|+5 Pay for job training ( wireclass ) ( 908 372 3856) |
I had a message on my voice mail from this number (908) 372-3856. The call was made during daytime, so nothing odd there. However Sara\'s accent (foreign) and grammar (incorrect) seemed odd.
Later in the day I got a call from her again, I received it this time. She started telling me about this job and asked me if I\'d be okay with relocation. When I said no she said that wasn\'t a problem and they had business where I lived.
To cut it short she said that they could not hire me without training because I had no experience. And then some storied about US laws and contracts they couldn\'t sign. She told me I had to pay $700 for a training and it would be refunded with the first salary. Major scam alert. Companies that want train you can do so after hiring you, it\'s called on the job training.
She later sent me an email on the email address that\'s on my resume. The email has the $700 story too. I\'m not sure where she got my resume from, because I\'ve been posting it on a lot of online jobsites. Sorry, can\'t help you there.
Couldn\'t find anything about this on the internet, so I\'m guessing they\'re new.
Stay safe. And don\'t let anybody take your money.

Got a call on a Tuesday about an immediate job opening with a company called wireclass, a man called Snehasish Dutta asked me what kind of field I wanted to work in. After saying that I wanted Environmental Science or Management, the man then talked about two jobs, one called Retail Analyst and another being Environmental Research Analyst. I had to ask him to repeat himself a few times because his accent was very unclear and probably Indian. I asked for written information in an email and received it that night, and said they would call me back two days later. However, they didn't call, and I had to call the next two days to get a reply. By the time I did, they said they needed me to finalise my registration for training with a $700 deposit, after some pressuring by me they said I could pay 50% up front and pay the rest three weeks into the training period - before the training ended. I kept asking them exactly what company I would be working for and where they got my information and they dodged the question repeatedly, instead assuring me that I wouldn't have to worry about receiving a job and that my $700 would be refunded once I got my first salary. Not addressing whether I would even have a job by that point. After some pressure from me again they sent me a few profiles on Linked In with their past employees; and while this seemed legit initially, there was still no hard evidence or written guarantee that I would be employed after the training. They insisted that it was not possible to divulge the exact client I would be working for, despite my repeated attempts. I also tried to negotiate the $700 fee due after I had worked with paid work with the client they were talking about for a month, but they dodged that request and kept insisting that I didn't need to worry about it. They requested me to immediately register and pay the amount, and I had to negotiate to get half an hour to consider the information. The email they sent me beforehand also said they would ask about my background, but that never happened. After talking to my friend and dad, they both felt it sounded fishy and my dad gave me a few select questions to ask them the next time I talked to them; such as exact statistics for % success rate for Australians, and they dodged the question again. The Monday after I talked to them they said either register or not bother as the training was starting "very soon". I kept asking for an official guarantee of a job and they insisted that I didn't need to worry, and that I had run out of time and needed to make a decision. Yeah, two days to make this kind of decision. Eventually the "senior supervisor" came on and would give me an email declaration and that I had half an hour to consider it. I told them if I didn't have a day to talk to my family about it, forget it. Maybe some of them are legit, but a company that has constant changes of hand with who's speaking when I ask logical questions about security seems strange. I still have no idea how they got my resume or if they even had the right one. I never gave Wireclass itself a resume specifically... and if they did get the resume from one particular client, why couldn't they tell me exactly who they were? Online reviews for them seem mostly positive, but there are a couple that echo my situation, so I'm taking the safer route this time out. They could have paid for those positive reviews, but there's no obvious reason for people to make up negative ones. I was still not sure who I was speaking with by the end. But they all sounded Indian, calling from another country. Very strange...

I received a voicemail from someone called Deep Mishra at wireclass who offered me a full time position with them. He then sent me an email saying the same stuff. I was cautious because he didn't mention what kind of position I was to be offered so I emailed him back asking for details. He sent me the role of a "Financial Business Analyst". He then scheduled a phone interview with me where he told me I'd have to pay $700 as a "Security deposit" assuring that I wouldn't accept an offer from another company. He said they were willing to sponsor my H1-B and send me an offer letter for OPT but I would have to accept the offer ASAP (Within two days) SCAM ALERT!!!! He was very pushy about me accepting the job within the week.

WIRECLASS IS CERTAINLY A SCAM! I was desperately looking for a job when I received a phone call from this so called company called WIRECLASS. The person with the name Kevin Jones who sounded Indian without doubt, offered me this great job opportunity! He mentioned that I will have to go through online training which will cost $700. His supervisor, Sam Parker, & manager Allen Smith assured me that they will reimburse the amount as soon as the training was over and that they will set up interviews for me with their existing clients and have me on their payroll once the training was over. The online training was conducted by someone with the name Santanou Saha, who claims to have 5 years of experience in teaching Business Analytic and SAS Analytic classes. However during the training the trainer merely read directly from the bunch of slides. He hardly answered anyoneâ€™s question to a degree of their satisfaction. In short, it was a mockery of anything that can be called as training! The class was supposed to be for 1.5 hours twice a week. However the trainer would often cut it down to 30 min or an hour and also skipped a class or two. On the last day of the training, I received quite an unexpected email from Allen Smith which said that they are having issues with the server and therefore they will get back to us only after 10 days and that wireclass will not respond to any emails or phone calls during that period. THIS IS WHEN I KNEW THEY WERE A SCAM. NO GENUINE COMPANY WILL SUDDENLY TAKE OFF FOR SO MANY DAYS WITHOUT PRIOR NOTICE. ANYWAYS I TRIED REACHING AFTER 10 DAYS- NOBODY PICKED UP MY PHONE CALL OR RESPONDED TO MY EMAILS. BEWARE: WIRECLASS TARGETS MOSTLY PEOPLE FROM INDIA. THEY DO NOT USE INDIAN NAMES EVEN THOUGH EACH ONE OF THEM IS FROM INDIA (THEY SOUND INDIANS WITHOUT DOUBT). THE MONEY THEY CHARGE FROM YOU AS TRAINING ENROLLMENT FEE IS TRANSACTED TO AN ACCOUNT IN KOLKATA (WEST BENGAL, INDIA)- MAKES IT EVEN HARDER TO TRACK THEM DOWN!THEY HAVE BEEN ON AND OFF ON FACEBOOK. THEY CAN CONTACT YOU WITH NAMES DIFFERENT FROM NAMES MENTIONED IN THIS EMAIL AND CAN EVEN CHANGE THE NAME OF THEIR COMPANY. THEY DO NOT DISCLOSE THEIR ACTUAL LOCATION AND NEVER SEND OR RECEIVE ANYTHING VIA MAIL.
