American Careers had an advertisement for employment on Craigslist. They gave a number to contact for hiring details, and how to apply.

The number was a recording which stated i must send a $35 money order, (which I've never heard of doing for employment) and there would be a gauranteed refund.

I sent the money to the address that was given to me. This is a scam. How do I get my money back? I have a copy of the letter that I sent with the money order, as well as my money order receipt.

American Careers is here to help.

AUTHOR: Yvonne Foxworth - ()

OK folks; please let me try to shed a little light on this thread.

First off, my name is Yvonne Foxworth. I'm a Career Counselor at American Careers (NYC offices). For the doubters out there, I must say sorry for any confusion or misconceptions about us, but we certainly are NOT a scam. I've been here for 6 yrs. Indeed, I'm very happy with the results I have personally obtained from the many Applicants I've assisted to gain employment at various airports/airlines across the USA. Success stories with many different types of Positions, at varying pay rates, anywhere from $14 to $22 / hour.

Regarding our Service, we simply assist Applicants obtain employment through the information that we email/mail them to get them started with the Application Process. We then follow up with phone support via our Career Counselors to assist them in every aspect of the Application Process (Application, Resume, Cover Letters, Thank You Letters, Interviewing Techniques, etc) through our Airline Career Development Guide & our Airline Hiring Update, which includes current listings of Airline Positions & descriptions which the Applicant may then apply for at various Airlines. We will attempt to obtain as many interviews for the Applicant as we possibly can. The $39 one-time fee we charge is refundable in the event we are unable to obtain employment for the Applicant.  Details are included in the paperwork the Applicant receives.  This is a vast amount of information & assistance which could potentially require many hours to perform individually. Please visit our website at:


We have many success stories here with regard to Applicants who have taken the time & effort to read / follow the instructions listed in our Program, and have indeed obtained employment at various Airports across the USA. Obtaining employment takes time and effort. If Applicants are not willing to follow instructions or contact us for help, we can't possibly assist in those efforts. I will gladly personally assist anyone out there in their efforts to obtain employment. Please feel free to view our BBB review in MD.

I got a job with the help of American Careers

AUTHOR: Allan - (USA)

I found the advertisement on Craigslist too.  I sent in my $35.00 and worked with the Career Advisers there and now I work at IAD.  It is not a scam.  If you sent in your money you will receive help from them, they are for real.
