Anyone else get the Aerostich email?
« on: June 20, 2017, 09:53:20 PM »
I saw an odd email pop up in my inbox today:


Dear Riders, Supporters and Friends,
I’m writing you today about an opportunity to work with us -- but not as a customer.
Over the last two years I've privately contacted a few of our best long-term customers, asking if they’d be interested in working with Aerostich in confidential financial areas. There were several positive responses, and I learned a lot from the experience, including the fact that reaching out randomly to potentially interested individuals is inefficient.
After thinking about the best way to find interested persons I’ve decided to just write everyone in our files and attach a short information-gathering survey.
If you would like to learn more about this opportunity, please click here, to participate in this short survey. You’ll be asked to provide a little information about yourself, and to download and sign a confidential information non-disclosure form. After you return the completed agreement I’ll contact you for a conversation about this opportunity.
Please note that Aerostich is not for sale, I am not looking to retire, and this isn’t an offer to sell equity or securities. Over the past thirty three years Aerostich has been profitable enough to partly self-finance its growth, but we have always also worked with a bank lender.
We continue to hold ideas about rider’s gear, motorcycling’s future, and business practices which are not common. I'd like to now find a few more persons interested in helping us move our objectives ahead a little faster.
This email was sent from an unattended mailbox. Only completed surveys will receive personal replies.
Sincerely,
Andy

[I removed a P.S. line because it contained a solicitation to sign up for Aerostich's catalog/email list, which I felt may be a violation of forum rules]


Looks like there could be an opportunity for those who know finance and wouldn't mind a job in Duluth, MN.

Sounds pretty cool, and by cool I mean brrr!  That place can get cold!

Seriously though, it could be on the opportunity for someone with that interest. I have to say, it's a very strange way to solicit new employees, help, or whatever it is he's looking for. He's basically saying, "I need help with something but I won't say what it is, take the survey and find out more!"  Feels a little wierd, but it's his business, so I guess it's his prerogative.

I'm pretty sure those survey links are personalised so it tracks who's responding to the solicitation.
That is, if someone on here responds to the survey by following the links in that message, it's going to cross-reference in their database to Bajakirch.

Maybe I'll get a recruiting fee?!


Yeah, a bit odd, but that describes most of his business model.


I was tempted to click the link, just to see what the survey was all about, but I've been zapped by one too many phishing attempts to do feel totally comfortable doing so.
