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.

The old adage comes to mind, if it looks too good to be true, it is.

And yeah, that deal with the resignation might come back to bite you in the butt...

But I wish you all the best!
I have defied Gods and Demons. I am your shield; I am your sword. I know you: your past, your future. This is the way the world ends.
