Why does this Italian "Wanted" sign for Mafia boss Bernardo Provenzano have the word WANTED printed in English, especially when the rest of the sign is in Italian?

If you are going to order your resume online, just stop for a minute and check the reviews that http://topresumewriting.blogspot.com/ has prepared for us not to be fooled. They listed the top companies we really could trust and order our CVs from. Others could appear to be cheaters.
