Admin and Secretarial

Corporate Attorney

Contract

Important.

There is a growing scam attempting identity theft by impersonating a company that is hiring. The scammers purchase a domain then use a different ending such as .us instead of .com. They send an email to a candidate from the imposter domain indicating that they’ve been selected for an interview, followed by a second email requesting personal information (under the premise it is for a background check) in an attempt at identity theft. Be careful.

If you receive an email from careers@redstreamtechnology.us it is a scam attempting to gather personal information.
