WB Digital Media / Scam
In response to a craigslist ad, I recieved the email below. The scam is that once you ask for the credit report on the website given, you are automatically subscribed to a 14.95/mo "service".
Don't buy it.
HEre's the email:
--In reply to your application for the position at WB Digital Media, I would like to apologize for the delay in
--responding to your enquiry. The sheer volume of applicants from Craigslist for the position has been
--overwhelming. This has in turn had a knock on effect on the time taken to sort through the junk / spam
--applications and the serious candidates.
--I am however extremely happy to inform you that your resume or initial details have been reviewed
--positively and you have progressed to the final stage.
--We believe an employee who is well rewarded and motivated is the key to our growth oriented company, and
--for that reason our employees enjoy a competitive payment structure, health packages and additional key
--benefits to be discussed at interview stage.
--As part of our routine checks on all potential employees who have reached this stage, we require applicants to
--complete a security / credit check to verify your details.
--Please note: A negative credit rating will not be a determining factor in your eventual employment, (your
--credit itself is not relevant), a full credit check however does allow us to weed out time wasters and to verify
--accurately, legal US citizenship, employment history, social security references and a verifiable confirmation
--To get your free report we recommend using this provider or another similar trusted company.
--IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Please DO NOT under any circumstances email us your credit report as it
--contains confidential information that is purely for your own benefit.
--When the HR department contacts you again shortly with full details on the position, human resources will
--simply need some non confidential data from the report to verify your details.
--Once again, thank you for your interest in the position; we will be in further contact shortly.
