Sitel Group

Sitel Group Scam or Legit? Check Sitel Group Reviews below.
Samuel – Mar 01, 2021

Almost the exact same thing happened to me as to the others who told their stories here. I applied for data entry and customer service jobs on snagajob.com, which I think does not properly vet the employers listing on there. I received a response from someone who claimed to be with the Hiring Department of the Sitel Group. He was NOT with the Sitel Group, just to be clear. This was a case of impersonation and bank fraud and has nothing to do with the actual Sitel Group, which I would actually like to work for! I went through the whole online job interview on Google Hangouts which took about a half-hour. They were all legitimate questions that would be asked in an interview. I was told that I needed to order equipment but that it would all be financially covered by the company. They sent me a check which I waited to clear, and then I was told to send money via Zelle to their “vendor”. Then I was told that the equipment needed a software update and that was going to cost more. I was sent another bad check which my bank cleared after a holiday weekend last year. Once again, I was asked to send another payment to a vendor for the software update. Thus far, his response time and online demeanor were very professional. The last time I was told that there was an unexpected additional cost, I was asked if I could go to a Walmart or a CVS to get a pre-paid Apple Card. I told the man that this was not an option and could we do a check and a Zelle payment as before. He said the vendor INSISTED to be paid with an Apple card. At this point, it was seeming more and more as though the job was not real, and I happened to look up “iTunes card frauds”, and apparently it’s a real problem. Instead of payment, people ask for these Apple cards instead, then they pass around the number and it gets used multiple times for purchases before it gets flagged by the Apple payment processors. Anyway, long story short, they were able to fraudulently get over $2,000 from me and my bank told me it was my fault. It was discharged in the end because I told my bank that I had waited for them to clear the checks before I made payments with the money that I thought was available and that it was their responsibility to suss out bad checks, not mine. I merely said that I do not consent to the cost liability of that kind of check fraud. I don’t use that bank anymore. What can you do? That is the most important lesson of these stories. Pay attention to the email associated with the alleged hiring party. If it is not an official-sounding email, it probably isn’t a real job or a real person. Don’t do remote interviews on Google Hangouts. Talk to an actual person, even if it’s Zoom or Skype. Google Hangouts is very hard to trace the location of the people who are on there which is why these criminals use it. If a company tells you to buy the equipment, don’t. The real company would just send it to you once they hired you with zero involvement on your part in terms of obtaining the equipment. These are desperate times for many people, so keep your eyes peeled and oxygen flowing to your brain, and don’t let people fool you because you need a job that badly. I hope this helps someone out there!

I was approached on Facebook about a work at home job with this company. Upon getting in contact with Mr. Thomas the company HR Manager he told me that he will be sending me a check to my email, all I was to do is print it out and deposit it into my checking account using my mobile app. They sent me a check that was for $1,850. After the check was deposited he told me I had to cash app the funds to a vendor name Cheryl Garcia. This is where things fell apart, the cash app wouldn’t allow me to send the money and ultimately the checks bounced. It is all a scam and they get very angry in the process.

Wow, the exact thing happened to me. His “name” was Jerry Brogdon and he completed an interview immediately. The checks were not able to be deposited so they asked if they can do it as me instead and that I can change my log in once they were done. That’s when I knew something wasn’t right and sent them on their merry way. Very sad to see companies scam innocent people who are trying to make a decent living. NEVER send personal info to these people!

Like the ones before me I am looking for a job. I found a job on Snagajob.com, was contacted today from someone name John Clarkson offering me a job. I needed to contact him via Google Hangout and after going through the interview I started to get suspicious of the whole thing. If you are going to buy my equipment, why don’t you send it to me, why send me a check to cash and buy myself. I found this site and now getting ready to contact Snagajob.com and tell them they have fraudulent jobs listed on their site.

Samuel – Dec 14, 2020

I just had “John Clarkson” email me as well, telling me to download something called Telegram so we could conduct an interview. It felt fishy so I’m glad I found this because you’ve proved my instinct right. I had also applied to the job through snagajob. On there it had listed the company name as Amazon but John Clarkson says he is from Sitel Group, which is a legitimate company but he obviously is a scammer.

Chief Human Resources Officer contacted me via email and then we communicated via Google Hangout. They offered me a work from home position and said they would send me a check so I may purchase the required equipment from the company they work with. They sent via FedEx an overnight check in the amount of $3,500.00. I had to send them a copy of the check when I received it so the funds could be released and then a copy of the deposit slip confirming it was deposited. The check was returned to the bank so they asked me to download Cash App. After I completed the steps as requested they asked for me to send them the log in code so the accounting department could verify information. I refused to give them this information and have not heard from them since.

Type of a scam Employment

I was looking for a new job online and came across 3 data entry positions on snagajob.com, I applied to all 3 of them.Then, 2 days later I receive 3 e-mails all in regards from the same company that was interested in hiring me (Sitel group) which is a real company they were disguised as, but none of them pertained to the companies I had recently applied to. Regardless, I then proceeded and replied to the e-mails stating I was interested in the interview, and all of a sudden I find myself doing an interview through google hangouts messaging. Fast forward, they ask me 10 questions to respond to which seemed like legitimate questions an interviewer would ask someone. Next thing you know they tell me that I’m fit for the position, "you’re hired." They then proceed to tell me about the job and how I’m going to need new equipment because of the software I need won’t work on my personal computer. I was then explained that any expenses would be paid for via a check they would send me through the mail. I receive the check 2 days later, deposit the check and call it a day. The following day, I receive a message from the supposed hiring manager stating that in order for me to get my data reader and time tracker I will need to send $500 for the equipment and $200 for the next day shipping to the company vendor through Zelle and as soon as they had the tracking number they will send it to me. So I sent the money via Zelle to the account and I wait till the next morning expecting my equipment to be at my door, and when it still hadn’t arrived I realized there was something wrong, I let the person know what they’re doing is extremely sketchy and they then ask me to go to my local CVS or Walgreens and buy a $100 gift card. That’s where I cut the conversation

I was contacted through email that my resume was approved online by a private company named Sitel Group. The company is not at fault here however, the scammer was using the company’s name to appear legitimate. They contacted me and told me to message someone by the name of Michille Cyrus on google hangouts. I was given a "certification code" and told to message this person ASAP. After messaging this person, they proceeded to conduct an online "interview" with the intentions to learn my name and address to send me an illegal check. I was "hired" by this company and was given a position, a time to start and a weekly salary. Then I was asked what bank I use so that they can "check" their companies records to see if it aligns with their payment lists. After that, they then told me that they will send me a check for the equipment I was going to be using for the job. I received the check a few days later and it was clear that this was a scam. The check had no indication that the company had written or sent it. It was under a random law firms name. It also came with a note telling me to text a number to be "authorized" in order to deposit the check. I never deposited the check after realizing that it wasn’t their money nor was it my money.
