We condemn the actions being deployed by these threat actors and regret the disruption it has caused for potential candidates.
I was recently told I had the job for data entry at $35 an hour but they didn’t give me my hours or call me at all. Definitely a scam from someone using a name under Inova Health System.
There is a new scam, Vishnu Kaushik that is on LinkedIn, has over 500 connections, but has poor wording and is not a part of the company recruitment team. Please be careful, as the profile appears robust at first. He asked for my resume and a time to call. This was of course very exciting as I had experience that aligned with the bioinformatics position, but thankfully I noticed that something seemed off.
