Job offer cancelled after applicant sends nude selfie

 An Illinois job applicant texted his way out of an offered position when he accidentally sent the human resources manager a nude selfie, police said.
Elmhurst police said the human resources manager at a St. Charles company contacted authorities Aug. 14 to report receiving two nude pictures via text messageAug. 11 and 13 from a man who had been offered a position with the company.
"There was a conditional offer of employment made to this particular applicant," Elmhurst Police
Chief Michael Ruth told the Chicago Tribune. "He texted the HR director and sent a nude photo of himself."
Ruth said the company learned the identity of the sender when he later used the same phone number for a follow-up call.
Police said the man who sent the pictures told investigators the nude selfies were sent accidentally.
"[Police] contacted the offender who admitted to sending the photographs, explaining they were actually meant for another individual and were sent to the victim in error," the police report of the incident states. "[Police] advised the offender to cease any contact with the victim."
The victim decided not to press charges, but police said the man's actions were not free from consequences.
"My understanding is they've rescinded the offer of employment," Ruth said.
