You might want to review this posting. 

Over the past six weeks, I've been going through the interview/hiring process 
with NET-A-PORTER.  An offer was extended, pending final signature, last week 
to lead their US development team, but they pulled out after attempting to 
renegotiate an agreed upon salary.  NET-A-PORTER informed the recruiting 
company that they were pulling out of the US market for at least a year on 
Tuesday (6 Dec.)  I emailed both companies yesterday (7 Dec.) regarding my 
understanding of the situation, and I just got off the phone with the 
recruiting company and they informed me that the same thing happened to the two 
other Perl programmers assembled for the team.  NET-A-PORTER has not yet 
responded; and, based on the conversation I just had, I don't expect it.  If 
anyone has any questions, the recruiting company offered to discuss any direct 
inquiries regarding this situation. 

I will be writing up a more detailed outline about my experience with 
NET-A-PORTER and post that to the london.pm list, but figured this should be 
looked into before anyone else gets suckered.
