Type of a scam Employment
I had been contacted through text about a job working from home for a company called Lux Medical, I had been requested to hold interview online and although I thought I would be meeting face to face it turned out to be an Interview through instant messaging via Google Hangouts. I had my suspicion but at $45/hr I had to learn more. Instead of me explaining the whole conversation and how it ended with me contacting Human Resources Dept through the official Lux Medical Website to ensure the validity of the offer I am posting the whole conversation below. I will be removing my personnel information for obvious reasons. Like to note that I have not received word back through my attempt to confirm the offer with the HR dept, but after bringing to attention that I had made such attempt Mrs. Hannah Ward has disappeared from the conversation.
How are you doing?
Good and yourself?

Okay. I will like to explain the meaning of an on line interview. An online interview is an online research method in which participants are asked a series of questions, given description of the company and the job position aided by the use of computer-mediated communication tools such as live chat , email, or video chat technology, but what we are doing now is the live chat process and during the questions and answer session we will use this method. Are you okay with that?
yes this is ok
The name of the company is ‘ LUX MEDICAL’ Just follow the briefing and you can ask questions when I am through….Let me know when you have finished reading and understanding every line. You will be allowed to ask questions later. With each line just respond with a "Done Reading(DR)" and YES/NO when necessary. Is that clear.
