| Re: New Candidate: Samantha Giguere for 'Office Assistant / Administrative Assistant / Customer Service' This email was sent to me on friday May 27th, 2016. When I emailed her back saying I would not be available for the interview on saturday via google hangouts chat because i was in an out of service area for the holiday weekend she told me to contact Jeff Sele, the recruiter for the job, to reschedule it for monday. Instead of doing that i contacted him while i had service for this interview in google hangouts chat. Within my conversation with the supposed Jeff there were multiple red flags that showed me it was a scam such as his email address not being associated with the actual company and just being a google email. He said the company would provide me with the materials such as hp laptop and software to perform job duties and that they would send me a check for the amount i would need to cover the materials and i would buy said materials from their trusted vendor only. He said i would need to deposit the check either with the atm or by using my mobile banking app. He said that i would then buy the materials from their vendor online in a online cash deposit only and that i would keep 100 for my sign on bonus. The interview process was not really an interview at all. and over the course of 3 days talking with this person it just got more and more weird. |
The check and vendor situation is a scam because they would have you either use ur mobile bank app or use the atm so that you don't see an actual banking person because they will know once they scan the check that it is fraud. Then you would send the CASH online payment to them except a 100 dollars. BEWARE of this scam because anyone who cannot read between the lines is sure to fall for it. I have had people try to scam me on multiple different occasions and they all were very noticeable at first. This one sadly took me a few days of searching to find out it was a scam indeed.
