According to the note on the actual Crosstex website...

"Warning - Fraudulent Employment Offers

Crosstex Energy has been notified that fraudulent employment advertisements have been posted on various websites and fraudulent employment offers have been made via email. These fraudulent advertisements and offers request an applicant to provide credit card and other personal information. These are FRAUDULENT communications. Crosstex Energy does not require an applicant to provide credit card information nor does Crosstex make employment offers via email.

Generally if it sounds too good to be true, then it is. Your best bet is to just delete it.

miken17soni: all I can advise is that if you are unsure, you contact Crosstex HR via their actual website (not any of the info that you received in an email) - www.crosstexenergy.com/careers

Unless you legitimately submitted a resume to them via their website, I'd be wary of anything requesting money or personal information. In this case even though the email you got seems to have a legit address for Crosstex, the phone number listed (the area code 316) is not the same one listed on their actual website. Area code 316 is a Kansas area code, and Crosstex is located in Texas and their phone numbers start with 214.

Also no legit HR department would cite "time differences" as a reason not to be able to contact you by phone. When you are recruiting globally, you have people available to call at all hours, or you make a special point of getting up early (or staying up late) one day if necessary.

This whole thing screams scam!!

Thank you so much for this information......
but this www.crosstexenergy.com/careers site is not open in india....
Report as
If you can't even access the website, and did not initially send them a resume then I'd say it's definitely a scam.

Their actual contact information though if you still want to try to call and verify is...

2501 Cedar Springs
Suite 100
Dallas, TX 75201
(214) 953-9500

That is copied directly from their official website.

If you did apply for the job, it could be legit most likely but if you didn't then it is a scam. So long as they haven't asked for any money, it can be true. Do as they said but if they ask for any 'fee' then know it is a scam.
