Gifted Careers emailed me to inform me I was being considered for a job in California and asked me to confirm my availability online with a bogus link. Orlando, Florida
P.O. Box 618305, Orlando, FL 32861-8305
Orlando, Florida 32861
United States of America
HEADS UP! This email I rec’d today contains different email addresses, but the SAME address (a P.O. Box) as other companies mentioned here in Ripoff Report. Note the company Gifted Careers is the ‘hiring agency’ for Monkey Jar. Both have websites and both appear legit, HOWEVER that PO Box is very suspicious — it’s the same PO Box for a bogus company called Career Network Inc. that has a Ripoff Report #344758 so it looks like it’s the same scam artists under a different name. I have removed my personal identifying info mentioned in the body of the email below, let me know if you’ve received the same email. I originally saw this job on Yahoo’s Hotjobs and as of today it’s still posted.
