FRAUD ALERT – August 13, 2020

Over the last few months, we have been receiving numerous phone calls from all over the country from job seekers inquiring about a remote position posted on certain social media websites like UpWork. These individuals have been receiving checks in the mail purportedly to buy equipment for the job and Skype calls have been set up to interview candidates by someone posing as a Monterey HR executive. As Founder and CEO of Monterey, I can assure you that this is a TOTAL FRAUD. There has been NO job postings listed by our Company on social media, job search websites, etc., remote or otherwise, and I urge of all those who have been scammed by these fraudulent solicitations to report this activity to the proper authorities. Monterey Oil & Gas Corporation is a legitimate oil and gas business based in Houston, Texas and we pride ourselves on our honesty and integrity in everything we do, most importantly when it comes to the treatment of our employees and those employee candidates who have a sincere interest in working with us. My apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.
