Career Network, Inc / possible fraud
Career-network.com advertises employment opportunities on Craigslist. The company name is never mentioned. If anyone ever got a job through this company, I would like to hear about it. After responding to the ad, you are directed to one of several shell websites under the banner of career-network.com to fill out your personal information including your address and what cell phone carrier you use as well as whether you own your own business, whether you indent to pursue more education, what your credit score is etc.
After replying to this, a second e-mail directs you confirm the previous information and provide personal information about your references. No additional information about the position, such as location, company, etc. is provided. It has a very bad smell about it; it is probably just an elaborate phishing scam.
The company operates under several aliases and uses an Orlando FL snail-mailbox for correspondence. According to one investigator, the company is registered in Delaware.
"A company spokesman alleged on aboutus.com they are incorporated in Delaware. I found a recent incorporation of a Career Network Inc., File Number: 4545479, Incorporation Date / Formation Date: 05/09/2008."
The aliases include:
Another investigator reported:
"On the "corporate" site http://www.careernetworksite.net/ they give the address 1001 Craig Rd, Suite 240; St. Louis, MO 63146. Telephone: [protected]. No TOS and not incorporated in Missourri.
On their main working site http://www.careernetworkjobs.com TOS it says they are in Orange County, Florida jurisdiction. Both sites domain registration is anonymous via Network Solutions."
These are believed to be subsidiaries of another notorious scamming company, Internet Solutions Corp.
