I hope that this info is helpful, cause i've been working for careerexperts. Org for the past 3 weeks and was told that i will get paid on october 10th and 24th (Now i know that i will probably never get that $675. 00 owed to me) , but before working for them i never did realize to do a background check on this company and now that i have i feel like a big idiot! Everyone in the world who was duped by these or person should have the biggest lawsuit against these scammers.
