Predatory business recruiters?

So while on "vacation" last week I found myself at a hardware store buying fixtures. Some middle-aged businessman walks up and starts looking at fixtures as well, and kind of engages me in small talk. He moves the conversation a little toward my occupation, which of course I really don't specifically identify or describe in detail in such a situation. Anyway, he ends up giving me a business card and telling me he works for CITIGROUP, and that they're trying to recruit people for their investment group, largely working on resetting mortgages and such in the recent readjustment.

No, I didn't call. I have a job, and I can't work a part-time job without approval. I'm already pushing it by being a freelance bartender.

Anyway, a friend of mine mentions getting tagged in a similar situation. Apparently he was targeted, chatted up, and asked to attend some sort of interview. He was then supposed to provide some contacts, including address/phone info, for the company. These were apparently supposed to be family and friends from the area. I don't recall exactly, but I think he said something about an initial outlay of money.

Okay, I figured, I got tagged once, and no harm done. Then I'm sitting on the subway yesterday afternoon and some fellow also in his late 20's sits in a nearby seat. He notices the loop on which my badge hangs, as my badge is tucked into my shirt (pretty standard for off-base appearance, actually). It says something about the U. of MD. Anyway, he steers the conversation toward my job, kind of feeling out my education and such, and mentions that he's a comp sci guy from UMD who now works at a place called BMC Business Group. He rides for a few stops chatting and making peripheral smalltalk. Yeah, I'm reporting it to the proper agency personnel, as there's always the chance of counterintel concerns, but still...does this seem weird to anyone else? Twice in four days? Are these possibly pyramid schemes or something?

One of BMC Business Group's employees in 2005 was Jenny Q. from China using the user names happygal and watercoolerme who described it as a way to make money online by contacting Fortune 500 companies. [10] Jenny was part of the Recreational Group which organized weekend outings for Chinese workers in the DC area from 2005-2008. [11]
