I got an email offering me a position of Customer Support Agent. They directed me to their website,

As you can see, their website sucks! A well established, reputable company, with so many clients as they claim to have (Barnes and Noble, FedEx, the United Nations, etc), would at least put some effort into creating a website that makes them look professional.

I went ahead, like the desparate-for-a-job idiot, and gave them my cell phone provider name. My gut was telling me that it is a strange question, but I ignored it. After I submitted the information, I went through 2 advertisements before they told me that my application process was finished. That's when I became sure that it's a scam.

Please beware, learn from my mistake, and I will be calling my cell phone provider tomorrow and asking them to beware of any suspicious activity on my account.

I think that they may be making part of their money from the advertisers, when an applicant clicks on their ads or something.

Don't be discouraged guys, a good job for you is waiting out there. Use this site *before* applying to a company. And trust your gut feeling! And I shall also be taking my own advise.

Thank you rip off report!!! I don't know what I would do without you.

Houston, Texas

#2 UPDATE Employee

We regret you feel that our practices are questionable, allow me to explain a little bit about ourselves

AUTHOR: Career Network - (U.S.A.)

I'm sorry that you feel our recruitment practices are questionable. I'm sure this is only due to a misunderstanding of us and our business. Allow me to clear up any confusion by explaining who we are and what it is we exactly do.

Career Network is a new job board that is free to use by both job seekers and employers. Currently, there are thousands of jobs throughout the country available for application on our network of employment sites. We actively market those opportunities to individuals who have previously expressed interest in receiving employment offers. This works as a benefit for our corporate clients as we actively reach hundreds of potential applicants who had not previously been introduced to the opportunity through traditional job ads.

To keep our services free to both job seekers and employers we do offer advertising verticals on the site. However they are completely voluntary and do not in any way affect job seekers' consideration for the listed employment opportunities. We act only as an intermediary between the applicants and the hiring companies, and do not interfere with the delivery of submitted resumes for any reason. To do so would jeopardize our relationships not only with our corporate clients but our advertising partners as well.

Let me assure you that nothing will be done with your personal information that you do not expressly authorize. Foremost, since you are applying for a position, your resume will be transmitted to the employer who will then consider you for a job based solely on your skills and education. Beyond that, we will only connect you with our promotional partners if you agree to it during the application process.

I hope this clears up any confusion you may have regarding our Web site and our recruitment services. Please feel free to contact us with any further issues or suggestions at
