    Beware of the Help Wanted section -----------> SCAM

    Discussion started by -Rage- - Oct 22, 2003

    Here's the dilly...

    I'm looking through today's local classifieds and I spot and awesome Help Wanted ad... it reads:

    Park Ranger I Earn $14-$20 / hr. Paid training, full benefits. Call M thru F 9-5 1-800-***-****

    So I call.


    [color=363636]AA[/color]= you know
    [color=636363]S[/color]= "Shelly"


    -ring-

    [color=636363]S[/color]: State of residence?
    [color=363636]AA[/color]: Pennsylvania.
    [color=636363]S[/color]: You are calling in response to the Forest Ranger ad?
    [color=363636]AA[/color]: Yes.
    [color=636363]S[/color]: You are at a permenant residence in Pennsylvania?
    [color=363636]AA[/color]: Yes.
    [color=636363]S[/color]: You are at least 18 years of age?
    [color=363636]AA[/color]: Yes.
    [color=636363]S[/color]: Have you ever been convicted of a felony?
    [color=363636]AA[/color]: Nope.
    [color=636363]S[/color]: Do you have a form of Credit of Checking?
    [color=363636]AA[/color]: Yes, both.
    [color=636363]S[/color]: Ok.. this job is....

    She goes off about the types of jobs "available" and that a Civil Service exam is needed.
    blah blah blah.. the better you score the more you will earn. Which is all normal.

    This is where the phone call went sketchy.

    [color=636363]S[/color]: There is an exam fee $69.95 which is refundable if you fail the exam. Failing is a score of 70% or lower.
    Now, Alan, do you have the Credit card with you? I'll need your account number.

    I take out my card, fumble with it and realize something...

    [color=363636]AA[/color]: Uh, you know what, I don't actually have it on me. Can I pay with a check?
    [color=636363]S[/color]: Oh yes, but that will delay the application process from 10-14 days. Can I have the last 9 digits of your checking account?

    I realize what's going on. And that question confirmed it...

    [color=363636]AA[/color]: Uhh you know what I don't have that near me either.
    [color=636363]S[/color]: Okay, well you can call us back. My name is Shelly.

    -click-




    I'm guessing this is a total scam. The bad thing is my co-worker signed up for it and gave his card information.

    reminds me of the time I paid $500 for modelling shots and
    those fuckers told me I'd get work. They just make money off pretty people like me.
    Just because we're beautiful doesn't mean we're dumb.

    Yeah, it's hard being pretty. Especially when you're 5'9" and 190 lbs.

    "it's a neatly chisled,well-groomed, drop dead handsome face... you must be another handsome boy graduate."

    i can honestly say i've never been scammed.... but if you kids out there under 18 order from columbia house, or whatever, they can't hold you to the contract, and when you get a notice 6 years later saying if you don't respond to it, you're automatically conceding that you owe them money, don't respond to it... that makes the contract valid.
