Scam Job Email?


I recently received an email from someone claiming to work in association with Universal Music Group (I’m currently interested in working in the music industry). I thought it was extremely weird to receive this email when I’ve never applied for a position at Universal. Down below is the exact email message I received:

Hello Sean,

I’m almost certain this is a scam based on the message alone. Everything from researching the company to the links looks extremely sketchy. I was wondering if anyone else has received these types of emails?

    Her FB page lists her as working for that company but I guess the question would be is the person who wrote to you the same person of FB. She also has a wedding page.

    When I was still working decades ago I would get calls from staffing agencies. These were always dubious endeavors. They liked to have a pile of people on hand. I think that is what this is. I do not think it means they have an actual job for you but that they want to add a body to their pile.

  2. not sure what they’re angle is, but yes its’ a scam

  3. The company is legit and this person has a linkedin page saying they work there. They provide temp/contract workers. Your name may have been gathered from a school you go to, a group you’re a member of, or even a friend that knows you’re interested in the music industry. You can always reach out directly to the staffing firm to verify that the person listed is a legit employee and get their contact info directly from them…
