    Default (who is) Hurricane Electric Internet Services?

    I applied for a tech support position they posted on craigslist. They said they were expanding to Texas bla bla. A nice lady called me and asked would I be willing to take a test and I said yes. Shes said it was 1-2 hr. basic grammar and math stuff. I thought that was kinda odd but was excited because I got a call from an employer. Well I almost got scammed once today from another ad. It got me thinking and it sure sounds like this company is using me to take a survey they can cash out on. I'm not gonna go.

    I like how it says "free IPv6 certifications!".
    So what do ya'll think? Since we're on the subject does anyone know any other tech job opening scam types and what to look for so I don't get totally ruined by identity theft.

    Thanks.

    They look legit. Network World has an article about them, as well as wikipedia.

    Hurricane Electric is a legit company. Whether or not the job add you applied to was real or not I have no idea.

    I use their public route server from time to time. Telnet route-server.he.net.
    An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made.
