Second was the interview through Google hangouts. The interview was weird as all hell. The interviewer just stopped responding at one point then messaged me at 3:50 in the morning that we would continue at 9 am. I have been hired somehow and now they want me to buy all this expensive stuff to setup a mini office. This is a real company and real people who I have been in contact with who actually work there. Am I right to be concerned?

Did the have a Russian accent?
