I received this curious e-mail (just noticed it, I haven't logged in a while), and wrote it off as spam. But after googling it, it seems people have received similar unsolicited e-mails from google (search
Hello from Google for more examples.) While I realize this is probably off-topic, I was curious if anyone has received a similar e-mail, especially since this one mentions my StackOverflow account.
The person finally replied:
No problem, thanks for getting back to me and I'm glad to have amused you :)
Apologies for the error in contacting you, as I mentioned I found your details on StackOverflow and saw that were a top user of C++ so thought it would be worth dropping you an email to find out a bit more about your experience.
If you are interested in hearing about opportunities at Google (perhaps in other areas!) then feel free to send me your resume and I can forward to the relevant colleague.
