Type of a scam Employment
There were two job postings on the Ohiomeansjobs website claiming to be for receptionist positions at the Lubrizol Company. I emailed my resume to a person referring to themselves as Sandra Martins ([email protected]). This person then replied with details (see below) in which I was to set up an online interview with a person referring to themselves as "Scott Smith." The online interview was through Yahoo Messenger. At first, "Scott Smith" described himself, including his age. His description contained many grammatical, capitalization, and punctuation errors. "He" then asked me my age and sex. "Mr. Smith" went on to describe the Lubrizol Company, much of which matched verbatim the information I had read about the company the night before, including the information about a fire at one of the Lubrizol facilities in Pennsylvania. During the rest of the interaction, "Mr. Smith's" language errors increased to the point that I seriously questioned the credentials, including a number of impressive degrees, "Mr. Smith" stated at the beginning of the exchange. "Mr. Smith" insisted I buy software from a vendor of his choosing so I could the job I was all too quickly hired for. He then said I needed to wire money for the software that he believed I "could handle the cost" of. He went on to ask me for my address, which he should have possessed if he also possessed my resume. I questioned his identity and asked where he was born. He replied, "USA." I tried to question him further but he failed to respond.
