That comes complete of a nice BP logo in the top left corner. Well, I've gone through the real BP recruitment process, and it's not like that. Especially, the yahoo.co.uk e-mail address should be a giveaway. Applications should instead be submitted online at this address only; there is no other legit way.

What may happen to those sending their resume to the fake BP, I don't know. But I can speculate that at least their personal information will be used to target them with all sorts of spam. In the worst case, their identity may be stolen. So beware. If I am wrong, please serve me a succulent roast crow.

By the way, forging communications in this fashin may very well be a legal offense. But I'm sure BP can take care of its own legal affairs by itself.
