I'm sick of receiving interview offers from BOGUS companies, so I've decided to call these fake companies out- so YOU can save yourself the time and effort to find a legitimate job. I sent out about 10 resumes on Monster.com last night. I received a response from one at 9:00am this morning from email@example.com stating:

The Internet Company Management Team I clicked on the link, filled out very basic information and attached my resume, and was brought to a screen where I selected my interview date and time. I realized I didn't know much about this company, so I went to their website, internet-company.com to learn more. What I find telling about these 'companies', is that their website it completely devoted to HIRING new candidates, but tells very little about the products or services they provide. I've noticed most of these scams claim to work with "Fortune 500 companies", and show pictures of the staff, usually at rewards parties or vacations. This shows how "cool" and "fun" the company is, but does nothing for its credibility. All of these red flags were present on The Internet Company's website. I found absolutely NOTHING else regarding the company on google... except on Media Logic, Inc's website- medialogicinc.com. Media Logic's entire "Press" section was a blog exclusively outlining all of the 'charity work' The Internet Company has done. These are clearly two uniquely named companies working as one. I searched for information on Media Logic Inc, and found NOTHING again. However, I did notice another post on The Ripoff Report explain that QWEST marketing had changed its name to ThreeStars.... and ironically, the Contact email address on MediaLogic Inc's website is services@THREESTARSTEAM.com. After about a half hour of searching, I have connected the three companies and found that they are all QWEST, working under different names. From what I've read on this site, QWEST seems to work for online schools to find new recruits. I don't know the logistics of how QWEST operates, but why all the smoke and mirrors? Why three different names for one company? Why not be honest with the company's operations, the pay, and the type of work? What is QWEST hiding that forces them to be so secretive? Unfortunately, I don't have these answers. Needless to say, I will NOT be wasting my time by attending this interview, and I suggest you do the same! *** Another very similar company is Prestige Solutions of Casselberry, which I will also write a Ripoff Report about! ***
