What's probably the worst thing you could text a human resources manager? A 23-year-old Aurora man found out the hard way when he sent naked selfies to the HR manager of his potential employer, the Tribune reported.

The manager received two naked pictures from the applicant via text between Aug. 11 and 13 and she reported the incident to Elmhurst Police, police told the Tribune. The St. Charles-based company had offered the sender a job earlier in August.

The sender claims that it was a mistake and the nude photos were meant for someone else. Unfortunately, he still lost his job offer.

The victim, who lives in Elmhurst, did not pursue criminal charges against the sender. But Elmhurst police still want to remind the public that this is a cautionary tale.

"We're seeing it much more often now with our young people sending inappropriate photos of themselves," Elmhurst Police Chief Michael Ruth told the Tribune. "They're sharing it with someone else and the next thing you know it takes on a life of its own."
