Job and Recruiting Emails: CyberCoders.com

Have you received an recruiting email like the ones below, claiming to be from Cybercoders.com recruiters:

  • Mary Kim,
  • Todd Easbey,
  • Jodi Cohen,
  • Nick Thantrong
  • Others?

These appear to be legitimate, even if the methodology is somewhat unusual. They do have contact information listed on their website:

CyberCoders
42 Discovery, Suite 200
Irvine, CA 92618
Email: info@cybercoders.com
Phone: 866.421.0200
Fax: 949.885.5150

Using the Whouis.org information, found the name of the owner /registerer of the domain name, Matt Miller.  We called the number above and used the company directory. We got right through to a live human, who told us Mr. Miller was out of the office at the moment.  The person we spoke with was able to answer our questions about the company, though.

They attempt to place candidates with their employer-customers. Given the current job market, it is quite likely that they have many, many more applicants than positions available; which would explain complaints on the internet about a lack of follow-up.

At present, CFR has no reason to believe that this organization is a scam.

As always, we do advise caution in applying for jobs: do not provide social security numbers, passport numbers, drivers license numbers, bank account or credit card numbers information or passwords to any recruiter or company.  The information that is required such as a SSN, should only be provided in person, upon being hired and confirming that the company and the position are legitimate.


Do you have a resume posted online? We'd like to hear from you about your experiences recruiting emails that turned out to be scams or misleading - click here to write us. We suspect these are possibly a new wave of identity theft attacks.

Note: There ARE legitimate recruiting and employment firms on the internet, and some with very similar names to those above.  We recommend you check any company out before you give any personal information to them.  If they do not have a posted address and phone number, or don't answer the phone, don't give them any personal information! The legitimate recruiters will be happy to give you contact information, return calls and act in the open!


What to do, if you DID fill out their form:
