Hi,I have been offered a job with a company ( OPL Storage Arcadia Ltd. ) this is a global company.The first I ever heard from them I received an email from there '' HR department '' with a job offer. I looked up the company and saw the job they had offered me was on there website so i replied asking for more details. I was sent an application form and details of the job description which I filled in and sent back.I have had no phone contact or face to face contact with these people but the last email I received today was to say I would have to do 10 days training starting ASAP which I would be paid £30 a day for and after completing would be guaranteed a place with the company. As part of the training process it involves transferring money between Western union and MoneyGram. I am just wondering if you think I should go ahead. Does this all seem legit? It says the manager will call me on the first day of training and I will meet on the 3rd and 10th day?I would be grateful if you could get back to me ASAP as they want me to start tomorrow.Thank you,Lisa
First port of call
In my opinion this is a scam, it is not likely the company would offer you a position when you have not had any direct conversations with the company. In addition legit companies do not ask for you to wire money. If I was provided with this same information I would not move forward. I looked at their website and I am very skeptical, the only contact info is a very generic address in NY, no phone numbers and no real company information.
Thank you I have just seen a post extremely similar to mine but a different company name and they were given the same answer
