Is there a known scam? One where different surnames are being used? One on e-mails, another one on the bank account? It has to do with support services for teachers who are hunting for jobs. Looks like a red flag to me.

Perhaps if you gave a little more information concerning the complete background of this possible scam it just may be possible to assist you and indeed other's regarding the post you've made.

Satisfy your suspicions or walk away.
