Same spam-firm (different person) today wants to present me with two candidates who have "excellent" written communication skills, I should contact him if either "peaks" my interest.

No, despite your credibility as an evaluator of written communication, they do not.

I got a company's recruiters (mostly a guy but occasionally another girl) calling me every few weeks since I found them online in autumn 2015. The guy kept calling and emailing me for several positions up to 6 figure offers even when I was entry level before. Each time he pretended that he never talked to me before until I told him so. I stopped picking up his call and replying to his email but he still kept spamming me. What do you do with such situation?

Block his number and use google spam filters.

Just got an email at work from a recruiter with SC International saying he represents an ACAS and was wondering if we had any openings for him. That's a new one for me.

Got sent a message a couple days ago. The recruiter got their own name wrong in the message, "Hi I'm X..." with obviously the wrong gender and ethnicity too. Copy pasted from a coworker.

It was through LinkedIn so I could see their picture. I could also see the picture of the coworker they took the message from.

I have gotten one that said

Hi Xyz,

Hi abc,


So they put my name, but forgot to delete the person they just spammed a minute earlier.

I'm not on this one, but there's another spammy recruiter that I'd like to not hear from again.
