I was on craigslist looking for a job. I came across a job posting about "Office Helper" and I had sent an email to job-qq2vm-1903481418@craigslist.org. It wasn't until the 7th (I saw it the next day) I got an email reply from jacob12@prawlmedia.com. This is what it said:

"

At first I was a little uncomfortable about the fact that
I had to take a ridiculous 10 question IQ test just to apply. Even worse, I had to
submit my cell number to receive a code TEXTED TO ME to verify my score. Never have I had to
experience such a bizarre application method. That should have been my first sign.
But apparently they needed my number to call me to provide the time, location,
and contact for my interview.
Got the call and got what I needed.

I made the announcement on my social network page about the interview.
A good friend asked me who it was with and I gave him a hint. He knew
who it was and linked me to this site. I read as many complaints about
Liberty National as I could, hoping that the clerical/secretarial job
was legit.

I was wrong. I showed up, expecting a 1 on 1 interview, instead I got
a group "presentation." Does that ring a bell? The moment this lady pulled
up Microsoft Power Point, my stomach started to turn. I could have walked out
immediately but I'm glad I stayed behind. Her presentation just provided more
ammunition for these complaints. If you are in Alabama and reading this, time
for a hearty laugh.

"When I first started working with the insurance industry, the first company
I had worked for was bad. They lied to their clients and their employees. ...
We have offices in Alabama but they will be closing soon and we'll be moving to
Texas."

By the second time she asked for questions I asked her...
Me: So when do I get interviewed for the office helper position?
Lady: Um, I'm sorry. We're interviewing for Sales Agents.
Me: Ok, just to let you know I'm not applying for sales.
Lady: Would you like my card just in case you change your mind?
Me: No.

When I came home, upset and severely disappointed, I checked my inbox. Lo and
behold, an email from richardsalivari@mediaprawler.com:

"How are you? Its wonderful to hear from you.


I appreciate you e-mailing us.
