However, the job offer and individual they communicated with are not part of our organization.
Cyber Criminals aim to scam hopeful candidates with seemingly ideal job opportunities with the sole intention of stealing their money, identity, or personal information. Fake job scams are not new, but technological advancements make the crime more lucrative for those posing as potential employers. Cyber Criminals fabricate job opportunities that seem real by spoofing websites of legitimate companies and attempting to fool with similar email accounts.
Please note that applications to Menten AI are handled through our HR Department, which requires more than one interview, background check, offer letter, and a formal onboarding process.
