Potential Identity Theft Scam Being Perpetuated Under the Human Capital Consultants Name
Waltham, Massachusetts March 8, 2013 – It has come to the attention of Human Capital Consultants, Inc. that what appears to be an entity outside of the United States is attempting to use Human Capital Consultants identity to perpetuate an identity theft scam. This entity has created a web site at www.humanconsult.org claiming to be Human Capital Consultants and using a previous Human Capital Consultants, Inc. office address in Cambridge, MA. An individual named Maria Scott using a Hotmail e-mail address is contacting individuals who have their resumes and contact information posted on the Internet and offering them a position as a “Financial Services Officer”. One of the qualifications of the position is that the applicant has a “regular bank account”. The e-mail directs the applicant to a web site where they are asked to provide personal information.
This entity is not affiliated in any way with Human Capital Consultants, Inc., a Pennsylvania corporation with business locations in Pennsylvania and Massachusetts and a web site address at www.humancapitalconsultants.com. Human Capital Consultants, Inc. is not offering any position as a “Financial Services Officer” nor would the company direct any applicant to any web site asking for personal information. Additionally, no Human Capital Consultants, Inc. employee or contractor uses any free e-mail provider (such as Hotmail, Yahoo, AOL, etc.) for business communications. All legitimate Human Capital Consultants, Inc. employee or contractor communications come from the humancapitalconsultants.com domain.
Federal law enforcement has been made aware of this situation. Anyone who is contacted by any entity or individual who claims to be representing Human Capital Consultants offering a position as a “Financial Services Officer” or directing an applicant to a web site to provide personal details is asked to contact their local FBI office or notify the FBI via the Internet at www.fbi.gov.
Anyone who would like to verify the identity of any Human Capital Consultants, Inc. employee or contractor or verify that a communication from Human Capital Consultants, Inc. is legitimate is invited to contact Human Capital Consultants, Inc. CEO Mike Astringer by e-mail email@example.com or telephone 800-378-0847 extension 805.
