I read a similar post about Career Networks or The internet company on here. Really similar, in fact the same manager who was contacting her regarding the "job" had the same email address BrianH@internet-company.com. I applied online where I was directed from a Craigslist ad to a waitstaff position. I was sent information regarding becoming a Media Buyer for Career Network. I went through a couple "trainging" conference calls where they gave information about the comany. I was told that I needed to post ads on CL for employers that are in their system. This way they can help filter potential employees for their clients. They are directed to the same page I went to to apply for the waistaff position and there if they choose yes or maybe regarding an advertisement (usually for school) then I receive $.25 for each opt in.
I was having a few questions and started emailing "Brian" but was getting no response. After about three emails I sent him a "is this a scam" kind of email and what do you know he emailed me back with a obviously automated response. I wrote back multiple more times and I guess I started messing with the system because they sent me to "Amanda" I now ask her all the same questions and only get one response which is also very automated. I have now sent her a very personal email calling her out on not actually being a human but just a program. We shall see what happens.
I'm not sure what they are getting out of this... I haven't paid for anything and am pretty untouched by the experience other than having a little hurt pride for being fooled into thinking it might actually be a legitimate job. I'm not sure what to classify this as but somethings not right, I know that much.
Keep you posted :)
