I am not sure myself how a company like Career Network can continue to operate so many fake job websites and still be in business.
Here's an email I received today in my regular inbox. I purposely changed the URL so it does not give the company or others any sort of self identifying information but the email remains intact as written by the scam type people.
First the email and then the comments:
I am looking for Customer Service Representatives. Job duties will include order entry, tracking shipments, account management, communicating with customers via phone and e-mail on a daily basis, project management, creating customer reports in MS Excel and tracking customer activity. This position offers $17-$20/hour plus benefits, which we can discuss at the time you decide to interview.
John, to avoid being flooded with applications and responses, I have only extended this opportunity to a few people. Your online resume caught my attention, and I would like to start the interview process as soon as I possibly can. I am eager to hear back from you today, if at all possible. By selecting the hyperlink below, you can view more information about the position, benefits offered, our company, and send in your application as an interested candidate.

From what I've learned by fellow persons who research companies, Career Network is owned by a company called "Three Stars" with an extensive and somewhat convincing web page online about how great the company is supposed to be.
It's also full of pretty people with first name last name initial so you can supposedly get warm and cuddly with the fact they have "real" errr, fake people working for this alleged company.
Go here to read up more on this what seems to be completely fake company.
And can you believe all the company has with all this glitz and glamorous website there is no telephone number to contact them whatsoever. In my search about the company I found absolutely no person with a first and last name or email address either. That's just amazing to me and reeks of fraud right there.
Here's a link provided on the alleged company home page to contact them. Notice there's no telephone number nor physical address mentioned on the website whatsoever though it's supposedly run outside of Orlando, Florida.
I would like to know...just how can this company continue to operate with so many fake jobs as shown in some of the prior links provided about this shameful company?
I have to wonder what the motivation or drive is for this sort of scam. I realize what my goal is and that is to expose email scams and fake job companies.
What do they gain by this? People coerced into giving out lots of full information that can be used for fraud? Anyone out there have anything good to say about this company? I welcome it in comments.
Plus, please feel free to comment further as well like you've been doing. I appreciate any and call comments. I only enforce comment moderation to reduce spammers that come in here with comments off base.
I wish everyone and safe and happy week. Good luck with your personal job search as well. I know I'm still looking myself for work.
