    This was the first part of a message from someone who had contacted me saying they heard I was looking for a content writer and seo/smm VA. They mentioned they were a Certified Google yadda yadda yadda ( these cost $15-20 on forums to buy ) then went on to list their 'expertise' as;

    It's entirely possible that the applicant worked for the courts and has expertise in writs.

    Definition of writ
    1 : something written…
    2a : a formal written document…

    Well at least he gave you an accurate first impression. Then there are people who put together a competent sales pitch and follow it up with a pile of nonsense when it's time to deliver on the actual assignment. That's always a nice surprise.
