Martin and Lane Susan Lane Employment scam Flowood MS
I am currently seeking employment and received an email addressed to my proper first and last name. It seemed like a legitimate response to an online ad I may have applied for. It knew what city I was applying for the job.
I went to the web site through the link in the email and it presented a list of application pertinent questions that I completed. It also presented a calendar that you could mark to indicate date available for an interview and date for starting work. After submitting the info, it took to a page that indicated you must request a copy of your credit report for $1 and it was an ad for credit monitoring services that you must cancel in 7 days or you will be billed for further services.
Although they claim that you only have to provide them with the confirmation number after you submit the request, they claim they do not have actual access to the credit report.
I then went to their website which seemed legit and professional. It provided an address location in Flowood (MS) and a toll free number, but failed to place what state they were located in. I decided to google their company and found nothing on them.
I contacted the Secretary of State for MS and found no business name for them on record.
I called the leasing office for the address they were using and they are not in their records as having an office in their complex at that address. It appears they are using the address as a "shell" for their business location. I called their phone# and it is automated with 2 choices; one for employers seeking candidates and one for employees with issues with ther application process. I entered #1 and it said that all persons were busy and to leave a message. I am concerned that others may fall for this tactic without looking further into the company and possibly give access to their credit history.
Here is a copy of the original email I received:
