HCR Manorcare / Job Scam
This is not a complaint against HCR Manorcare. I have never done business with them. This is a complaint against someone using the HCR Manorcare name to create a job scam.
First I received an email from Pamela Fisher ([protected]@yahoo.com) claiming that I am up for a job opportunity. At the same I received a text message from Kenneth Edcorf [protected]) claiming the same thing. Both asked if I had an Instant Messenger and told me to talk to a David Ham ([protected]@gmail.com)
I had an interview with David Ham but it was all type through Google Talk. Having experience in management and hiring this seemed really odd he did not want to see me face to face or hear my voice. After a bunch of questions he had me wait 45 minutes and told me I got this work from home Admistrative Assistant job. I was going to get $40 an hour plus benefits. He also told me he was going to mail me a check to buy a laptop and a bunch of software and to please keep $100 of it for myself. He then told me to check in the next morning at 8am for information about the check. The next day was a Saturday.
I checked in the next morning. He made no mention of the check. Instead he emailed me some interview questions. He then told me to check in Monday morning at 8am.
This was when something didn't feel right so I Googled his name along with HCR Manorcare and several warnings about this scam popped up. To make double sure I called HCR Manorcare's corporate office. They are already well aware of this scam.
