From The Desk OF: Jamie Dimon C.E.OAnyone reading through this email will immediately recognize it as a scam. I never cease to be amazed that people actually fall for these cons. There are plenty of give-aways in the email based on the way language is used that it is certain not written by an American, most likely someone who speaks English as a second language. Never ever respond to any emails or open any attachments in emails from people you don't know or that look suspicious. I'm certain that Jamie Dimon would never contact me personally (though I am always open for a high paying job at JPM), and definitely not from email address email@example.com.
