Satire? Or Identity Theft?

I found this ad on boise.craiglist.org:

CEO for Web Development Startup (Boise)

Exciting opportunity for a go-getter CEO type. Come join our team of web developers and lead us to the next facebook.


As we are just a startup, you would be expected to work long hours for equity only. (But when we make it big-time your compensation could increase to $12/hour with the possibility of another increase after 6 months).

You must possess outstanding CEO'ing skills. Please send us your resume, business contacts, salary history, personal information, as well as a list of at least 3 companies that you have taken from nothing to stardom. 

We, of course, will remain completely anonymous and will not divulge our company, website, email, or any other identifying information. However you must tell us everything about yourself or we won't even consider you.

* Business degree required.
* Demonstrated, relevant experience will be considered in lieu of of MBA.


  • Location: Boise
  • Compensation: Equity at first, then $12/hr with possiblity of raise after 6 months.
  • Principals only. Recruiters, please don't contact this job poster.

If that's not satire, its pretty hilarious Nigerian cut and paste work.

The sad thing is the likely large number of suckers who will respond to such an ad!
