS, simple logic). He sent a mail from his MSN id that I am the one of rare candidates from overseas, short listed for Oil Company. Mail itself gave me more details – he got my CV from on line. He liked it; required my honorable services to Malaysia also. I showed to my colleague hiding Company title (he is Keralite, might chances to search Company in Google and reach his PP copy to them). He innocently told me to show the ID. My underestimated mind wont allow me to pass it. He said – if it is from Company ID, there is a chance, other wise, your dreams may fall in smokes. Don’t curse me please, I begged him.
As per Mr. Bar's requirements, I sent details to his MSN and GMAIL id both from my workplace; I resent it again from my Note Book also while i reached at my home. I sent an SMS message to Mrs Aslam, inshallah you may get a call from me soon with a different international CODE. Poor, Mrs Aslam, she didn’t digest what I meant.
I couldn’t know how my next long 24 hours passed out from the whole dragging day. Every five minutes, I pressed my INBOX to refresh. I Started to learn the Geography of Malaysia and currency rate. One of my friends told me – Aslam, living cost is more than UAE. I warned him - dont teach me
My second-hand Coats and ties were sent to Dhobi same day, if I may not get time to dry wash.
Thursday’s sun arose as usual, but with a mail from Malaysian Oil Company Boss, Mr. Bar. There was a lenghty letter with enough information along with 5 page PDF file – we can call it as OFFER LETTER. Really it is made by a professional. Better to say what is not included in it to save my time. But some are - designation: Senior Field Supervisor. Salary: $ 29,000 monthly. 3 bed room villa. Air ticket – a bunch. Every 3 months pass with 30 days holidays. Eat, drink, and dance on holidays. But Mr. Bar, made a big mistake in offer letter quoting a phrase – TOYOTA Camry -2008 2.4G mode in on standby upon Employee’s arrival. Professionalism, we can agree; but over professionalism, we cant.
$29,000 ! Tazaahif 1175- our Iraqi PRO, Junaid uttered and took old calculator from me.
29,000 x 1175 = .........................................
I told him – Your calculator doesnt have that much capacity to multiply; use MS XL sheet please. He understood its meaning – showing his yellow colored teethes. A 20 ft container required to unload it in our Country – funny Junaid commented.
Quckkly my croaky mind worked; took me to Google search engine – our Mr. Bar Abdul Mukthar quoted badly in more than 100 links. Poor guy! I dont blame him; instead apprecite him. Cause, he didnt discourage any job seekers. Instead he offered all the eye catching job of SR. FIELD SUPERVISOR with & 29,000 monthly salary. Other packagings are all reamins same. (He might think - no candidates are qualfied for be supervised; let them superwise others) LInks are long and most them covered with cursed words of unemployed candidates.Why I dont know. Cheated (they highlight themselves) candidates wrote an 2/3 page essays; some scraped and copied as it is what Mr. Bar sent them. I went through most comments at a glimpse.
One scrap stroke me which is really funny – he is pure PACHA, from Lahore I Let me paste as it is not to loose its beauty –
i m Ali Abbas from Pakistan. I got email from your company. there was written i got a job in it as supervisor and i have to present there till 5 November and salary was 29000 us dollars have complaint that y did u send me this job offer and if it is fraud then please arrest that man who is using your company name.

No comments – Pakistani made me laugh a lot.
Sorry to say Mr. Bar is only eligible for SILVER medal; let me grand a GOLD medal to unknown Bhai Saab, Ali Abbas.
