Partners Group — Scam Job Offer
I saw a posting for a Work-from-home Data Entry position on CL which I responded to.
Got a response back scheduling an interview for 9 am, Tuesday, Sept 28, via Yahoo IM.
The interviewer instructed me to complete some paperwork via an email questionnaire which I responded to at [protected]@gmail.com. They also sent me some info on the position and job requirements and I finally got to see the company name, Partners Group.
I suspected it was not an American company because of the way they spelled 'programme.' And then I really got suspicious when they indicated pay was by check or money order only; that's pretty unusual these days of direct deposit, but then I would have been reluctant to give them my banking info anyway. The only clue was the pay was $15 an hour for 4 hours a day, but after 2 months, you would get full benefits - NO WAY!!!
Nevertheless, I answered the 15 business questions and immediately got a reply saying they were impressed with my responses and I was hired! More importantly, my training would start tomorrow morning at 9 am!!! They requested a lot more info from me which I told them I was happy to provide, if I could get the full name of the company, the address and the website...no response. So I googled Partners Group and saw Partners Group scam which brought me here...
