I think ripoffreport.com just saved me from a dreadfull mistake! I was doing a little research on a company that responded to resume I put on Monster.com a fer days ago. Poof, I got a response. At first I was very eager. But Ive had problems with scams from monster.com before. Yes, i was a victim once. So, during my due dilligence I came upon a Post on "the Alliance" on ripoffreport.com. The person before me had the exact email that I recieved. I did some more digging on the net and yes, its one of those businesses that isnt what they seem to be. When ever you get an email for a job and that email doesnt say exactly what they do in the email or provide a webpage. then watch out! Your about to get scammed. Here is the email that I received:

P.S. I called the place and when I asked just what the company did and if they had any info. They become very irrate at me. Again, another sign of a scam! What "real" company gets mad at you for asking what type of business they are in? A company thats in the business of running a potential scam, that who!
