ME:

I'm a little confused, is this a job offer?  I know you are stating referral to a supervisor after I have been considered by the board of director's but I still don't know much about the position, training, orientation, location?

David Cooper

You will get to know all of that as we proceed further.

ME:

It sounds like a nice offer.  What are the working hours M-F?  You indicate 40 hours or less so is it more part-time than full time work?  How long is the training program?  What is AD&D Insurance?  Is this a permanent position?

David Cooper

This is both temp and permanent position

David Cooper

Okay.. Bye

ME:

Goodbye.

ME:

These are my own comments to anyone receiving a similar offer.  DON'T DO IT.  All of the responses from Mr. Cooper were very scripted and quick so I know it wasn't just typed as we were texting.  It was from pretyped responses because the same information just about word for word or very similar was found here on Ripoff Report SCAMS.  To include his last response of "being a Father and Grand Father...68 years old, etc."  Thank you Alejandro Hunter for your posting of Fortis Healthcare SCAM.  Compare his post and mine and you can see the same script is being used in the SCAM.  Another flag is all the typos in the text.

If the offer seems to good to be true, it probably is.  I'm so glad I did my reasearch and DID NOT fall for this scam or let it go any further.  Use Google to research the company.  This company has a website and appears to be a true company but I don't know it could be fake too.  Or the SCAM is using a valid company to front their SCAM without the company's knowledge.  You decide about that.  Go one step further and search the "company name scam" and see if you find any SCAM reports on it.  That is how I found Alejandro Hunter's post.

As you can see David Cooper did not have much to say once I confronted the SCAM issue with him.  Just a scripted response that is similar or matches Alejandro Hunters post.

Lastly, David Cooper contacted me via Instant Messaging via my posted phone number.  My own intuition thought this was unusual since this had never happened to me before.  He even asked me if I had ever done an online interview before?  The first text was, "Hello is this and my name?  My response was who is this?  David Cooper responded with "I'm Mr. David Cooper from Fortis Healthcare Ltd. I'm contacting you in respect of your resume which you posted online and we have forwarded to our Head Department..Please kindly reply back if interested so we can move on to the next step."  ME:  What resume are you speaking about?  David Cooper:  He gave the the site where my resume was so I felt comfortable proceeding.  "Initially he wanted me to use Hangouts to receive the job briefing and interview.  When that wasn't successful he instructed me to quickly set up a yahoo mail account (mail.yahoo.com) and a yahoo instant messenger (http://messenger.yahoo.com).  Then asked me to add his recruiting desk address to my yahoo buddy list for an interview.  Yahoo mail and instant messenger are often used in these SCAMS.  Another red flag.

After finishing for the evening. I did my research and found it to be a SCAM and ended the process the next morning.  Another red flag was the job was to be M-F but he needed me to start this process over the weekend.  Just do your research and be careful out there.
