Don’t Be Fooled by Illegitimate Job Offerings
An Alert to All Potential Job Candidates
A con artist is posing as John Bialous, our COO, in an attempt to trick job seekers into turning over their sensitive, personal information.
We are taking this matter very seriously and are actively seeking ways to thwart this criminal.
The most important thing for you to know is that we DO NOT engage in the hiring process (interviews included) unless a candidate has completed an application in our online Candidate Portal.

The Phishing Scam
Illegitimate email accounts are being created with a likeness to our Company’s name (Miles Technologies) and are being used to contact job seekers who have posted their information on job sites. The emails sent claim to be “Mr John Bialous," the COO of our company, however this is not the case. The impersonators start out by offering an “online interview” for a “strictly virtual position.” They will go as far as to set up an online interview through Google Hangouts, Skype, or Yahoo IM, in which they will ultimately offer you a position and then proceed to ask for personal information. You should NEVER give out personal information through insecure messaging services. Any job application for Miles Technologies starts by applying through our web portal at https://www.milestechnologies.com/careers.
If a recruiter from our company contacts you, they will send you directly to the Careers page to complete an application. Any email you receive from our employees will show up as email@example.com. We DO NOT use @gmail, @yahoo, @yandex, @everymail, @workmail, or anything other than @milestechnologies.com.
