I find it weird they never interviewed me before offering the position. I was thinking it could be legit but its a sales cold-calling position. I asked that they call me to discuss the position.

She sent me this:

Good day,

You will speak with the client and decide which of our partners adjust to the clients and sell it to them and then speak to the partner about the price, talk to the client about the price and pay to the partner and write a report about it.
You can ask me any question now. Our managers will call you later.

Sounds like a scam. Requirements: refined appearance???? LOL that should tip you off right there. Also the job description and duties is very generic and all over the place in terms of your responsibilities.

100% fraudulent.

At some point, this "company" will send you a "client" payment---usually funds from stolen C/C or hacked bank account.

The "company" will then ask you to forward these funds to another "client" or "vendor"---usually their criminal accomplice.

Your bank will eventually claw back the stolen funds from your bank account. But the money you forwarded will be permanently lost.

The website also has directory browsing enabled.

Example: https://consultingdba.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/

In that directory, I was looking at the pictures, and there is a particular image that seems to be a little bit out of place: "NORAClassPhoto.jpg".

Why is it out of place? Because it seems to be a personal picture in a business website. The only personal picture. Google is telling me that NORA is "Northeast Off-Road Adventures". The logo in the picture matches the logo in the real NORA website https://www.nyoffroaddriving.com/.

I think this would indicate the owner of the website is in the USA. and likes to go off-roading in NY state. Just to be sure, I did a Whois search... however, the owner of the website (Registrant) is hiding behind WhoisGuard. The contact info points to Panama.

FYI - "WhoisGuard is a privacy protection service that prevents people from seeing your name, address, phone number and email when they do a Whois search on your domain. "

It is normal for some people to NOT put their personal contact info in the Whois data. But this is pointing to Panama. Which is weird. How would you find these people if you had to?

The Canadian address is incomplete: 200 Elgin St, Ottawa, ON K2P 1L5, which is an office building. The address is incomplete because you would need the suite number to find them.

Same with the USA address. It is a big building, the suite number is missing, impossible to find them.

https://consultingdba.com/contact-us/

Telephone number is the same for the USA and for the Canadian office.

I wouldn't do business like this.

Engage at your own risk.

Also, just as a coincidence... cannot find the owner ("Daniel Gellibrand") in LinkedIn... or any reference to consultingdba.com or DBA consulting...

which may not mean anything, but it is weird.

If you google "rebecca wiggins dba consulting" it shows website "datingscams.cc". I linked to the site and it was immediately blocked by Malwarebytes.

Thank you so much for all your replies. I got the same email from and I was wondering if it was a scam.

I received all the emails noted previously. I tried to call the phone number in the email (and on the website), the number is not in service. I called the owner of the Ottawa Address listed to get the suite number and was told they have no office space being leased by a company by the name of DBA Consulting. I also noted the poor grammar and the ambiguous "job description". Another thing that struck me was that the contract said salary would be paid once a month, didn't say if you were to be paid during the "probation period", nor were any work hours listed a all. This is, in my opinion, a scam. I will not waste any more of my time on this. Please be weary everyone! Times like this are scammers dreams. Do not fall prey to them.

Wow I got the same exact email smh. But I fell for it. The only thing is I never sent money, they sent me $2000 and wanted me to go to a bitcoin atm and withdraw $1900 out of the $2000 that was sent to me in exchange for bitcoin. I didn’t do it and the 2k is still sitting in my account. Is anything going to happen to my account? Or me? I’m actually feeling very anxious and I’m beating myself up for this
