We at SFA want to acknowledge that Alec Difrawi and his many job postings websites are now admitting that “training is available” for what they are marketing.
We at SFA have insisted that job seekers DESERVE to be told if they were applying for a job or a recruitment for career education.
|Job offers as such are nothing more than a marketing ploy or deceptive marketing practices by non other than Mr. Alex Difrawi aka Alec Difrawi aka Ayman A. Difrawy aka Ayman A. El-Difrawi aka Alex Simon dba Three Stars Media dba 3Starsinc dba Three Stars Inc dba Internet Solutions Corporation and his many aliases. Mr. Difrawi goal is to get you to sign up for continuing education. He should say outright what it is he’s peddling.|
Defrawi does have a history, a felony fraud conviction for a federal jobs scam in the 1990’s where he took advance fees for non-existence jobs.

You have probably found these people through dummy ads on yahoo jobs – I did, under the name Apple Staffing.
I made the mistake of applying for a Teacher’s Assistant job through Apple Staffing.
If you remember an application process that continuously asked you if you were interested in furthering your education, this is they. They obviously make money from online schools, helping to “give an edge” to “skilled job seekers.”
They operate under many names: Apple Staffing, Career Network, Three Stars Inc, Skilled Job Seekers, Extend Your Careers, The Job Push, Medialogic, etc……
You may be getting emails from “recruiters” from firstname.lastname@example.org .
These are most likely dummy recruiters & dummy jobs fishing for additional information (NEVER GIVE OUT YOUR SOCIAL) or attempting to earn a commission selling you online higher edu plans, which seems to be a biggie for them.
I am so upset. I even put names/emails/phones of 3 references. I am too ashamed to tell them.
I am suffering from a spinal injury, and half to prove I am attempting to find work on my disability plan. This job would have been too hard on my back, but I felt pushed to do it just for paperwork purposes, and now I’m in this position.
Are you getting a call from : 678-791-4200 ??
“Jill,” asking for more information (such as your social) for “verification purposes,” for a client who “chooses to remain confidential?”
These are horrible people calling you! The lowest of the low. They are located out of Orlando, Fl.
They called to get more info, even wanting a social….NO!!!
THESE PEOPLE HAVE A RATING OF AN FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF WITH THE BBB.
THESE PEOPLE HAVE LOGGED 58 COMPLAINTS WITH THE BBB IN ONE YEAR!
Even under the name Three Stars, Inc (Orlando), they’ve logged 6 complaints just from October.
So, here is the link to Career Network’s BBB Complaints & Report (58 Complaints in all) :
PLEASE, add your report to it. I will add mine today.
There are many people struggling, who are desperate and will give out any information, and who get their hopes up when “Jill” calls, asking for personal info, like a social.
Add your report! Stop them!
And, provide the BBB with any names you know are connected to them, so they can connect the dots!
Here is the link to their BBB Report:
THEIR RATING IS AN F! AN FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF!
THEY HAVE BEEN OPEN ONE YEAR AND HAVE ALREADY LOGGED 57 COMPLAINTS!
They are now operating under the name 3 Stars, Inc., but have also gotten 6 complaints at that name (just since 10/08). As the BBB warns, they operate “under a variety of different names,” and even the BBB doesn’t understand “exactly what they do.”
Career Network: Rating of F with BBB – Complain!
