@TheSteve I see several red flags based on your description of your interactions. If you check Cloudera's Careers page there is a section on security and privacy of our candidates with more information about our recruiting practices.
Cloudera Recruiters will:
Never ask you to engage in conversations that are not over the phone, email or linkedIn
Only use @cloudera.com email accounts
Never ask you about your age, gender, religion
Never ask you to submit over email any identifying information including social security numbers, drivers license passport numbers or credit card numbers
- Never send a contract or job offer without first having an interview with Cloudera HR
- Never request from you a payment or deposit of any kind
If you have received recruiting communications that appear suspicious, please forward the suspicious emails to firstname.lastname@example.org
