I applied for a job on Hotjobs.com and received an email from Michael Taylor (but his email address was hidden) and a link to www.lifepathjobs.net. When I couldn't find his name or any contact name or phone # on the site, I filled out the contact form and asked them to call me (I only gave my phone #, not my email address). Within minutes, a nice but very naive old man named Tom Clark called me. After his 'sales pitch' I asked him the hard questions...What exactly is he selling?? How much has he made doing this??
Turns out, he is attempting to sell the concept of improving your life and getting rid of living in a debt mentality - all for the low price of $1,700.00. You get to take a 56 week online course teaching you how to improve your life. There is no actual product. Tom pockets $1,000.00 automatically and $700 goes to the company -which appears to be Life Path or Citizen Corps (not sure which).
His personal goal is to give $300,000 to the ministry - you know, because good christians steal from the ignorant/stupid people to fatten the wallets of the holy ones running the church. Very "love thy neighbor' mentality here...
Clearly, I've got time on my hands - but that's what happens when looking for a job. I'm sick of coming across these scams and am baffled that there are people who ACTUALLY fall prey to them. Tom Clark truly believes he is selling a legitimate 'product' and is OK charging $1,700 - $1,000 of which goes directly into his pocket!
Thankfully, Tom Clark admitted that he has not made one dime off of this scam - yet. After all, he himself is only 12 weeks into the 'class'.
Here are additional websites associated with this scam:
Praying that noone falls victim to this scam and that Tom Clark finds his way to a legitimate job.
