Initial means of contact Phone

I was contacted by a woman, Erin Turner, claiming to be an HR representative from Mal Tech LLC who saw my LinkedIn profile and wanted to know if I would be interested in scheduling an interview later in the week for a Project Manager position. A few days later, she conducted the interview, very normal interview screening and SMART scenarios. She called me back two days later with good news telling me I have been accepted into their preliminary, probationary training program where by successful completion I will be offered a full time position and paid two thousand US dollars for my time; one to two hours a day reading and answering some questions pertaining to project management and the leasing company business. She sent me several documents: job description, training syllabus, interim training contract. She then turned me over to my case manager, Mark Bargas, and he was to mentor me through the training program. I was to complete these assignments each day. After the first week, I received an email from Mark stating Home Office was watching my training progress very closely and impressed with my efforts so far and wanted to extend an offer to work on a side project to help equip a new office going up in Orlando. I was sent several more documents detailing the project, giving me instructions to add their corporate bank account as a Pay From account to one of my credit cards so they could pay my credit card after I made these equipment purchases. They made it very clear they did not want any of my banking or credit card information. Part of the instructions tells you to pay your credit card balance with their account so they can see the transaction of funds requested on their end and afford me my full line of credit to purchase the items on the purchase order. Once the payment is posted, I went and purchased a laptop and shipped it to the person and office location they gave me, Nadine Alarcon, Dulce St, Victorville, CA. They claimed that normally I would use my corporate card and one has been ordered for me, but it would not arrive for two to three weeks before the office opened up. I was informed I would be compensated four to five hundred US dollars for each PO I completed on top of the two thousand US dollars promised for completing the training. In my research of attaching a corporate account to my card, I did not find anything that suggested there was a risk to my personal accounts so I proceeded with trying to complete the project. A day later, my credit card company informed me the original payment was returned from the corporate bank account. When I contacted Mark via email, he said everything looked fine on their end and to give it a day or so to see that everything clears. I was not satisfied with that answer and asked to speak with their Finance Director, Mr. Dustin King; he was listed on the banking letter. No further communication has been heard from anyone at the number listed or from email. I filed a fraud claim, but because I was the one that added the fake account to my card, unknowingly, and made the purchase, I am stuck with paying the bill and someone got a nice new MacBook out of the deal. This was a very elaborate and lengthy con. I have attached most of the documents so you can see what kind of detail went into this ruse. There were ten case studies, one each day, that I was given for my training.

Type of a scam Employment

A company named MalTech LLC reaches out to perspective candidates and claims to have found their resume on a job search engine such as Indeed. They send a job description for the position of project manager with a salary of $102,000. They ask you do a phone interview with a lady named Erin Turner who is supposed to be there HR manager. After you do an interview they then asked two gentlemen named Mr. Mark Bargas who is supposed to be the Regional Manager based in Jersey City and their Head of HR Victor Ruggiero to send you an employment agreement. The agreement is to take some paid online training for a month after which you are supposed to receive $2000 and an offer for a position as project manager in their NYC office supposedly located at 1155 Avenue Of The Americas, New York, NY 10036. After taking some training which was actually kind of challenging and related to the project management field, you receive an offer letter for employment with the company. They then ask you to add a corporate account to your personal credit card for them to use to purchase the office equipment you will use at the new office to be opened in Manhattan. I did not give them any credit card information because it clearly seems like its a scam after the training part. I did actually speak someone at the company named Erin Turner and Mark Bargas. At leas that's who they claim to be. I think its a scam because they reel you in thinking you are competing for a an opportunity for employment with their bogus company. Its actually done well and can deceive people because they scheduled phone interviews and get your public information from job boards such as Indeed. For now they have my full name and address but nothing more for now. They are trying to take advantage of people looking for employment post Covid-19 pandemic. It seems they target the long term unemployed and get the information to contact you from job board websites.

The same events happened to me as well, but the remote work was promised for a site located in Charlotte NC as a project manager. I was contacted because they had seen my resume online. I only talked to “Erin Turner” on the phone for a less than 15-minute interview, but I never met anyone in person, nor did I speak to anyone on an actual interview other than “HR”. After about a week of training, “Mark Bargas” sent a new contract that had many inconsistences from what was originally discussed. I conducted a little more research and found these recent complaints about the "company” There are inconsistencies on their "website" as well. To include the website being created this year. As well, you cannot find any information about their overseas offices. If you look up their New Jersey address location, you find a rundown business warehouse that has no markings and seems to be unoccupied. This morning they asked for me to use my credit card to set up a pay to account.

Below is information of “Erin Turner” and “Mark Bargas” I hope this helps others from being scammed by this.

Type of a scam Employment

A company named MalTech LLC reaches out to perspective candidates and claims to have found their resume on a job search engine such as Indeed. They send a job description for the position of project manager with a salary of $102,000 and easily negotiate to higher salary ranges.

They ask you do a phone interview with a lady named Erin Turner who is supposed to be their HR manager. After you do an interview, a gentleman named "Mr. Mark Bargas" reaches out very quickly with an offer of employment from their Head of HR, "Victor Ruggiero." Mark is supposed to be the Regional Manager based in Jersey City.

The agreement is to successfully pass some online training for a month after which you are supposed to receive $2,000 and an offer for a position as a project manager in their new U.S. based office (in my case, this was supposedly going to be based in Kansas City, MO). They explain that after the month of training, you will then undergo a month of onboarding, at which time you would give notice to your current employer.

After taking some of the training (which was actually time-consuming) related to the project management field, you receive an offer letter for employment with the company. However, when I asked about start dates and when to give notice to my current employer, a reply was not received, which began to raise some flags.

They then ask you to add a corporate account to your personal credit card for them to use to purchase the office equipment you will use at the new office to be opened (in my case, Kansas City). I did not give them any credit card information because it clearly seemed to be a scam.

Note that I did actually speak to two people supposedly associated with the company: "Erin Turner" and "Mark Bargas". This scam is actually well executed as they had answers to nearly all my questions from the start and were very responsive. They scheduled phone interviews and acquire your public information from job boards such as Indeed.

Presently, they have my full name and address but nothing more. They are clearly trying to take advantage of people looking for employment post the Covid-19 pandemic. It seems they target the long-term unemployed and gather the information needed to contact you from job board websites. Such a shame.
