What's the goal of these fake recruiters?


They work for these body-shop consultancies and place candidates on visa with their contacts at leading firms. I think the payroll will be run by them and they take a cut before paying the salary.

I used to think these happen only in tech but I am in finance and accounting role and it seems they have made in roads in all areas of work now. 🤷‍♂️

Lol, it’s like a game of whack-a-mole, you block one there are five more the next day.

I was at a friend’s. Her and her neighbors are all moms and get together for dinner while the kids play. A father showed up to drop off kid while the mom was busy elsewhere, instead of going about his plans he stayed with us. I felt so much sexual tension with him there its so weird. I was attracted to something about him and i know i had his attention. I could barely look him in the eyes when he would make conversation. I wanted to… you know what. SO WEIRD. Hes not even a 10! Im so confused.
