https://bmo.taleo..... Applying on BMO website as an external candidate, I received a message which looked like a message for internal BMO staff. The job description read "This job description is in the process of being loaded into my hiring. Please proceed by completing this requisition and acquiring approval. Once your recruiter is assigned to this approval requisition, they will work with you to input the appropriate job description. Posted Jul 26 2015 Unposted August 7 2015 Is my home internet configured on a hosted web site that I'm not aware of. If so this is illegal and what recourse do I have, I'm not technical so how can the community help me determine this? When contacting BMO my email bounces back unacknowledged

Thank you for your post and Welcome to the Community Forums!
I understand you're concerned your home Internet maybe configured on a hosted web site that you're not aware of and your email bounces back when you try to contact them. I haven't come across any cases of companies configuring someones internal network on any hosted sites. Based on the web address you started your message with, looks like BMO is using Taleo (Human resource management system) as their recruitment tool / online application. Have you tried contacting BMO or Taleo by phone? Have you tested the site from another location other than your network for confirmation?
I'm thinking that the BMO website I direct too is on a hosted server and not truely BMOs authentic website and the recruitment link is forcing a bogus data base job descriptions, title, start and end, status etc (job specifications) to itemize.
Can a hosted server re-direct me to a cloned web sites mimicking BMOs? This would explain the manipulation of employment job descriptions, continual blocking of applicant logging in credentials, spam emails received, jobs showing up as if I applied to them when in fact I didn't, differences with dates, things not being real time but one day lag as noted with rogers phone system VOIP, continual voice messaging and not true real time calls.
I've ruled out software and hardware tampering as I recently purchased new hardware, new software and have norton running and am changing my profile, user id for many websites I frequent. The BMO web site is one of many I'm having continual log in authentication and re-direct issues when applying for job postings.
What do I have available as resources to conduct an audit on the true IP addresses used and that the applicant workflow is not being tampered with? Can internet diagnostics be done. I know their is leakage of information, pushed abusive advertising and com surrogate data pushing when conducting searches or visiting frequented web sites and relay switching.
I'm not technical so I do not understand your response. What resources do I have available to
1. Validate that my internet connection is not routing to a hosted server site. Cause the service seems like its being re-directed and interrupted.
Thank you for your post. As far as looking to validate if your connection is being routed to a hosted server. You can maybe use either an antivirus software or an anti spyware software. However It's normal for many websites to redirect visitors from their own site to other sites and should the intent be malicious, an antivirus software or anti spyware software should reduce or prevent harm. Your Internet page being routed is known as URL forwarding, in the tech world this would be similar to using your phone to call a number and having the call re-directed to another number, similar to call forwarding. In some cases you can use an antivirus software to validate these sites and go as far as block the site you're being redirected to. Regarding host servers, they're mostly used for hosting web sites and can also be used for hosting files, images, games etc.
For information on finding out why any websites are being redirected, it's always best to contact the company the site belongs to.
Hope this helps
