*Consumer Comment: me too!! thank you!!!

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

I received the following email from PIV Corp...


Thank you for your interest in our open position. The job responsibilities include answering the phone, scheduling meetings, and running company errands such as buying office supplies and making bank deposits. You will be supplied with a company car and credit card to make supply purchases with.

I would like to set up an interview with you for early next week. Please give me a call or email me back to schedule a time. I will be in and out of meetings the next few days so if I don't answer the phone please leave me a voicemail.

In the past we have had a few bad experiences with prior employees taking advantage of having access to a company credit card, so before we can schedule an interview, we need to get a credit check. You must use the credit reporting agency we specify to obtain this information. It is provided for free and run by a BBB accredited business. The company has been featured on TV numerous times and are the most trusted name in credit reporting. We realize not everyone has excellent credit during these tough economic times and having a low credit score doesn't disqualify you for your position with our company. My credit wasn't good either when I came to work here, so please don't be to focused on it. You don't have to email me the credit report, just bring it with you to your interview.

Here is the link to the credit check.

Please send me your interview availability times or give me a call after you have gotten your report.

I am looking forward to speaking with you.

This is a scam & is not a real company. Funny how the fax & phone line in the email are the same number & when you call them you get a recording telling you to follow the instructions in this BS email. If you look up the website it is vague at best, has no listed address & the listed phone number is out of service. This is nothing more than a scam to get you to go to free credit report website & god only knows what they will do with your information if they get it. I am so freaking tired of thes scams, I need a real job not this kind of BS & am also reporting them to the BBB & the Atty Generals office...

me too!! thank you!!!

AUTHOR: Tabs - (U.S.A.)

i received an email from the same person today. it read a little bit different. but i'm grateful i had the instince to do some research before i decided to try and get my free credit report! i just wanted to thank you for your posting!! here is what my letter said!::


Thanks for your interest in the job opening, I really appreciate it. Since youre reading this, it means I think you are right for the job. However, before we move ahead I wanted to get something important out of the way.

This job is NOT for everybody.

  • Are you lazy? This job isnt for you.
  • Do you need somebody to hold your hand? This job isnt for you.
  • Do you have a problem following simple instructions? This job isnt for you.
  • Are you against being part of a fun and creative team? This job isnt for you.
  • Do you take yourself too seriously (i.e. - no sense of humor)? This job isnt for you.

Weve had bad experiences with Craigslist applicants in the past, so Im doing my best to avoid making the same mistake twice. As long as you arent lazy, know how to laugh once in a while and can follow instructions youll fit right in with our team.

In terms of the job itself, heres what we are offering you:

  • Strong pay Base pay is between $15 an hour and $18 an hour, depending on your experience
  • Great benefits Full health and dental coverage as well as retirement plans (401K or IRA)
  • Expense account When you make the occasional business purchase, you are allowed to use a business issued credit card
  • Immediate opening - We would like to fill this position within the next week.

Heres what you need to do now (before we line up an interview):

*Go to this website:

When the page opens up, request a complementary credit report. The credit bureaus will tell us which applicants have requested the report, and we schedule interviews based on the list they provide us with.

This is important: Your credit rating is NOT a consideration during the hiring process. This is simply part of the file we have to keep for new employees in order to stay compliant.

Well ask you to bring the actual report with you to the interview in order to add it to your employment file. PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL IT TO US IN ADVANCE.

Dont forget to use the link I just gave you; this is how we track which applicants follow instructions. Remember, being able to follow basic instructions is very important to us.

All interviews will be coordinated over the next 4 days. We are interviewing and hiring on a first come, first serve basis. If you want to be considered, I urge you to request your credit report now.

P.S. Please dont contact us regarding the process of your application. We will contact you at our earliest convenience.

Rest assured, if you are reading this email then I personally felt you would be a good fit for the job.

To avoid missing the interviewing process, its in your best interest to request your credit report immediately.
