    Re: Monster.com *That's right

    This company has offered me a job some time ago (not a MCjob but manager position - supervision of several countries).
    I have received a contract by e-mail.
    When I appeared in their offices it turned out that they have changed their mind (?) and the offer is not valid anymore.
    They defined it as misunderstanding and asked me to leave.

    Today I am glad it turned out that way as I have a job I like, but that day was a nightmare.

    Monster.com *That's right

    I'd love to know if any companies have been played around with these guys or basically told flat out lies left and right?

    These guys were caught forging my name on a signature. They gave me a letter correcting the situation in which I agreed to in conjuntion with the lying account rep being fired and even turned into the police.
    ----------------

    Letter was as follows:
    Hi Rick,
    After our conversation last night, I was able to address your situation with the finance and set-up team here at Monster. We are going to keep you account active for the original contract start and end dates and no charge has been applied. The Bill that was sent out has been credited. I am sorry for this confusion and I hope you accept this solution as an apology.
    If you ever experience any difficulty with your account please contact me directly so that I may address it for you asap.

    Re: Careerbuilder - Hotjobs - Monster.com

    Why Do Job search companies allow such scammers to post on their sites. I recently bacame unemployed after working for the same company for 20 years.
    I signed up with "monster,Hotjobs and Careerbuilders to help with my new job search.
    I never used the Internet to find a job in my life untill now.
    I cant believe the crap I receive in my Inbox from these companies!! Dont they check-out the employer first ???
    Im starting to realize what the bottom line is for these search companies.....Sell The JOB POSTING no matter if its legit or not !!
    Every morning I check my Inbox there are 5 to 10 Job Search Results from these companies and at least half of the leads are obviously bogus.
    I think looking for a job is stressful enough without having to pick through a bunch of BS leads that only want your time and money!!
    I hope someone from each of these Job Search companies (Monster,Hotjobs, espesially "Careerbuilders" and a few others will take notice of these messeges and try to do a better job of weeding out this junk. Being out of work is not fun and we certainly dont need these "Scammer" job leads trying to rip us off!
    I think I'll stick to my Local Newspaper Employment Section, at least I can drive by the company and know for sure they are REAL.
    Thanks for letting me Vent A Little Steam! I feel Much Better Now !

    Careerbuilder is a piece of garbage

    Just received this one today, from an organization whose website claims to help the needy, but I'll receive 7 percent of the donations I process "just because I'm that great!" TOTAL B.S.:


    Public Wish charities part-time proposal.
    Dear ,
    Public Wish Foundation is looking for part-time (2-3 hours/day) recruits.

    1. What we need from you?
    We need the responsible and punctual person who will be taking care of regional donations. "Taking care" means to make these donations reach the destination point as fast as possible. No delays. This is so because the donations are coming to a place where they are really needed this time. If donation is late, the charity action may not be performed at the proper time. That's why we require the punctuality from our applicants.
    Must be fluent in English

    2. How does it work?
    You will be receiving tasks daily (in mornings) by e-mail. The task should be completed during the day. You shall dedicate 2-3 hours/day to complete it. If the task could not be completed this day you have to warn me 1 day before. The task will contain information on current donation passing through your hands. You will receive all details about where this donation is coming from, how to handle it, where it's going, and how to make the transfer of it.
    Two years Quickbooks experience is required

    3. Your salary and employment.
    Your will earn 7% from every donation you process. We also pay all the expenses and financial charges if such occur. We guarantee you will make $500 for the first week if you process all donations on time.
    Ability to read, analyze, and interpret general correspondence
    If you feel interested in this proposal, please reply to this email asking any questions or giving comments.

    Re: Careerbuilder - Hotjobs - Monster.com

    WATCH OUT. SCAM!!!!

    My name is Pradeep Baliarsingh and I work for a
    company called DEG Invest I found
    your resume on careerbuilder.com because we are
    searching for reliable professionals across the United
    States who are interested in a potentially lucrative
    partnership with an international firm.

    DEG Invest is a leading investition company in Germany
    and we are currently expanding our operations in the
    United States. But because of various banking and
    legal restrictions, we are unable to open commercial
    bank accounts in every state. As such, DEG Invest is
    recruiting partners to conduct simple banking
    transactions on our behalf.

    The process is simple. If you were interested in
    becoming a US partner of DEG Invest, you would sign
    an agreement that would make you an official financial
    representative of our company, able to accept invoice
    payments on our behalf. Instead of asking our
    American clients to conduct complicated international
    payment transactions (which are especially complex for
    German companies), we have them work with our
    partners to submit payments. You would then forward
    the payments to us, a simple transaction for an individual.

    DEG Invest pays its partners a 10% commission on
    every transaction. In addition, we will take care of
    any incremental tax liability you incur. Depending on
    which state you are in, and of course on how good
    business is, your monthly commissions could be as high
    as $4,000 per month.

    If you are interested in working with us, or if you
    want more information, you can contact me directly at
    my personal email address: [email protected]. I'll need your full
    name and mailing address so I can send you the
    contract and other paperwork necessary to get started.

    I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Re: Careerbuilder - Hotjobs - Monster.com

    Wasn't it Defrawy who said that, ""Mutters"?

    Here's another one getting a 4 year sentence

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4385956.stm

    eBay fraudsters sentenced to jail

    Money transfer should not be for internet transactions, say police
    Three Romanians who conned eBay customers out of thousands of pounds have been sentenced to a total of eight years' imprisonment.
    The "cell" tricked customers into paying for £300,000 worth of fictitious goods which never arrived.

    The man said to be the gang's ringleader, Nicolae Cretanu, 30, of Forest Gate, London, was given a three and a half year term for the fraud.

    His wife Adriana, 23, and George Titar, 26, both got two and a half years.

    The couple advertised everything from non-existent cars to concert tickets and used 12 aliases and an accomplice to collect the payments.

    Their accomplice Titar, of Stratford, London, collected payments from money transfer shops.



    The two-year scam was successful because buyers on eBay have to pay before they are sent their goods.

    People were told by email that they had been unsuccessful in their first bid but were offered a "second chance" to buy a similar item.

    But the goods they purchased never arrived and the trio managed to net at least £300,000 from the scam.

    The majority of the cash was sent back to the gang's accomplices in Romania in what the police described as a well-planned and sophisticated fraud.

    The racket was finally exposed after suspicious staff at money transfer firm Western Union alerted police.

    Essentially safe

    Chief Superintendent Nigel Mawer who led the operation said the fraud was operated by a "significant cell of Romanians operating in London".

    "We believe there were 3,000 victims of this fraud and this type of fraud is still continuing."

    He said that up to a £1 billion worth of fraud of this type took place in the UK a year.


    Titar was considered by the police as the gang's "foot soldier"

    And he issued a warning to potential internet auction customers: "Don't use money transfer to send money to anybody who you don't know personally.

    "It is not designed for that and Western Union support that and work with us on that," he said.

    Chief Supt Mawer added that the cell's accomplices in Romania had been arrested and were awaiting trial.

    He stressed that internet auctions were essentially safe as long as customers followed the "good guidance" on how to buy safely.

    In this case people were duped into not following those rules, he said.

    Responding to the case, eBay issued a statement saying it was sorry that anyone had suffered through their association with eBay but pointed out the transactions had not taken place on the internet site itself.

    The criminals used the site to gather information and initially to contact their victims but carried out the fraud separately

    eBay spokesman

    "As soon as we were made aware of them we took action. By working with the police we helped ensure that the prosecutions were successful, showing that crime does not pay on eBay.

    A spokesman said: "The criminals used the site to gather information and initially to contact their victims but carried out the fraud separately beyond the protected environment we provide.

    "Payments were made using Western Union money transfers, which both eBay and Western Union strongly recommend against.


    eBay says it encourages users to report anything suspicious

    "In fact, eBay.com in the U.S. has banned payment via Western Union and eBay.co.uk will soon be following suit."

    As well as pursuing the gang's "cohorts in Romania", Chief Supt Mawer pledged to pursue asset confiscation procedures against the gang with a view to creating a compensation fund for their victims.

    The sentencing comes after the trio pleaded guilty at Middlesex Guildhall Crown Court to conspiracy to obtain fraud by deception and money laundering earlier this year.

    Their arrests in May were prompted by an investigation by Scotland Yard's specialist economic crime unit.

    Needhelp,

    Unfortunately you are not done getting scammed. Not only were you too stupid to see this obvious scam coming, but when you do fall victim the only thing you can think of is to come to a site called scam.com and ask for help.

    Donít you realize that the people on here are either looking or victims like you, or people desperate to be heard. This is really your best source for advice on a real problem?

    Re: Careerbuilder - Hotjobs - Monster.com

    Unfortunately, it is out of your bank account. contact the FBI or any other federal authority. Here is how it works. They send you the checks and you cash them, forward the money western union to them, they collect, the checks are later to be found counterfiet and your account is then overdrawn by the amount of the checks. Sorry, but you have to come up with that money somewhere. Best wishes and be very careful next time. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is a scam.

    Re: Careerbuilder - Hotjobs - Monster.com

    The Federal Trade Commission is dodging their responsibilities in putting an end to phony job scam/phishing/spam schemes. It took years of dedicated complaining to get them to do their job against mortgage servicers, and it's going to take a similar concerted effort to get them to take action against bogus job offers.

    They are content to try and let Monster, et al, dance the "we're doing everything we can" dance knowing full well the vast majority of the scams that the job sites get paid for are generating millions of dollars a year for them.

    Because the FTC refuses to actually do anything, there is only one way to stop this kind of scam, and that is simply to never use or respond to any on-line job-posting site garbage and never, under any circumstances, post a resume on them.

    The companies that really need real employees (not MLM or self-employment lures) need to have their own web sites. Real jobs will be on those sites, and if they pull the cheap and easy cop out and try and use monster or careerbuilder, they should be boycotted as well or themselves spammed into silence.
