An Interview Request?

October 2, 2017 Employment job scam 3

I’m currently looking for a job, so I expect to see a lot more work scam/spam. I did not apply for this position. The fact that it is generically addressed to ‘Applicant’ is a good start for a scam, but also the fact that from and CC email address don’t match, they all have different servers. There is no company name anywhere in the email and it looks like two ‘applicants’ were copied on the same email.

Other things that point to a scam are the fact that they want you to connect only through google hangouts and they signed off as human resources.

    Dear Kattosha,

    I too have received the same type of interview approved request from the same person “Mike Belzer.” Did you receive the check or documents that were supposed to be sent out with the check to buy the equipment as well as all of the HR paper work and documents? What happened the next day after you had made contact with Mike? Did he want all of your sensitive and confidential information? At the moment I am waiting till Friday to see if he actually sent out any of the documents or information regarding the job and its responsibilities and duties. Also in my case he said he was working with Energizer Holdings Inc. I am hesitant about him because he never called me on the phone, wanted to setup a Skype call, or even ask for my references for a $58,000 job.
