Please know that 31st Union and 2K never uses instant messaging apps to contact prospective employees or to conduct interviews.

If you believe you have been a victim of such a scam, you may fill out a complaint form at and detailing as much as possible. We are taking these matters very seriously and apologize for any inconvenience.
