www.freescore360.com (along with www.creditreport.com) is advertising very convincing looking jobs on craigslist. If you apply for the job you get an email response asking you to submit to a credit report using only their website. A quick search of these sites shows that they ask for your credit card details and then charge you monthly without your consent.
In other words, the job postings are fake. There are no jobs waiting, just these websites waiting to steal your money.

Thank you for posting this! I had a bad feeling about this from the start. I thought it was suspicious that I could find no information about the location of this supposedly local company (JJ Stoneworks) on their website or online. Also, I noticed they were advertising jobs on sites in other cities & other states, yet they do not appear to be a national chain. But against my intuition, I applied anyway.
And then I received an e-mail response today from their HR representative that did not have any formal greeting ("Dear So-and-So") but rather a casual yet generic "How are you Jane Doe?" Being addressed by both first and last name was a sign to me that the e-mail might be computer-generated. Another HUGE red flag: a mention that only 16 applicants applied for this job (Really? In an area with an unemployment rate of more than 12%, only 16 people applied for a job that supposedly pays $120 for a 4-hour day?? Really!!) However, the final nail in the coffin was that link to the freescore360 website and an insistance that I use it to obtain my own credit score. For the record, most companies nowadays require a credit check, so this in & of itself is not out of the ordinary. But legitimate companies will have you check a little box on their application that will authorize them to initiate their own credit check during their hiring process.

FYI: the initial job ad was titled "Customer service" and stated: "Person needed must be able to talk on phone and help people with problems. Will train. Very relaxed informal atmosphere. $120 or more possible for working 4 hours morning or evening." That should have been another clue: $30+/hr. for answering phones??? I apparently overlooked that part in my haste to visit their website. Had I done the math, I wouldn't have wasted my time on such an obvious scam.

I applied for a job posted on craigslist and received a reply from the "Human Resources" department today, a Sunday, which was the first red flag. The second red flag was that they used the name from my e-mail address rather than the name on my résumé. The name of the company is supposedly grp-management. They actually have a semi-legitimate looking website. When I read the e-mail they stated in order to get the job I had to provide my credit score. I googled the website "freescore360.com" and was sent here.

It's so sad that craigslist is so clogged with fake job offers, fake apartments and fake items for sale. Don't fall for this SCAM!!

Thank you very much for this information!!! After applying for a job I received a reply right the next day (Saturday). And I might have neglected the timing, since I don't know if their HR is working overtime, but they directed me to this website to check my credit score. I read at the site that they're crediting my card after 30 days unless I call them, so I was about to do it. But something stopped me and I googled the company first! I was shocked and so relieved to find out that it's a scam! Thanks to Google and websites like yours!

I agree this is definitely some form of scam. I did not apply for a job however I was recently on Craigslist apartment hunting and several individuals are requesting consumers go to freescore360.com and pull a copy of their credit report. I knew this was a scam from the start, I guess people will do anything for a quick buck.
