Coincidence or CYA*-incidence?
Sarah Koustrup, executive vice president for a hospitality services company in Fargo that had hired him, quickly uncovered Brito’s scam.So, if this is to be believed, Koustrup, Executive Vice President of National Hospitality Services, discovered Brito's false resume on the very same day I tipped off another executive with her company.
Brito was in a training program when they discovered he had given the company a falsified resume, Koustrup said...
The company executive wanted to emphasize that her firm has a stringent hiring and resume checking system.
"We have a system of checks and balances and we caught it fast," she said. "We're very careful on who we hire."
On December 29, I sent a message to Julie Brown, VP of Sales and Operations with National Hospitality Services, notifying her that her company was employing a conman. In her first response, she wrote back, "HR completes background checks before they hire."
The following Monday, she offered to put me in touch with someone with her Human Resources Department, to which I replied would be appreciated. Her next response was, "Thank you for letting me know. I cannot speak about employee related questions on behalf of our company for legal reasons. Based on that, I am unable to continue to respond to you."
To be clear, my goal isn't to be personally credited for this. The purpose of this site is to keep more people from being victims of a conman. But if an HR company is going to lie about their hiring practices instead of acknowledging an error and addressing steps to keep this from happening again, they are part of the problem, not part of the solution.
