I was contacted via www.elance.com for a job offer of HR Assistant paying $20-30/hour. This itself should have been a red flag as the industry standard is at least $5-10 dollars below the offered amount. There was no voice (phone) interview; the only interview they conducted was over the yahoo messenger and asking as much of my personal info as possible. I refused to give it to them. When I started getting suspicious and asked multiple times - where were they located at - he/she finally responded saying in New Jersey but no details. The party was also eager to get started on interviewing me on a weekend day outside of usual work hours (especially if they were on East coast as they said). I reported these people to elance.com and they apologized and also advised that this job provider has been marked as a scammer already.Show more...
