Notes:
I received an immediate 'canned' email from TGX Source LLC when I responded to a job posting on Craigslist (RE: Customer Service/Office Admin PostingID: 1959127939). A copy of the message is below.

PLEASE BE CAREFUL IF YOU GET A MESSAGE FROM THIS GROUP! I certainly would not click their 'assessment link'.

Dear Applicant,

Thank you for your intent on our job posting. I have received your resume. Your next step in this hiring process is complete the new employee assessment. This is an online questionnaire that allows us to get to know you better before we schedule your interview. Its called a General Cognitive Ability Test. You must score over 95% to be short listed for the job vacancy and scheduled for an interview as soon as possible.

As part of the protocols of our growing company, we have deployed measures to ensure that the company is safe from any liabilities and problems from our employees, which includes completing our online questionnaire.

In lieu to that, we have arranged a special service for our applicants to complete the test here.


Once you have completed the test please send me an email confirmation as soon as possible and then we will confirm your interview schedule. During the interview you will be asked to present the soft copy of your certification for company documentation and proof.

If you have any questions, please let me know.
All the best,

Richard Taylor

We have partnered with a online resume hosting service, so we can safely view resumes. In order to be considered for the position you must become a member and upload your resume here.

Once your resume has been submitted to the site please contact us at this email so we know it is available for viewing.

I will call and confirm your interview upon reviewing your resume. If you are no longer looking for employment please respond with your name and 'not interested' in the subject field so I can better shuffle through all the mail I get and take you off the applicant list.

TDX TGX, tomayto tomahto...thanks Flake!

This one's out of Tampa Bay. Pleased don't be duped by wastes of oxygen like these. Look for the flags like codes and quizzes online (the 5H45wT7323 code and the word "jump" in the is what sealed the deal for me. When companies moved their hiring practices online, they opened up the flood gates for scammers like this. Be smart America (but if you're here you already are smart)! This is what I got in my junk email filter (thank you MSN for blocking):

Dear Applicant,

Thank you for your interest in the position. As a recently founded and rapidly growing company, we hope to foster a fun yet efficient environment for our new employees. Unlike other companies, we believe an easy going and friendly atmosphere is facilitative to quality and actually increases productivity.

To be considered, candidates must possess strong communication/interpersonal skills, the ability to interact with people at all levels, and excellent organizational skills. Candidates must be self starters and be able to undertake responsibilities with limited supervision. They must also be able to multi-task, and have a working knowledge of MS Office. Familiarity with other types of software is a plus.

The job requires: Excellent oral and written communication skills in order to perform general administrative tasks including answering the phone and message taking, the preparation of mailings, the order and maintenance of supply quantities, copy work, emailing, filing, and typing. I will give you more specific details at the interview.

Hours: 9AM to 5PM (Can be flexed a bit if required)

General Pay: 11.00-13.00 per hour (we will decide final salary after interview based on experience)

Benefits Package: Dental and medical, eye care, life/disability insurance, tuition reimbursement after 6 months, vacation/sick time and 401k.

Due to the overwhelming amount of responses we have been receiving about the position, we have created an online free recruitment IQ Quiz to help with the sorting process. This is a online questionnaire (5 minutes) that allows us to get to know you better before we schedule your interview.

To take the Quiz, click the link: //jump.crdrpt.com/aff_c?offer_id=225&aff_id=50 Once completed, reply with your confirmation code and this personal code: 5H45wT7323

Our policy is to grow and maintain a long and mutually beneficial business relationship with our employees. In keeping with that standard, our firm offers a comprehensive benefits package that is second to none. In addition, we pay our employees higher than any competitor in this industry.

All the Best,

Richard Taylor

they also use GBX Services,

Hello,

Thank you for replying to our job listing posted on Craigslist and for taking the time to send in your resume. I am the human resources assistant for our company. From the many responses I received you have been chosen for further consideration. I have reviewed your resume and I feel that your experience would serve you well in this position should you be chosen to work with us.

I would like to schedule an interview with you this week if possible. We will be conducting interviews within the next 4 to 5 business days. Please note that our company requires all potential employees to have a credit score on file for your interview. We ask for this because you will have access to company credit cards for business expenses. You also will be given petty cash and will be passed access to the expense accounts. We request that each potential employee complete this as this ensures us that our future employee is credible, trustworthy and can be an asset of the company.

Please also note that because of the recent economy we take in to consideration that there may be some blemishes on a large portion of applicant scores. Rest assured that your credit score itself isn't very important, but the report is still required by our company.

Please complete and print your credit score by going to the following link http://freescoresonline.net/?id=0yyh3UG9

You will need to bring a copy with you to your interview. This credit score costs you nothing and is completely secure from the most trusted credit score website online.

Please complete this first step ASAP as we only have 48 hours to set up interviews. When you have completed the credit score reply to this email and we will set a time for an interview.

Congratulations on becoming a candidate for our company!

I look forward to meeting with you.

Meet Maria Stover, same old, same old.

Dear Applicant,

I appreciate you e-mailing us. In case the posting was not clear, the responsibilities of this position are as follows: you will be working alongside our current team of manegerial HR staff, also answering the phone and taking messages whenever applicable, you will be scheduling the company meetings, and running errands for the company for things such as purchasing supplies and making bank deposits (you will be provided with a company car). While you are running errands, you will also be given one of our company credit card(s) for all business purchases.

You seem definitely qualified for our job opening and I would like to take the next step with you. However, before I am able to schedule a formal meeting, my company will require that you acquire a recent (past 14-21 business days) credit report. We started this because our company had some bad incidents with prior employees taking advantage of having access to a company credit card.

Both myself and the company will prefer it that you use http://bit.ly/8Ya5Cs to acquire your check as they are offering the check at zero cost to you (unlike other places). We also discovered that their scores always report back the most factual and accurate information.

Once you submit all of the required information, they will show your personal report. Then, you need to email me the reported credit score, a phone number that you can be easily reached, and your availability schedule to arrange an interview.

I ask you to not email me the entire report, as it will have private content. If you have a lower than expected credit score, it will never prevent you from a position with us. I had a fairly low score whenever I started.

If you do not want to complete a recent credit check, unfortunately the company will require that I contact the second choice.

Personally, I am hoping to fill this position with a new friendly face as soon as possible and am looking forward to your quick response.

Have a fantastic Tuesday,

Kind Regards,

Maria Stover - HR
