Even More Craigs List Job Scam


I would like to say thank you for contacting us concerning the job opportunity we've posted on line. 

I have Great News. The position your interested in is still open, and we are in the middle of processing applications. Currently we have 2 other applications along with yours that we are considering, so you can consider yourself on the short list to be hired. 

Please help us to express-process your application by performing one of the two mandatory steps that the company must take for all new employees. Since we run both background and credit reports on all employees, you can help us by obtaining your own current credit report, speeding up the process immensely. We have found it's best if you have it in advance to make sure there are no surprises on it. 

Both myself and the company would prefer that you use This Company to acquire your credit history because they're offering the check at zero cost to you (unlike other places) and their results contain the most precise details I've come across, but feel free to use any service that suits you. 

Once you submit all of the needed information, they are going to show your own personal report. Please print it out and save it for the meeting. Please do not e-mail me the report, since it will have personal content. We can go over it when we meet in person. Should you have a lower than expected credit ratings, it will never prevent you from gaining a position with us. 

When your finished please e-mail me back at ( with the subject "My Availability" to let us know you obtained a current copy of your credit history along with your availability and we will arrange an interview. 

I'm looking forward to your quick response. 
Warm regards,
Jada B | HR Dept.

Legitimate sites don't mask the links. Legitimate job offers don't have you pull your own credit reports. Legitimate interviewers do the background checks and credit reports AFTER a job offer has been made (how can they do a background check when they don't have 90% of the information they need to do one?)

This person is simply running traffic to Credit ID Protect by posting false job openings on Craigs List and making people think they WILL get a job if they sign up for the free trial (free trial yes but it's $14.99 a month if you forget to cancel which is what the company and the scammer are counting on--so many people forget to cancel free trials!)

Credit ID Protect does have an affiliate program. The affiliate who is doing this is lowlife scum for taking advantage of people who simply need a job.

Another person/company that should be ashamed of themselves for taking advantage of the unemployed, but scammers don't have any conscience.

I should get a finders fee from Craigs List for finding all the scams ROFLMAO!!
