SEO Reputation Management at its best!

On 9/26/10, I made the mistake of signing up with Resume Bouncer for their supposed service of sending my resume to recruiters throughout the state. I found it in the HoustonHires.com site, which advertises job fairs several times a year. There was a link on that site that advised anyone unable to physically attend the job fair to use Resume Bouncer to send resumes to all of the recruiters who would be at the job fair.

I did this, and paid for both my resume and another's resume to go through this service. We've both been laid off for months, and have had no success in finding any kind of work. Despite the price being cut for a supposed "special," I didn't really have the money to spend, as we're living off unemployment benefits, but it seemed like a way out of our crisis. It wasn't.

I received the two confirmation e-mails for paying. That was all. The site claims that:

"What makes Resume Bouncer worth $19.95?

Resume Bouncer will send your resume directly to hiring recruiters and executive search firms that specialize in placing career oriented professionals. No other service can get your resume in front of these recruiters, who frequently hold the keys to the "hidden" job market because they place candidates in positions that aren't always advertised in newspaper ads and traditional job boards.

How can I see what was sent to recruiters?

When your resume is successfully transmitted to your selected group of recruiters you will receive two e-mail confirmations. The first confirmation will be a copy of the e-mail message that was sent to recruiters. This e-mail message appears as though it was sent by the e-mail address you provided in the "Reply-To" box on the attachment page. The second e-mail message will be a list of names and web addresses (if available) of recruiters that received your resume.

When will I get responses from recruiters?

Responses from recruiters will begin within hours, sometimes sooner, of successfully sending your resume through Resume Bouncer."

Hours? I have yet to receive any sort of response from any recruiter or any job-related functionary. Realizing that I have been cheated, I started contacting Resume Bouncer. They have ignored all communications from me, and refuse to respond at all.

I have contacted Resume Bouncer repeatedly at contact@resumebouncer.com, which is the only listed contact point. The two receipt e-mails came from gateway@linkpt.net, but they refuse to respond either.

This "service" is a fraud, and under no circumstances should anyone use it. This can't be legal, and it's despicable that someone deliberately preys on those of us whose lives are in shambles due to layoffs.
