Responded to ad for admin assistant posted on Workopolis Sept 2. | David Dwayne, HR Manage of JDP Construction LTd email me Sept 19. His company is opening a office in Toronto. When could I do a phone interview? This switched to emailed interview questions which i answered. He confirmed he got them, asked for references. Next email, he’s close to a decision, what’s my availability? | Last email, Sept 26: I have to job but he needs me to start work before the office opens. | –He will send a cheque for office supplies, a laptop and a disc so I can work from home | –He wants me to book hotels for him in Toronto, buy office supplies and talk to the office property manager | –He will bring the employement contract when he arrives on Oct 26 | Warning bells. I asked him to email me the employement contract and haven’t heard from him since. | If laptop and cheque arrive, I’m giving them to the police. Cheque will be fake and laptop stolen or full of malware. | Thank you, Sonia in Miami for filling a report on this guy Sept 26. I really appreciate the reality check. | Warning signs I’ll watch out for: | –Unnamed comapny in job advert | –Salary and other details changed in each document or were not included consistantly in all documents | –Porrly written website with no info about projects or management team | –Poor writing in job description and letters | –Googled JDP Construction Ltd and found company name in Nigeria, the Phillipeans, Florida and Vancouver | A real company will protect their name and brand. They will have well written documents and a decentwebsite to attract customers–so they have the money to expand to another city/country. My mistake was giving this guy the benefit of the doubt because many legit companies and individuals have crappy websites and are disorganized–hence their need for an admin assistant.
