Type of a scam Employment
Either these people/person are very dumb and scammers or they are very dumb. i applied to a grocery delivery job on indeed.com just for something to do on the weekend occasionally as my kids are spending less time with me as they get older. His name is Abdifatah. I met him in a shopping mall and sat at the food court. I found his information on linkedin which showed his picture so I knew who he was when we met. he started to tell me that his company takes orders for groceries and he hires shoppers, like me to go and get the items and deliver to the client. Before going into the pay information he said all he needs is my banking information. I said you must be mistaken because if you are for real this is a scam. I suggested he probably meant email money transfers. he didn’t seem to have a clue about that. he talked a bit saying he has 110 customers and 11 drivers in Calgary. His Zallat linkedin account shows 6 followers and 3 employees! On facebook there are about 3 or 4 people that like his comments on Zallat and they are all friends of each others, and all from same culture; I think Somalia. some of the facebook prfiles all have the same saying about allah. he didn’t seem to have a clue about things and went with the flow of how i was asking questions. he said that most of the clients are lawyers and doctors as i said i work for a few doctors. LOL he told me he would email me the expectations and he never did. i sent him a text to 587-432-*** to remind him and he said ‘my bad’ and he will do it right away. i never got the email (3 days ago). he told me to email or call on the website my availability by sunday for the week ahead. this information i felt he made up on the spot as i was asking what day you would need to email availability by. he said the pay scale is $5 per order and you get 7.5 % of total grocery bill. LOL. his fees on the site show $19.99 a month for unlimited deliveries if you buy over $35 each time. or a yearly fee of $149 with unlimited deliveries. LOL if a customer does 10 orders in a month you are paying the delivery person 10 times $5 = $50 plus 7.5 % of total groceries. the company would have to be losing $ right and left. if you look online for Zallat you will find his picture. he is the darker toned person. 2 Asian people are supposedly they computer programmers. i think he is trying to get people who have no clue and perhaps get them to do a test deposit to him or something as he tested me with saying he would need my banking information. his tune changed after that. his website also says you need a criminal check but nothing was every done; no paperwork; no forms; no nothing. just talking to me to see if I am gullible enough. i do not know why he has his picture on the website and linkedin though. very bad website.
