I received a TEXT MESSAGE from (980)-216-8146 They wanted me to confirm my first, middle initial , and last name I did not comply I then asked what is this regarding and who am I speaking to? I then received a text message stating Good Day I am Tracy Stanton from Westfield Group Ltd. your resume has been reviewed and posted to our head dept please kindly reply if interested? (question mark included) I quickly responded saying this appears to be a scam it is highly unlikely a legit employer would reply to a resume via text message no thank you please do not contact this number any further. I further warned that I would complete a review of Westfield Group Ltd. ( which I am doing now ) to warn other as well as contact the authorities regarding this matter. I have not received any more messages at this point it's a shame that in the process of job seeking you encounter this kind of foolishness.
I received a text saying my resume was reviewed and forwarded to a higher office. I haven't submitted any resumes in a long time. I text back and got no reply. I called and received voice mail. I almost instantly received the same text from earlier. The only thing that bothered me was they knew my first name middle initial and last name.
