Confero Warns of Interview - Job Offer Scam – David Foster - It’s a Fake!

Apr 30, 2015 by Confero Inc.

We learned today about a fake mystery shop offer for the position of personal shopper/secret shopper. These fake positions are advertised through Workable and possibly other sites as well. The scammer, who goes by the name of David Foster, invites people to interview with him through Skype and claims falsely that he works in Human Resources at Confero.  Please do not follow the steps for setting up the Gmail account, sending your resume or participating in the interview, as this is a scam. 

We want to remind everyone to please be aware of scams! 

  • The scammers often fake an email address from a legitimate mystery shopping company.
