Be careful of fake companies. Check everything you get when you are searching for work. Someone unknowing person could get taken advantage of, or worse.
Ok so I receive an email from an address beginning with 'hr@', which is later changed after I ask for their company website. I am very computer literate, first thing I do to find this company's website is google the name of their business 'Ascension Marketing Group, Inc' because any legit company like the one being described to me will have a website. right? wrong. I didn't find anything at all, except other ads just like the one I replied to on craigslist.org, on sites like monster.com and careerbuilders.com.
I get a call the next day from one woman telling me her name is "Kanya" and she is very interested in pitching me a job position with them, throwing things at me like asking me what I wanted to make, would I prefer full-time or part-time. [continued below]....
I thought ok cool, then I googled everything I had from them in my search of their website, and found no website. I googled "Ascension Marketing Group" got nothing, then added "sacramento" onto the end of that, still nothing. (they later changed their email address, and gave me a link to a cheapo, insta-webpage deal, through "wix.com") and told me it was (teamamginc.com) what happened to their original email address??
But wait, about 7 links down there caught my eye " 'Ascension Marketing Group', I can't tell if this is a scam or not" a yahoo messenging board post, or something like that. Read that, and was very surprised to find a detailed writing of one man's interview with this same place I am scheduled to go to tomorrow, his experience was very phony as well.
I then used googlemaps to find this place via google maps, I use it frequently. When you type in the full specific address like I did, a link to the business's website pops up in a little box along with an overhead map view of the place and the surrounding area. Nothing popped up this time. I zoomed all the in on the map on google I was looking at and didn't see Ascension Marketing Group anywhere within 5 miles.
However I did find a "Frontline Marketing" which occupied the entire building of which owned my address that I was given via email. I later found a report on the internet just like the other I had read, about Frontline Marketing. I will write no further about this, but I will copy and paste our entire email conversation now, and change my name and email address that is in it. Since when does moving your physical business location require total company website overhaul and using a joke website that makes little kiddie websites for newbies who don't know how to make a proper one?
