Do not trust this company! Ignore phone calls and do not respond to inquiries!
Here is why:
A few weeks ago I got contacted from both my previous employers. Both said that they get bombarded with phone calls and emails from WKPRM. This polish company tried to confirm my employment background.
On behalf of WK Personal Risk Managers.I would like to confirm the employment of GUIDO Zgraggen in your company. Such verification is required for the recruitment process, because the above mentioned person has recently applied for a job.
Since, my previous company didn’t respond, they sent an email in German:
(Which is a 1:1 Google translation)
Im Namen der WK Personal Risk Managers.I möchte die Beschäftigung von GUIDO Zgraggen in Ihrem Unternehmen zu bestätigen. Eine solche Prüfung ist für das bewerbungsverfahren erforderlich, da die oben genannte Person hat vor kurzem für eine Stelle beworben.
The weird part about this is that I was never informed about this background check. Furthermore, they must have called several people till they reached my boss from the apprenticeship. Since the company was renamed and also reorganized. Besides I didn’t mention anywhere the name of him. btw: This was also almost 10 years ago!
Even though it was a little far-fetched I asked my current employer if they asked for the background checked. But they told me that they never heard of this company. My next thought was that someone must be using my identity especially my background (resume) to get a job. So I contacted this company to find out what is going on. But WKPRM never responded to my emails. So therefore the only reasonable explanation left is that this company is a fake!
