Fraudulent Invitation to Interview

Over the last two days, I received two invitations from different clients to interview. As soon as I received the notificatation email from oDesk and went to "Notifications", the invitation was withdrawn by client (in a matter of minutes). The first time this happened, I was really confused. The second time it happened, I was confounded but quickly realized it's a scam from clients in order to get you to go to another site, for what I can only describe as a nauseaous opportunity. I feel that using oDesk in this manner is fraudulent. NOTE TO CLIENTS: If you are not going to interview or hire the applicant, PLEASE STOP WASTING OUR TIME!!!!!! Below is the exact same email I received from two different clients. First is the notification from oDesk and the second is message from client, which had identical typos, and leads me to believe it's actually the same client.
