Money Scam
Posted by on
LAKE WORTH, FLORIDA -- This is a money mill that charges you $35.00 up front and tells you to call back in a few days. Put you on hold forever until you give up. They get to you by putting jobs on Craigs List that are non existent.

When I was nineteen, I got taken in by an 'employment service,' and it took awhile to figure out what they were doing. They would send you to employers in exchange for 50% of the first month's pay. You would work hard tpo do a good job, but at the end of the month, your were let go, due to "not quite fitting in with their image" The agency would have collected their 50% and then send you to another job, for which they received another 50% of your pay. I finally wised up and reported them to the Indiana Attorney General. I have no idea of the outcome. There are truly some really dishonest people out there.

Some employment agencies do in fact operate in this manner. They will advertise so called available jobs when they have none. All they want is your name and a contact number and will call if they get a job of any nature, at least for a short period of time. Then you hear nothing.

We have used temp to hire employees in the past. The employee many times started at a lower rate of pay with no benefits. The company paid the fees not the new employee. They could be hired immediately and the company would owe a sizeable fee at one time or the individual could work for 3 months and be eligible for hire at that time with no additional fees. I always insisted on a faxed copy of a resume and if interested briefly interviewed them before making my decision. One agency I quit using because they would send anything and everything they had. I might as well have gone out on the street and flagged down the next motorist.

It's not fair to any individual sincerely seeking employment nor to a company that spelled out exactly what they needed. I do know some prospective employees can state they will not pay a fee and if a company is interested in hiring they can pay the fee. That doesn't help someone desperate for a job. Many will agree to anything.

I failed to mention that someone in the companies the 'agency' sent workers to got a percentage of the monies received for the worker's time there. Can you say kickback?
