[ale] ATT email about some RIAA stuff



Just in the last week I've gotten three emails for what I think are fake 
jobs - real companies (Norfolk Southern, Aflac, Adecco) but sketchy 
premises.  I did apply for an NS job in December and the email I got 
looked similar to the acknowledgement email I'd gotten, but it wanted me 
to go to a non-NS site to do an "online assessment" so I sent a message 
to the HR help desk asking if this were legit.
