Job hunters beware! Advertising both on Career Builder and Craigslist there is a company posing as a placement agency that isn't. When you send them your resume, often to an email address that is @gmail.com, an auto responder replies asking you to go to their website and fill out an application.

What you are actually directed to is a site that requests your name, address, education, and CELL phone info - including the name of your carrier. There is a box to check to receive career info via text message. The site also asks if you are interested in information on furthering your education, starting a business, or improving your credit score.

If you fill out that "application" you will receive another email the next day, asking you to go to another website and give references. You will again be asked if you want to further your education, start a business, or improve your credit score. Then the site will request names, phone numbers, and email addresses for all your references.

If you fill out the references portion, in a day or two you will receive an email from Nationwide Employment Services, with fine print at the bottom saying they are Career Network, Inc., stating that in order to proceed your references must be verified. This email will send you to FreeCreditReports360.com. It's one of those companies that claims to give you free access to your credit reports and score, but then charges you an annual membership fee after the trial period they hide in the fine print.

Career Network, Inc. has many different websites: elitejobplacement.com, nationwide-careers.com, freecareerplacement.com, newjobsforlife.com, careernetworkjobs.com are the names I know of. It's all the same scam, and there are no actual job openings to apply for - it's just this company's way of getting the referral fees for convincing you to sign up for online schools, starting a business, or joining a credit report service.
