A West Virginia man is accused of an identity-theft scam where he encouraged people online to send job applications (and their personal information) to him so they could be considered for government jobs in West Virginia, police say. As part of his alleged ruse, he hired a Chicago man to mail letters to the applicants -- letters that were apparently from the governor himself.
Only something wasn't quite right:
It lacked the governor's seal and was riddled with misspellings and grammatical errors.
"It's nice to have you as an employee of West Virginia," the letter said. "Your super (boss) Matt talk a lot of thangs about you. I hope you stay with us a long time. If you got ? please ask Matt."
