*Author of original report: Wanted to attach the Test Questions so people will know they are getting scammed

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Recently I applied for a job with axis consulting, domain: axys-consult.com

The guys sent me testing materials and a test. After completing the test I was asked if I can help with setting up their local office and purchase some computers for them. I called the building management in NY and they confirmed that this company is not listed there. Also, when I googled parts of the emails I found lots of people scammed by the same guys. This was basically a scam and I would like you guys to remove this domain so other people do not get ripped off.
