My issue is not with Bernafon... I personally know nothing about the company.

However, I was just contacted by someone posing as an Bernafon HR manager who wanted to do an interview over Yahoo Messenger. Given the fact that it is for a company that specializes in hearing products, I assumed this was just how they did thing.

I went through with the interview over yahoo and everything seem legit. However, it still did not feel right. So, I contacted the company by phone and asked them about the legitimacy of the interview.

I was advised that this is a ongoing scam and that the company is working with authority. I then went back and asked the individual on yahoo messenger why his company told me that they do not do interviews over the computer. He immediately signed off.

Luckily, I did not give them any personal info.

The names given were Tony Rivera and Douglas Frederick.

Anytime someone wants to interview you via messanger, it is a scam. You can also be sure that the names you were given are fake and the scammers are not in in your country. You can do an internet search on yahoo messanger job or interview scams for more info.

Yeah I was iffy from the start. That is why I never gave any personal info. But given the fact that it was a job for data entry and for a company that makes hearing aids, I thought maybe that is what they do LOL I entertained it for a few minutes.
