SSTCS Talent Management is a scam

HR Director Name: Bill Alley
www.sstcsinc.com                866-547-8211

Host:   dreamhost.com
abuse@dreamhost.com

This staffing company is a fake.  The scammer is using a spear phishing tactic to promise you a job with one of their clients.  The scammer wants to get your date of birth and social security number.  He got your occupation and region from LinkedIn or Indeed.

This scammer has created more than thirteen fake staffing company web sites.  Each one has a different name and different HR director (see list below) but all other aspects of the web sites are identical including the list of Leadership Team.  

Doing a search shows the domain is hosted by a company in Brea, California. Report the incident to Brea police department. 

Report it to the FBI & FTC at the following web site:

  1. Add REGIS Talent Management Consulting Solutions Group to that list. I applied for a job on Indeed last week, and got an email from "Jim McClain" from them a couple of days later, asking to me to fill out my profile on their website. Before I had a chance to do so, my fiancee was killed in a car crash (this was just last Thursday) and so I replied to his third email and advised that I would not be in a good position to interview or make any changes right now. The next day I got another email, asking me to update my profile. I replied again and told him the same thing. Yesterday I got ANOTHER email asking me to update my profile, and I replied that I would never work for him or his company if he couldn't even take the time to read my email and see that I am grieving right now. Today I got another email. The first sentence was as follows: "Nevertheless, did you get my message from the other day? I am resending it here (below)....."

    Fuck this company so much...

      My dad passed away recently and since then I've been applying for several jobs within proximity to where I live. This same "guy" sent me 6 emails in the last 3 days. I don't remember applying for an IT Staffing role. Avast blocked the link directing you to a site to select a calendar appointment. I too, have sent several emails notifying him and today the message read "My IT department has notified me of an issue which has been resolved. Please update your information (well, you know the rest). I reported it as SPAM / Spearfishing and called it a day. It's a damn shame this happens, but it's a direct indication of the world in which we live today, an it's not going to end.

  2. Dealing with the same issue from REGIS and Jim Lain. No responses to any of my emails. I sent it to spam and stopped receiving emails from them for months and today they somehow managed to get through and email me.

  3. I have been going through the same thing with Jim Lain. After I told him I wasn't interested, he just sent me another email saying that they had an IT problem and I should just go on now to update my profile.

  5. You guys too??? I am going through the exact same thing with that stupid Regis group. I thought it was miss communication with emails but looks like it is all bull crap. I was trying to find a phone number to call them and found this site. Thank goodness I did. I feel bad that I submitted my info on their site.

  15. Holy crap. I knew this regis group was a hoax. I emailed that Jim guy back asking for more info on the company because I could not find them or an address for them,in my area. I just got another email basically stating everything you guys have posted such as fill out your info and use this link to set up a phone interview. So I typed in the regis talent mangement group and found this thread. Thank you for confirming my suspicions

  19. I've been receiving several emails from "Robert Moore" of "SPHERION" all week for that business systems analyst position. I stupidly completed the "online profile" without even thinking about it twice, but I just checked and the profile didn't ask me for DOB or SSN. Can anything be done with a copy of the resume and my contact info? It's very similar to info posted on LinkedIn. I also checked for Robert Moore through LinkedIn and a general Google search, and he has a profile with pic on LinkedIn, and Google showed he's part of the team at Spherion in LA. I just called the office number on the web, and a voicemail recording answers with a typical business greeting and hours of operation. I'm planning on calling on Monday to get additional info. Has anyone else found that this company's not legit? I'm having enough trouble finding work without having to think about whether my info is "out there". Thanks for letting me know. After I call on Monday, I'll add to this post with an update.

    2. Keylie,

      A person that was targeted by "Robert Moore" sent a new url and I recognized that web site as being the same one as this prolific scammer has been repeatedly building and using in his scams.
      http://www.stmcsgrecruiting.online/robert-moore/

      I have noticed this scammer sets up these web sites and uses the name of real staffing companies. And in some instances real people.

      I did a little searching and there does appear to be a real Spherion. When I did a little searching, their leadership team are all executives of Randstad Staffing. It appears that Spherion is a subsidiary operation that sells Spherion franchises.

      I also searched and see that there is a "Bob Moore" claiming to be a recruiting manager with a large number of connections on LinkedIn.com
      https://www.linkedin.com/in/bob-moore-0530197

      Without knowing how your were contacted I would recommend care. The LinkedIn.com individual uses the name 'Bob Moore' while the scammer uses "Robert Moore."

      Good luck and let us know how things go. If you do get a face-to-face with the real Bob Moore please let him know that a scammer is out their damaging his and his company's reputation. If they are real they may care enough to use their lawyers to demand DreamHost pull the scammer's web site.

  20. Hey I too got an email from Robert Moore I did an application Friday for a vet assistant in Macon ga he replied Monday it's definitely not a real thing as my bf was hired through the real spherion company last year & said this was a scam

    ReplyDelete
  21. I fell for the Spherion one and clicked on the site. Is he just trying to get our SSN and DOB or do the sites also install viruses and malware on our computers?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Not sure if he is planting any malware or viruses.
