DO NOT BELIEVE THIS POST. some of their sources look legitimate, but from researching online, this is one of the ways you get scammed. I got out while I still could. Oh and also, just to point out, there are already a number of Coldwell Banking sites in the US.
She had me do this as my first task:
“Complete this assignment within a time limit of 3hrs.
What items of information do you need before you can approve an invoice for payment?
Tell me about an invoice discrepancy that you discovered and how you resolved the discrepancy.
Tell me about an invoice dispute that you were involved in and what your role was in resolving the dispute.
If you are asked to prepare a bill for services. What information should be included in the bill?
Can you describe some of the methods used to allocate support costs.
What do you understand by the term Charge back?
What experience have you had in fixed assets accounting?
Have done and submitted in .XLS .
You have 3hrs to get them done.”
Then the next task is :
“Write an article on The Best Ways to Prevent Overdue Accounts using your own words.
Each article must be at least 3 pages with examples.
Have done and submitted in .WORD .
Time limit is 3hrs”
I wrote her off after getting this task and realizing for sure that this is totally fake. she replied “You can said you don’t know how to write”. I’m not even gonna bother responding to that. -.-
A lot of what she said to me sounded scripted, robotic, and definitely fake. She copy and pasted most of her interactions with me. I even asked her why she was interviewing me at 9-12pm EST, because that would mean it would have been 1-4am in Australia. She says that she was also working from home in NY. I asked her about the board of directors she supposedly forwarded my interview answers to. She said “yes”, meaning that they were also stationed here in the US. -.-
I read some horrifying accounts of how people would get arrested because the “employer” had them deposit fake checks and then withdraw to wire elsewhere because it was believed to be part of their job. There are also other accounts where the address and phone number you give them are put on random purchases that end up on your porch while the person who bought them ends up calling the police [who then consequently end up on your front porch as well].
