Subject: Your IT Jobs - HR
The IT market is extremely HOT right now and there is no doubt that, there is a severe shortage of qualified, experienced IT candidates and an over-abundance of IT jobs being advertised by companies all over the country. It seems, most qualified candidates are in such high demand that they are getting multiple offers, which is making it difficult for companies to fill certain positions.
That being said please let me know if you currently have any hard-to-fill IT positions at that we could provide candidates for. We can assist with contract, contract-to-hire/temp-to-perm, or permanent positions.
We have candidates available across all technologies and skill-sets, including (this is only a partial list):
Programmers/Developers - Java, C++, .Net, Ruby, Web, Perl, Python, PHP, ColdFusion, etc
Systems Analysts / Business Analysts
DBA's - SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, etc
SAP Consultants - Technical, Functional, Techno-Functional, Analysts, Developers
Oracle Consultants - Technical, Functional, Techno-Functional, Analysts, Developers
Data Warehouse/Business Intelligence Developers/Engineers - ETL, SSIS, SSAS, SSRS, Cognos, etc
Systems Administrators - Linux, Window, etc
Executive - CIO, CTO, VP of IT, etc
PS - We have just started offering our clients a business model of hiring off-site developers, who can be your employees but working from our office in India. Please ask me for more details, and I can send you our PowerPoint presentation.
So who are BeyondTekIT? (They also spell their name Beyond Tek IT and BeyondTek IT). The WHOIS details for the beyondtekit.com (and beyondtechit.com) are no help because they are anonymised. So, perhaps their website gives a clue.. and indeed they give the following contact details:
BeyondTek ITSo, this is a California company. So it must be registered in the State of California? Err.. no. There is no business entity of this name. So let's check out the address.. well, that turns out to be a store called Postal Max that rents out mailboxes.
1057 E. Imperial Highway, Suite 509
Placentia, CA 92870
General Inquiries: firstname.lastname@example.org
Candidate Resume Submittals: email@example.com
A bit of hard searching around shows that this is not a US based company at all, but is actually based in India (the email mentions an Indian connection). Their real website is at beyondtech.in and clearly mentions the maildrop address on their contact page.

I personally wouldn't recommend giving any personal details to spammers, and I certainly wouldn't recommend giving details to a company that seems to spend some effort to conceal who they really are. But, bear in mind that there are no anti-spam laws in India which explains the high level of Indian spam messages (think SEO spam) that we see, so under Indian law they are probably not doing anything wrong, but surely if they are trading as a California entity then they need to be registered?
