A recent jobs listing (April 29) on Craigslist Gainesville which advertised for couriers in the area with the company Package Delivered (packagedelivered.com) requires that you use Credit Report America (creditreportameric.com) as part of the application process.
Skeptical of this, I ran a search on Credit Report America scam and found postings here. So, a little FYI, Package Delivered makes itself look legit with a fully functional website, but obviously its just another scam that works in tandem with CRA.
I have pasted the e-mail I got from Package Delivered. The sender is Gloria Nellson (firstname.lastname@example.org)
