smith22 - 2017-03-23

Below is the first email I received from the "school." They claimed to be Dr. Frederico Diazzi from the Benedict School Mirandola (which is a real school). They used the email [email protected] and always included the email [email protected] on the messages. Beyond the first email asking for scans of diploma and passport, and resume and picture, they were to confirm they received the documents and to schedule an interview. I just had the interview and it was very odd (I am still new at this though). He wanted to see how well I spoke English... is this something they do? He quickly asked me things like: describe myself professionally, had I been to Italy before, do I have experience working with children, when could I start, why should he hire me?

I had reached out to a person who said they previously taught at the school and that the school is indeed real, but I would have been contacted by a female Frederica and that email is incorrect.
