SCAM Berlingua (Spain) and MT Languages (Italy)
SCAM involving 2 different schools (Berlingua Languages and MT Languages) - BEWARE
On December 20th, I was contacted by a Mr. Quereda Leguey, who sent me an email saying Berlingua Languages no longer had a vacancy in Spain, but had one in Italy. And that an Italian school would contact me. He used the e-mail email@example.com disguised as firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since I had never applied to work at Berlingua, it immediately striked me as odd.
A few days later, I received an e-mail from MT Languages in Milan. One Mr. Giorgio Sottsass asked for personal information and even scheduled an interview. I did not send my info, but I did have the interview out of curiosity, and it lasted a grand total of 6 minutes and 33 seconds. Not even 30 hours later, I received a job offer from the e-mail email@example.com, that is very cleverly disguised as firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here’s the “job description” MT Languages sent me:
