The company WAK Solutions offered me a job as a phone dispatcher earlier this month. A couple weeks later, they decided that it was necessary to "run a background check" and I scanned them a copy of my Social Security card, Drivers License and a copy of my certified birth certificate. They are claiming I don't exist which is preposterous. They say they can't find anything on me, though my name or SS has not changed since the day I was born. This was nothing but a ploy to get a hold of my SS # and DL #, possibly for ID theft purposes. I am on guard about this since this happened to me almost 2 years ago. Suffice it to say, I didnt get the job once they got all of my sensitive info. Kelsie (which is likely not her real name) has the final say and is the only one I have dealt with. This stinks of a total scam to have a job, then suddenly lose my job because they can't verify that I am a US citizen. As if being born and raised in the state of Texas were not enough. I am very wary of these people and this will have to be wary of identity theft now that this woman is in possession of my personal info.
I have all email and messenger correspondence, stating the job was mine until I had to hand over sensitive info, should this escalate. Also, WAK solutions says they cannot find any info proving I am a real person, though I have lived in a dozen apartments, applied for credit cards and jobs that all ran complete background checks and found that I am indeed a real person. Do not trust Kelsie or WAK solutions.
