Post Title: Front Desk Receptionist & Administrative_Part & Full-Time
States affected: MD - maryland
I sent my resume in response to a post and received this email:
Thanks for your reply. Your next step in this hiring process is to complete our new employee questionnaire.
Job requirements: Outstanding written/oral communication skills in order to perform duties including responding to phones and taking messages, the preparation of mailings, the order and maintenance of supply amounts, elementary copying, common filing and emailing, and a basic knowledge of Microsoft Office.
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. 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 scores itself isn't very important, but the report is still required by our company.
Please complete and print your credit score by clicking
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.
I look forward to meeting with you.
I replied that I already have recent copies of my credit report, thereby I don't need to sign up for a trial membership for that site (one I've never heard of, by the way). She immediately replied:
I think you have made a mistake. Still we didn’t get your credt report.. Credit report is important for us. This is our official rule. After seeing your score we will contact you assp for the interview. There have been some concerns about the creditreport portion of the application. There are no fees to be incurred. So please go to the link below and try again:
That is obviously an auto-response email, as she didn't reply to what I said. This website requires a credit card and a free seven-day trial membership. No legit business would require applicants to use that. SCAM!

Yup, most definitely a scam.

Same thing for me!
I applied for this position as well, but in Clarksville, TN. I received the same email and I didn't email her back. No legit company would make you do this!
