I received a strange email message from the HR Team of Orange Armenia yesterday, which claimed, that I have applied to Orange Armenia for a job and they have put my CV in their database. I responded by saying, that I’ve never applied to Orange Armenia for a job and demanded them to delete the corresponding record in their database, because otherwise I would consider it a violation of my privacy.

Got a very nice response today, revealing, that there was no CV and no database involved, and that the Orange HR spam actually affected a lot of other people:
“First of all sorry for inconvenience regarding “application thank you” mail received by you from Orange Armenia.
The purpose of HR mail is to receive CVs from candidates interested to work in Orange Armenia and system automatically replies to all mails. Your mail address is in contacts(a) epfound.am contacts group from which we received mail and system react accordingly.
So kindly disregard the mail received.
Once again sorry for inconvenience wish you every success and happy holidays.”
Looks like we have to blame Eurasia Partnership Foundation (www.epfound.am) for the mistake.
