Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Thank god for Ripoff report. I too was sent a bogus interview invitation through Once I received it, I began to research the company. That's when all the warnings signals went off. First, I could not find a website anywhere for this company, heck, today every company has a web site. Second, the phone number was untraceable. I finally stumbled onto this website where I see it's happened to quite a few people. Here is the email I received from this bogus company:

We pulled your posted resume with respect to our Local Account Manager employment opportunity, and do feel as though your qualifications could fit into our success as a company. We are doing interviews this week, and are very interested in discussing what you can contribute to our team and how we envision incorporating your experience into our overall plan. If you are interested in being a part of our continued growth and success; then please call Monday or Tuesday to set up an interview.

Interviews will be held on Wednesday or Thursday of this week. American Printing Inc (API) is a privately held company specializing in products with school and teams in local areas. We are in 14 states up and down the east coast and now growing in your local market! Our account base ranges from the high schools, colleges, universities; all the way up to the semi-pro and professional teams. Our in house designed and published products include: media guides, programs, sports posters, game tickets, banners, pocket schedules, coupon books, and student cards.

The newest sector of our company is focused primarily on fund raising with the schools through the partnering with various booster clubs and fund raising organizations driving revenues for these local schools. What makes us different then another marketing or promotional company is that we are giving all of our products completely free of charge to the school therefore our sponsors cover the entire cost for the schools. As an Account Manager for A.P.I. your responsibilities would include: sales, customer service, account management, public relations, as well as new business development.

Our regional managers have developed your local territory, so you would take over existing accounts, maintain a book of business but of course grow the market. This position not only requires contact with our schools and teams but also to their sponsors whom are incurring the cost for our product development. Some of our current sponsors for our existing accounts include: Russell Athletics, Under Armour, Papa-Johns Pizza, Subway, Quizno's, Pepsi, Honda, and Bank of America (just to name a few). As well as more localized companies such as hospitals, car dealerships, restaurants, and other independently owned and operated businesses. We have put together a compensation package which includes a base salary plus commission structure based on a quota system.

The combination translates to our average account executive making 50k-55k their first year, although we certainly do have first year representatives that are exceeding our quotas and making closer to 75k to 80k+ but that is above average. This package does include medical benefits, performance bonuses, and a retirement plan in addition to the compensation. So if our career overview interests you, and you feel as though you can contribute to our continued growth please call to set up an interview.

Please don't re-email us we already have your resume. We have not posted this position, we hand-picked our candidates from your work experience, location, and posted resume. We would not have contacted you, if you did not meet our qualifications. Keep in mind we have a regional offices in 14 different states but the position is a LOCAL territory (a 50 mile radius of your zip code). We have regional managers available at the number below for more information when you call.

Since we are a privately held company and we have licensed agreements with our schools and sponsors (with confidentiality clauses), our company has an Intranet which has codes for our account representatives and customers. That is why we have managers available to call for more details on our career opportunity, further intranet access, and we are certainly very happy to answer any more questions you have before you come in! Also please note this is a read-only email sent to you and delivered via monster, so you will not be able to respond back directly to the blue link of this email. We look forward to hearing from you! Thank You, Casey Smith A.P.I. 855-386-1410 (Toll-Free)
