rexocorp / Misleading Job Ad

1 NV, United States Review updated:

On Craigslist, I applied for a position called Assistant for Paralegal. When I got an email stating I needed to fill out an online application, I preceded to do so. I got another email today stating the following:

    rexocorp - fake employment ad to steal your info
    rexo corp or rexocorp
    Asheville
    North Carolina
    United States
    rexocorp.com

    answer an ad for an admin assistant on craigslist.org. like other scams, you get an email directing you to their (brand new) website to fill out an application. don't fall for it! they will steal your info and resell it, have no idea how malicious they are, but definitely not a valid job opportunity.

    Thanks for your comment!
    I got an email from them today in regards to a receptionist position, and the email was EXACTLY the same as yours. I googled the company to see what it was all about before I applied on their website, and found your complaint.
    Thanks for saving me the trouble!!!

    Yeah, this has fishy written all over it. I just got an email back thinking I was finally on the path to employment, and they lead me to a site asking for my financial info and SSN. It was a loan application, not an application or questionnaire for employment.
    How awful it is to prey on people who just want to work and support their families. Watch yourself, people. This is not the first type of these I have gotten. One was so bad that it actually infested my laptop with all sorts of malware and I had to totally wipe the Windows off my machine and get Linux to safely surf and get my browser to even work right.

    Beware!

    Same here. Just recieved this same exact email today. Same person signed it and everything. I have had several like this one already so I was hesitant and decided to look it up. There are alot of them on craigslist. Sad that real people are out there looking for real jobs trying to save their necks and all they get is mislead and then hassled by non-stop telephone calls from schools or whoever trying to get you to spend your money. Um..hello. If im looking for employment obviously I cant afford to spend any. Just sad.

    There should be a way to stop these scam artists. They prey on people desperately seeking employment, only to hawk their own goods and services.

    Ditto all of the above - perhaps Craigslist should look into employment scams along with their erotic services scams.

    Craigslist in EVERY city, should do just as they do in larger cities (require companies to PAY for listings). This would surely weed out the crap. I recently located to NC from DC. In DC I found 3 legit jobs (government contractor positions) from craigslist. But here in NC, the listing is full of CRAP!

    I am so tired of applying for jobs on Craigslist and tons of other sites that are scams. I am so financially screwed and need to work desperately and this ads get your hopes up that you might be able to finally get some financial relief only to be let down everytime because people think its funny. It was bad enough with all the sex crap allowed on Craigslist...and all the bad apartment/housing advertising I recently went through trying to find a decent place to live. I realize y'all provide a free service, but free or not, what's the point of 99% of the advertising on here is bogus. Y'all need to check things out more carefully..find the scams..and permenantly block those people. This is past ridiculous.

    Im in Missouri. Craigslist is loaded with crap here also. I gave up using them as a job source. Its just not worth it. And still...the fake job adds come rushing in my email. Not just rexocorp but all kinds. I applied for a receptionist position at a vet clinic on monday. Got an email redirecting me to some other site with more information about the job. Beware of the ones that ask if you would like to further your education on the bottom of the job info page. Since I was considering furthering my career in veterinary study I accidentally clicked yes. I tryed to go back and change it but it would not let me. Then I got a call from some place that claimed to be a job screening place for the position I had applied for. Receptionist for a vet clinic. They asked me questions about the job and my infomation. All sounded very legit. I had no worries. Until...they asked if I had internet access. Internet access? What kind of receptionist job requires you to have internet access? A little worried but then reasured that my job application was accepted and the next step was for the hiring manager to contact me. Well...no manager contacted me. Just some telemarketer calling me from a 1800 # telling me i asked for info to further my education. I hung up on them. They've called once or twice a day for the last 4 days. SCAM! How does a job posting for a vet clinic receptionist end up being a money grubbing, furthering your educaiton, calling twice a day, harrasing company? LATEST SCAM... As far as ive seen...you get an email that tells you they only entended this job offer to so many people and they saw your resume posted and they are interested in you, once you click on the job link it will take you to a webpage with more information about the job, appearing to be some employment listing jobsite. THINGS TO LOOK FOR WITH THIS KIND OF SCAM...IT SAYS THE COMPANY IS CONFIDENTAL (###), AND THERE IS A QUESTION ON THE BOTTOM OF THE INFO PAGE THAT ASKS IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT FURTHERING YOUR EDUCATION. EVEN IF YOU CLICK NO, IT WILL TAKE YOU TO THE NEXT STEP AND THEY WILL CALL AND HARASS THE HELL OUT OF YOU. The job was a fake job listing posted to get your information. PEOPLE BECAREFUL WITH THE SO CALLED "CONFIDENTIAL" JOB SOURCES. If they are really posting a job...they more then likely will not post it confidentual. Mother always says "If it sounds too good to be true...it probably is". Got another one today. Got a lil excited at first cause it said they were offering $17 for an office position and they requested that I look into it. When I clicked on the job link that said office position, it took me to a page that looked like a employment listing jobsite. BUT...It said the company was "CONFIDENTUAL" and that same " Are you thinking about furthering your educatin question with the dot to click yes or no in was there. SCAM!

    Thank you for this! I just got the same email today for a Receptionist job here in NC. It seems as though everything I have applied for on craiglist and hotjobs has been nothing but crap. I can't tell you have many transcription jobs I have been "offered". I am glad I googled this one before responding. Thank you again!
