N00bPancakes6900140dI've heard of this kind of offer before. I don't know of anyone who has taken them up on it.
I assume the scam is that they get you go through this whole dance and then somehow ask you for money ahead of the first paycheck that you're scheduled to earn... and they walk with that or something.
And now it is your name on the line...
Either way it is your name on the line and they risk nothing...
SortOfTested24915140dBorrowed ladders. They're wanting you to be an accomplices in fraud.
Demolishun11219140dWow, my scam radar did not pick up on that. What a bunch of dicks.
C0D463440140dTread carefully, either they'll hang you out to dry and your fucked financially or professionally, or worse you'll get fired and potentially charged - depending on country and laws around sub contracting and your own contractual agreements with your employer.
But I'm sure the whole "ooh I can make my paycheck, and not do any of the work" sounds encouraging, until you have to enter a meeting, explain E2E your entire contributions for x months and not have a fucking clue on what any of it does, that my friend is your undoing.
I have witnessed this first hand, it doesn't end well.
C0D463440139d@N00bPancakes couldn't tell you if it was this specific scam or not, but the idiot was caught subcontracting his work out.
Caught in the sense we had a high suspicion, and enough evidence to suggest it, although they wouldn't admit it and quit before it made it that far, but yea, the fact that this does occur is amazing in its own.
Edit: Nope. Nope. Nope.
