ED Magedson – Founder
Abacus Limited No website, phone number, location- they want to wire transfer you money Unknown
Seemed like a legitimate company at first, though I was skeptical that I was to create an yahoo account and supposed to have an online interview with a "Mrs Kathleen Moore". However, I went through with the interview.
Right off the bat, the person interviewing me wasn't using proper punctuation and making small, slight grammar mistakes, which, to me, is an automatic red flag.
The questions felt legitimate, at first, until I got to questions 10-12:
It isn't usual that an interview would ask such personal questions. Against better judgement, I continued.
I have heard to never trust Western Union transfers. This company was saying they would send me a check for the software I would need to buy and simply the act of depositing this check would be a test of my accounting ability.
There was a lot of discussion about the process of depositing these checks, more so than there was on what the company does or other duties of the job.
After a 5 minute pause for this interviewer to "send our message to HR," I was hired, and greeted with an emoticon.
