Yesterday (Tuesday - 1.56 PM), I did receive a call from [protected] saying that I applied for a few positions in Hyundai America. Initially, he did bluff me, saying that I applied for Director Position, which I never did, and later talked about the Sr. Manager GPLM role, which I did apply for. I thought he was a genuine caller. He said someone called Eric wants to talk to me.
Since I did work recently for Ford Motors might be a reason he showed interest in my profile. I didn't remember a caller's name or if he mentioned it. He said he would send the calendar invite for a meeting with Eric on Thursday at 2:00 PM, which I have not seen yet. Now he is not receiving my phone, and there is no email with a calendar invite; there was no email even before for a quick chat or discussion. He did deny sharing information over email. Due to his behavior now, I find it very scary regarding a data breach or privacy. If he is not the genuine caller from the Hyundai HR team, then this is concerning to me; more concerning may be for Hyundai HR. How come he did receive Hyundai HR information? I would like to know from you, please verify the recruiter who is looking at the below job and called me from the above phone number (assume Hyundai's phone#) is genuine.
The fear here is his hiding attitude. I have no problem with rejection but fear about data breaches.
Later I was reached out by person called John, and he said he talked to me but there was no accuracy on his conversation. Please don't reach out to candidate without any consent and meeting request so that It can be identified who was the point of contact.
