This is to inform you that Career Experts are the biggest pile of scam in the world.
What they want is your resume so that can trash it and then charge you a fortune for nothing at all.
I have received three messages in the last 10 minutes from a "Beth Feldman" at three different gmail addresses. I guess they have given up on YAHOO and are now sending them from gmail.
The addresses that I got them from are [protected]@gmail.com or [protected]@gmail.com.
I have email Kijiji support and they have blocked them from putting ads on their site but I sent one to Craigslist without a response. I am beginning to think that Craigslist is nothing but a farce.
Sister Mary Joseph is the emailer, representing a job placement company which sent me over 20 current openings with general names, not specific company names. Great offer, but they need you to sign up so they can rebuild your resume. email address; [protected]@yahoo.com website: www.careerexperts.org
I sent an email 5:25pm Tuesday, and received an email 4:24am on Wednesday, stating she was able to discuss with her clients, but need me to sign up. She was even giving me a break, and offering at no charge a cover & thank you letters at no charge (value $30.00).
Once I responded back asking why I should pay the $150, she sent another email stating that if I dont get a job after the 2nd interview, I would be reimbursed 100%. WOW what a deal...
Than I searched on the internet and found this site as well as /link removed/ stating this company is a scam. So I sent another email telling them of my findings, as of yet, no response, wonder if I ever will?
Be aware, many scams are out there feeding on Americans when they are at there lowest level.
SISTER Mary Joseph indeed. After I turned this company down, they instead offered me a job to answer their thousands of emails. I opened up all the downloaded info they sent, that I am supposed to send out to other victims - every single letter is just a form they use over and over. Whereas I might at some time in my life consult with a resume` service to improve the looks of my resume`, this "company" does not represent itself as a resume` service until AFTER the flattering letter and promises to put you in front of potential employers ONCE YOU PAY THEM FOR THE RESUME` service. If they were to advertise that from the very beginning, it might be ok. Instead, they sell false hope. I am willing to bet that they really Do get thousands of resumes that they cannot keep up with, collect what money they can, then when very few to nobody is getting a job, they probably shut down and reopen under a different name. I am SO SICK of all the scams on craigslist, and the internet. There are many employment agencies all over town, too, that charge the applicant, and I always wonder if they are scams. Until the economy gets better, finding a real job will be tough- making scams like this look so good. Don't fall for Career Experts- they have yet to prove anything to me other than they do not disclose they are a resume service up front, and then they try to highjack your money before providing any service, I doubt there even IS a service. I got the exact same letter as the other poster listed above.
They posted a listing for a Univeristy Administrator on Craigslist.com and I responded with my resume. I received an obvious form letter back asking when I could call in or come in for an interview. I was relocating from quite a distance and thought it was strange that they would ask me to come in for an interview. I emailed them back and said I was available for a phone interview this week. I received another response in a form letter stating that my resume was not good and they would need me to sign up for their resume services in order to place me in a job, all I had to pay was 100 dollars and they would guarantee me health benefits and a job in a week. I am so disheartened that I cannot even look for a job without scam artists around every corner.

I have many clients hired on a daily basis. I am recommending we work together so that you are not rejected in favor of someone else and each application has a positive effect. Thank you and congratulations on your new career. God Bless You.
Sister Mary Joseph, CEO
I immediately was alerted by the fact that a nun was contacting me through a recruiting service and that it seemed formulaic at best. At any rate, I clicked the link, only to be brought to a site that was asking I pay for resume writing services. I started searching and found other complaints about this company and that others had been threatened when refusing to use services and calling their bluff. As they have access to addresses, phone numbers, etc. this is extremely concerning. Be careful!! And good luck in your job search.
Harris Black, convuicted Con Man & Sex Offender is now operating under the name of "Sister Mary Joseph" CEO, of the company Careerexperts.org. He is posting fake job ads on Kijiji and has been banned already by Craigslist. Since he has been banned by Craigslist, he has to scam other people to post the jobs for him. He promises to pay you every two weeks but after your first two weeks of posting for him, he tells you to buzz off. NO ONE has ever been paid for doing his dirty work.
We, at Harris Black Watch, have been doing everything we can to slow him down and it seems to be working because for the last couple of days, he's had time to harass my wife with phone calls during the day and night. I find it funny but my wife doesn't like it much. He doesn't know what to say so he just calls and hangs up. About 25 times, so far, in the last three days. As of tonight, I will put my phone on Call-Forwarding to his mother's number.
Anyone else who is being harassed by telephone by this useless imbecile can contact me through www.harrisblackwatch.com and I will give you his mother's phone number so that you can also put your phone on Call-Forward. Let's fix it so he's harassing his own mother at 3:00 am!
I just received the exact same email (an exact duplicate) as Bob did in Toronto Canada when I applied to a job position in Asheville NC on Craig's List last night after 10 PM.
This is a scam, they only direct you to their web site to have you sign up for over $100 for them to rewrite your current resume.
