Complaint Review: Hilgon Consulting
Hilgon Consulting I received an email to apply for a job as "Accredited Representative". Levallois-Perret Internet
*General Comment: An all too familiar story
I recieved an email asking me if I would be interested in applying for a position as an Accredited Representative. The job description involved receiving payments from US clients of this France-based consulting firm. As part of the requirements, I would have to open a personal bank account to be used in the process.
The bank account raised suspicions and I spent several hours researching the company and could not find anything neagative. But, I'm not an expert at that, so I was still a little suspicious.
The process moved along to the point that we had a scheduled telephone pre-interview. Near the end of the call I was asked if I understood the job requirements, especially the need for the bank account. I voiced my concerns and said that I needed to find a way to be better assured of the legitimacy of the job and the process. As I was speaking, the connection dropped and I have heard no more from them.
This abrupt disconnect while all I was trying to do was ask for assurances of legitamacy sparked my suspicions even higher.
But, I still have found nothing online to say that it was not legitimate. Can a scam be that well hidden?
I'd like to know whether I blew a legitimate job offer, or if this was a well-disguised scam that needs to be exposed.
