ED Magedson – Founder
Identity Sweep 360Internet United States of America
I was searching for employment on craigslist in Sacramento and while I was putting in my resume to different jobs and companies listed I was happy to see I got a response. I got an email from "Terry Long", saying he "wanted to meet for an informal interview and I needed to bring my license and a printed credit report." The need of a credit report should have been a red-flag right there. When employers are not calling you back, you get a hope that a job opportunity is legit when one contacts you.
I followed the link to the credit report the company claimed they worked with. They wanted my bank info and all my other info such as address, name, and phone number.I filled it in and clicked view scores. Turns out I was about to be charged 84.00 dollars. Since I did not get a receipt or wasnt asked by the page "are you sure you want to purchase" or anything like that I figured I wouldnt get charged.
The worst part was when I tried to email the employer back, he just kept sending the same email he sent in the first place. I cancelled the identitysweep, but Im not confident I will get my money back. On the page in small writing it says you may get a refund within 1 day of purchase.When the charge post on my account its to late to cancel.
I will call again on Monday since I called at closing time on Friday. All I want is a cancellation and atleast a majority of my 84.00 dollars back for something I dont need. Next time a job or employer sends you to a credit report link online,it may be a scam. Either get your own free credit report or disregard the job or employer.
