I replied with my interest and then received the following correspondence which also had two documents attached that I was to return. One of the docs asked for my birthdate, which is very odd, so I started looking further into the company and couldn’t find any matching information for them. I then realized this is a scam/fraud and have not corresponded further.

Second email:

Thank you for your interest in the Project Manager position and in our training program.

We are interested in CA area, mainly because of companies like Chevron Corp, Old California Mining Company and a number of others located in that area.

This area is very important for our future. In your case, the office will be in LA – it’s due to open in April.

You won’t have to relocate. You can either work from our nearest branch or from home. When the exact location is announced,

you’ll be one of the first to know. If you choose to work from home, we’ll provide everything you need including laptop, scanner,

printer and phone – and we’ll cover all related expenses.

To apply, please fill out the attached Questionnaire and Agreement and return them via email within 1 business day. If you still have any

questions we’d be happy to phone you for a chat at a time that suits you – just let us know in your email.

The next training session starts on the 11th of February and lasts 5 weeks. The first 4 weeks are devoted to daily studies with a weekly test on Fridays,

and the 5th week is reserved for the final test.

For the next 4 weeks, you will be receiving one study pack in your email every morning, Monday through Friday. The Friday pack will also include a short test

to assess your understanding of what you studied during the week. Highest scoring trainees will be invited to take part in part-time projects, for which they

will be paid. Paychecks will be sent out after you’ve completed the 4th test and before taking the final one. All trainees receive $2,400 as remuneration for

their time and effort. Please note: getting an above average test score can double this amount.

If you pass successfully through the first stage, you’ll be invited to take part in the second. The second stage takes place in New York and features a week-long

course of instruction followed by a final interview. We cover all expenses, including travel, food and accommodation. Your full-time engagement will begin after

you’ve completed both stages of the training. The full-time contract will be a W2 – the training period is covered by a 1099.

The Training Department would also like to conduct a telephone interview. I’ll sort out the timing for that as soon you send me your application forms.

Best Regards,
