I got a phone call from a lady who introduced her name to me as "Nyen" (I am not sure if that is how it should be spelled), she told me that a friend of mine recommended me to her as I am very hardworking and have good work history. She said that they are currently expanding their office locations and would need someone like me, asked me some questions on how long I have been working and what kind of work I am doing. She sounded very polite and professional and since a very nice friend of mine is the person who gave away my number to her so I kinda trusted her a bit. She schedules for us to meet for an interview. I missed the first one but she was very eager for us to meet so we met yesterday, Friday (October 10) at 5 pm.
Since I am a person who doesnt want to be late in any appointment, I was so in a hurry to finish my parent-teacher conference that I've scheduled for the day just to see what is this "job" would be.
I arrived 5 minutes before 5pm, and no one was at the front desk so I called her on her cellphone, right away, she got out of her office and asked me to come in. She started with a statement saying "If someone would offer you a job that would make your life better, are you willing to leave your current job right now?" I was kinda' offended with her statement so I told her, well, I could not answer your question because I am not the type who decided in a snap of a finger, especially that I have worked so hard to achieve my career and presently very happy. She did not get an answer for me but she started talking about how teachers in the US are not getting paid well, etc, etc, and that I deserve better, etc. etc, saying some realted stories about her childhood as a student and that her teachers are very nice, etc. etc (for me, I was just looking at her and at that point I know that she is making up stories. I have learned non-verbal clues of a person who is lying and I have seen a lot of her gestures that tells me that she is not sincere, especially that she keeps saiying that she don't lie.
After an hour, she finally showed me a dream map of how their company works, how I am going to earn some money but in my head, I know that she will just end up selling me something in the end but I remained respectful eventhought I loved to really leave her office immediately because I felt that it was a waste of time.
Finally, she asked me, so do you think you have families and friends that you could help out? I calmly said "no." she was very persistent on getting me to agree with her but did not get any positive response so she began telling me about it is easy and I could earn a certificate, blah blah and that I have to pay $100.00 for a background check to make sure that I do not have any crimial records or misdemeanor, etc. when I said that I have to think about it and could not decide right now, she told me that she really have to have my background check because she trusted me as a person. How unreasonable, right? Who is the stupid person who would actually say that to someone who is being offered a so-called job??? Well, anyway, I just told her that "I am sure that I do not have any bad records because I am a teacher. She stopped and was thinking on how she could convince me again so I would pay before I leave. Finally, I told her that I have to pick up my son from after school activity and that I am very tired already, when she knew that she can not be able to convince me to sign anything, she got up and was ready to let me go. Before she finally let me go, she wanted to schedule me to see her with my husband during my lunchbreak, or during saturday, etc, both I refused and told her that I will just call her.
Well, after I left her office, I felt good that I have not been fooled. I was trying to recall all her inconsistent statement on how I would earn some extra money, but seems very unbelievable. Today, I still have her thoughts and wanted to see how legit the company was. To my surprise, there were soooooooo many victims already. I would love to file a police report about this and be able to help out those we were victimized. I just feel so sorry for those people who would fall into her trap.
