Career Systems, Inc. Aka: Www.careernetwork.com They took my personal information and sold it to multiple telemarketers who have called my house 10 times a day! Orlando Florida Internet
*Author of original report: The contact person listed below is emailing me still trying to scam me! Beware of this person!
They had very legitimate-looking job postings on hotjobs.com and yahoojobs.com and I applied for a job which took me to their website.
After I applied for the job, I received a few emails from them asking me to log in and update and verify my information including references and education. They said they were in the preliminary stages of my application.
I clicked on the link with my user name and password and added personal and professional references to my application.
That very afternoon, my former employer and all 4 of my references I listed on their form called or emailed me saying that they received an email with a link to 'rate' me as a candiate that seemed suspicious.
My former boss was floored by all of the spelling errors on the form. She immediately called me thinking it was a scam.
I told her that it was a legitimate site as far as I could tell and to go ahead and fill out the form if she didn't mind. What a sucker I was!!! I just really wanted to believe that job could be mine & didn't want to do anything to hold up my application!
That evening, the phone calls started: Multiple calls from telemarketers wanting me to 'furthur my education' or give them more information about my application for employment (verify info) with broken English and a total lack of professionalism.
I realized I had been totally SCAMMED and the worst thing is that they have all of my personal information and references AND contacted my bosses, co-workers and friends via email.
I am afraid to trust any of the job sites now and I am very concerned about all of my personal information being sold and I am sick that I exploited all of my friends and employers by having them 'rate' me.
