I'm a freelance writer and editor, and I work at home. On one of my job searches, I came across a website called Employed Online (employed-online.com). Registration was free, so I signed up and found a couple of jobs right away that I qualified for -- only to get a "sales-pitch"-y letter a few hours later for each of them that said, "Yes! The jobs you applied for are still available.... Find out more about the unique Database of Online Jobs and gain access to the Database by going here: http://OnlineJobsGalore.com."

http://OnlineJobsGalore.com takes you to one of those screaming, hyped sales pages where "a contribution of only $19.95" is required for access to the database of jobs.

Now, I'm no fan of paid sites, but some of them (Elance.com comes to mind) at least tell you upfront that they charge a fee. What screams "scam" to me here is that they wait until *after* you've applied for jobs to tell you they charge. I'll never give my money to a site that does that, and I'd stay very far away from this one. JMO.

Re: Employed-Online

AUTHOR: PCCphoenix - (United States of America)

After registering with this company, I found out that there really is a fee:  $3.95 for a three-day trial, $19.95 for a monthly membership, and $99.95 for a yearly membership.  One also cannot register for specific types of jobs, as all the links are broken and give only error messages.  Thus, what Joseph said, "We do not charge in any way for any of our services for either Employers or prospective Employees," is untrue.  Also, one cannot access the job listings until payment is made.

As for Online Jobs Galore, I checked that website out and it shows as newly-registered.  All it has is links to more Internet-based job sites!

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Employed Online is not a scam

AUTHOR: Employed Online - (U.S.A.)

Hello my name is Joseph I am the owner of Employed-Online.com. We are a job database which means we host hundreds of jobs for Employers. We are in no way affiliated with the jobs themselves except that we host them. We do not charge in any way for any of our services for either Employers or prospective Employees. Occasionally jobs will be listed that charge a fee without our knowledge. I do not allow these types of jobs to be listed but as I am human they will occasionally get through my filters.

I just wanted to clarify how my site works before my name gets tarnished.

This claim is very untrue, possibly a hoax from a competitor.

AUTHOR: William Lambert - (U.S.A.)

Hi, my name is William Lambert, and I own the website Online Jobs Galore. We do provide a Database of thousands of legitmate online jobs. The companies that post positions into our Database are all Large Corporations, Top Emoloyers and busy Webmasters. These companies post classified ads on the internet, advertising the open job positions that we host. These companies ALWAYS state this at the end of the ad: You may access the position by gaiining access to Database of Online Jobs at http://OnlineJobsGalore.com

Therefore, online jobs galore is not supposed to be receiving emails with resumes', because they were instructed from the ad to go straight to the website. The website then explains our Database of Online Jobs, and we do have the price for the Digital File right there on our home page.

Many job seekers attempt to mail resume's straight to Online Jobs Galore, thinking they can get the Database for free if they do this, however, these people are not following the instructions provided at the ad, or else they would never have emailed the administrators of the Website. We are an outsource employment agency, and we clearly explain how the process works at our site.

For those that do email us, we explain the process again, just like they were supposed to read it at the website, so now the job seeker has the same information twice. It seems that this consumer got upset because the ploy did not work. If that is not the issue, then the only other explanation is that he is a competitor and is making an attempt to damage my companies reputation so he may gain customers for his business.

Therefore, the problem lies when job seekers are not following the instructions provided in the classified ad.

This is a common problem for many employment agencies, however, this does not indicate that they are scams, this only indicates that the job seeker did not follow instructions provided in the classified ads.

Our company is a member in good standing of the Webmarketers Association, and we adhere to a strict code of ethics and conduct. You can verify this by going here: http://tinyurl.com/ddfmz5
