A 23-year-old Illinois man accidentally sent naked selfies to an HR manager for a company he applied for a position with, the Chicago Tribune reports.
He did not get the job.
The company offered a position to the man, who then proceeded to the female HR employee two naked photos of himself via text message.
She called the cops.
What she didn’t know was who sent them … until the applicant followed up with her regarding his offer from the same mobile phone number.
Only then did the HR manager realize he was the man in the nude images as well … and the company retracted his offer of employment.
Police say the applicant explained to them that the photos were sent by accident; he is unlikely to face any legal ramifications for the act.
The Tribune, citing law enforcement sources, say errant naked selfies fired off by mistake are becoming a bigger issue in recent times.
"We’re seeing it much more often now with our young people sending inappropriate photos of themselves,” one police officer said.
“They think that they’re sharing it with someone else that they know and the next thing you know it takes on a life of its own."
