Career Experts / fraud

1 Toronto, Ontario, Canada Review updated:

I got the following email from 'careerexpertssdc@yahoo.com' after replying to a posting on craigslist in Toronto for 'Administration Assistant/Customer Service (Toronto)'


Hello, how are you? One of my clients sent me your resume and we want to follow-up

with you. Are you ready for a career change? Are you free for live or phone interviews this week? My name is Sister Mary Joseph. I am the CEO of Career Experts (helping people find top level careers in the "hidden job market" since 1995). I am really impressed with your rich work

experiences. I can tell from your experiences that you are very good working with the public, a "people person" which is exactly what we are looking for.

I have spoken to a few companies about your background and the feedback has been very positive so far. Now they wish to meet you this week. Are you available for an interview with the companies? What is your availability? Do you prefer mornings, afternoons, or evenings/weekends? Could you be available as early as tomorrow for phone interviews?

We will be working together on your job search so I would like you to know who we are and how we operate. We are a 15 year-old recruiting firm hired by many large companies who only want to

hire the best candidates at the best salary (usually $50, 000 or more) and they pay us a commission to help them find staff. The commission DOES NOT come from your salary. What you make, you keep. We do not charge you anything to find a job. I am your agent and you can ask me any questions in order to feel more confident prior to your interviews.

We will setup the interviews for you and prepare you with full job descriptions and company information but it is your responsibility to show up for the interviews and get the job. We have an 85% successful placement rate within the first week and I am confident the companies will want to meet or speak to you this week subject to your availability. I will confirm the interview times once I know your schedule.

Then I will send them your revised resume best suited for the jobs for which you are applying. Please have a look at the resume samples on our website (www.careerexperts.org) and then let me know which style you wish us to make for you.

It is safe to say we are on the same page in wanting you to get the interview and get hired this week. Good for you and good for us. I look forward to managing your career search with you. The sooner, the better. Many of my clients were hired yesterday.

I am recommending we work together so that you are not rejected in favor of someone else and each application has the most positive effect. Thank you and congratulations on your new career. God Bless You.

    This is nothing but a scam to get you to their web site so you can pay them to rewrite your resume and its not cheap.
    They send you an email which is a standard letter they send to everyone, signed by someone named Sister Mary Joseph.
    They detail it to make you think they are going to set you up with these companies that pay really well but all it comes down to is getting you to buy their services of resume writing, don't fall for it!!!

    I received the same email. How interesting that "Sister Mary Joseph" the "CEO" uses a Yahoo email address! It's kind of sad that Craig's List is so full of fruads and scam artists now.

    I just received the same email with very few negligible changes from the original wording--even the positions were written verbatim. Thanks for wasting my time, career-experts.org!

    Hello Everyone. I just received the very same email that seems to be circulating. It sucks when we, as job seekers have to come across ### of the earth con-artists like this. The week before last I had one job offer that wanted my bank account number, I called the FBI and filed a report because it was a money laundering scam from Australia. People, the only way we can help stop these bottom feeders is to file a report with your local FBI office, you can call the local agency directly and speak to a "Duty Agent", or go to the FBI website and file the report on the spot. Also, email the person who sent it to you to let them know that's what your doing, my Duty Agent suggested that. Besides, who ever heard of a freaking nun being the CEO of a Recruiting Agency?? The name on my letter was Beth Feldman. All of them should roast in hell. Good Luck to all!
