I think you might need a slightly thicker marker pen!

You can easily see that guy's name. If I were you, I would probably take this off the site.

@ Raven - you hit the nail right on the head! Absolute brilliance.

@ Anonymous - name is now illegible. But the content of the letter isn't, and Raven makes a great point that this letter's probably been mailmerged and sent out to the entire city in its exact same form!

You guys have either got a high tolerance for BS...oh silly me - of course you have - you guys thrive on the stuff. Doh!

What's with the use of the word "both" in the paragraph about military experience? That doesn't look gramatically correct to me. Lack of attention to detail, poor pitchbook proofing skills. Not IB material.

@ Anonymour - good spot. A for effort but attention to detail of our applicant needs improvement.

@ Anonymous re whitehouse apartments. Check out this link for the development. You may very well have a point. Loaded, this chap may be, but not very banker like as he has chosen to live outside the SW3 postcode.

The white house is a shitty place to live - it's catered corporate apartments and has no class whatsoever. Overpriced too.

This guy is such a loser; his letter may get read but his dignity is straight out the window. Oh dear boys...
