Post Title: Jones and Burke - job scam
Location: minneapolis / st paul
States affected: MN - minnesota
Responded to a blind ad for office work on craigslist, asking them where the job site was. Got an answer from them today saying they got my resume -- even though I didn't send one. Here's the spiel. The link goes to "jones7burke.info": Jones and Burke, obviously a phony job recruitment site. It's almost exactly the same con that others have received under the company name "Jones and Lang".

Same happened to me......
I sent an email for confirmation of the ad being a legit posting, never attached my resume, and this is what I received in my SPAM folder:
Subject: Your Resume #4P62 Has Been Received
Thanks for getting back to us to let us know your interest in the positions we had listed on monster.
The position your submitted resume matched to were.
Office Administrator- $22.00 - $24.00 Per Hour
Some of the responsibilities for this position.
* You will be answering the phone and taking messages when applicable
* You will be scheduling the company meetings
* Running errands for the company for things such as purchasing supplies and making bank deposits.
* While you are running errands, you will also be given one of our company credit card(s) issued in your name for all business purchases.
We are in the middle of processing applications and currently have 7 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 our company must take for all new employees. Since we run both background and credit reports on all applicants , 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 and confirm that your history is correctly listed.
Both myself and the company would prefer that you use this company - HERE - 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. WE DO NOT NEED TO KNOW YOUR SCORE.
When your finished please e-mail me back at ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) 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 contact you the beginning of next week to arrange an interview.
I'm looking forward to your quick response.

But of course...the ol' "Credit Report" scam. Sad part is so many people fall for this and get duped into losing money. Glad part is you did not fall for it!! ☺
