A suburban Chicago manufacturing company apparently rescinded its job offer to a man who unintentionally sent two naked photos of himself to the director of human resources, authorities say.
The 23-year-old Aurora man sent the photos from his cellphone on Aug. 11 at 11:41 p.m., according to Elmhurst Police Chief Michael Ruth.
Authorities say the HR manager contacted police after receiving two naked selfies between August 11 and August 13, only realizing the sender was the job applicant when he made a followup call the next morning.
According to the police report, officers then “contacted the offender who admitted to sending the photographs, explaining they were actually meant for another individual and were sent to the victim in error.”
Officers subsequently advised the sexter to cease all contact with the sextee.
At first they didn’t realise who the pictures were from but when the man rung the company, bosses recognised the number on caller ID and realised who had sent them the selfies.
The HR manager then called the police on the company’s new hiring.
Chief Michael Ruth told the Chicago Tribune : “There was a conditional offer of employment made to this particular applicant.
“He texted the HR director and sent a nude photo of himself.”
Ruth said he believes the company rescinded its offer to the man, who was told he could not have any further contact with the HR director.
No arrest was made, Ruth said.
“There was a conditional offer of employment made to this particular applicant,” Elmhurst Police Chief Michael Ruth told the Tribune. “My understanding is they’ve rescinded the offer.”
