Company claims it was hacked
“First, I thought it was a joke,” she said.
The quick response looked legit, until she got to the line that said, “Unfortunately we do not consider candidates that have suggestive ‘ghetto’ names.”
“That’s pretty offensive,” Fields said. “I was pretty shocked and then I was hurt.”
She contacted the company who told her the outside job board was hacked.
“Seems like the typical response,” Fields said. “If someone’s in trouble on the internet, ‘Oh it’s just a hack.'”
“I just want to know why that person thought it was OK to just target one group of people,” Fields said.
The password for the outside job board site used by Mantality was compromised on August 13, 2018. The [compromise] included no access to client information or internal systems. We are currently working with law enforcement to identify the perpetrator and consider appropriate legal action. We share the anger and frustration of those who received these bogus emails.
