Yeah, Sounds like one side love story for source code to me. lol
It might be for real. “But working for NSA as freelancer?” It looks more like a luck than a job.
In this age its very hard to trust anyone. Anyone claims to whatever they want to be. It might be real but then who knows?
In that case, I really appreciate IRS. Back then in 2009 when I used to call them they used to say their employee Id. But now I want to verify identity of the employee online on their own Federal Government Website.
At least, I can avoid some wrong guys there to some extent if not completely.
