BIG TIME SCAM! THIS WEBSITE IT NOT AN EMPLOYMENT WEBSITE! LOOKS AMAZINGLY LIKE AN EMPLOYMENT WEBSITE BUT IT IS NOT! IT IS MEANT TO GET YOUR INFORMATION AND THEN CALL AND HARASS THE HELL OUT OF YOU ABOUT FURTHURING YOUR EDUCATION. THIS WEBSITE HAS ALSO BEEN REPORTED ON /link removed/ THEY HAVE ALL KINDS OF JOB LISTINGS BUT NOT A ONE OF THEM IS A REAL JOB LISTING! Today I recieved and email about a job offer. I have gotten one like it once before. Now a telemarketer calls me twice a day trying to offer to "further my education". So this time I looked it up. THIS WEBSITE IS ONE BIG SCAM! Here is the email i recieved. They use the same email. Only differnt job titles.

Your online resume caught my attention, and I would like to start the interview process as soon as I possibly can. I am looking forward to hearing from you today, if at all possible.

    I just got a similar email for a clerical position. some of the information is a little bit different than what they sent you, but what's funny is that my email was sent by "C. Benn" also haha ...the same name as the one that "sent" you the email.
    I knew it was too good to be true. it looks like they have a few versions of emails that they send to everybody.
