Quote from: von Corax on December 01, 2023, 09:53:39 PMMy really amazing $38/hr Software Engineer job offer revealed itself to be a scam. There were a number of red flags which I noticed prior to yesterday's M$ Teams chat, such as the rather perfunctory nature of the telephone interview, the bugs in a web site developer's web site, the lack of a phone number on the site, and the fact that dig revealed that the domain name of a company in business since 2019 was only registered in October.The kicker came when they texted me a photograph of a cheque and asked me to use my Mobile Banking app to deposit it so I could purchase my computer equipment from their preferred vendor. When I insisted on an e-transfer instead, they vanished and I have not heard from them since.For the record, the company is Echo Perficient Solutions of Toronto ON.Fortunately, my current employer were more than willing to allow me to withdraw my resignation.

And I've had two epi seizures in the two weeks that we've been in 2024.

I've just learned that they followed me to the new place and I must get the entire house treated. Bleh! On the other hand, the rep said it would make treatment easier if I start unpacking my stuff now.
