Comments from other victims:


February 28, 2007, from Emily:

I have a resume posted on Careerbuilder.com. I am currently employed but wanted to see if the grass was greener any where else. In the last two weeks I have received emails from toospoiled and now today from Administrative Solutions.

When I first received the email from Toospoiled I was excited. Being a recent graduate with a degree in theatre it seemed right up my alley. I mentioned the email to my husband and he encouraged me to go for it. So I filled out the form on the website. After I had entered my information my husband mentioned that I should try google-ing the company to make sure they're reputable. A little late but better than never I did a little research and of course found it to be reported as a scam all over the net.

A few days later I received another email from Toospoiled giving me log in information and asking me for more information. I just deleted it. Then in another day or two I got the same email again and I replied stating that I had done some research and found compelling arguments that Toospoiled was a scam and asked to be promptly removed from their database. I haven't heard back from them.

Just today I have received a new email from Administrative Solutions that is formatted in exactly the same way as the Toospoiled email and their website are remarkably similar.

Oh and one other tidbit. I marked that I was not interested in education at this time, being that I just received my BA this past May, but I received and interesting phone call yesterday. When I answered the man mentioned that I had recently inquired about furthering my education online. I told him that I had not and asked where he got my information to which he had no reply other than that I had requested information online. I proceeded to explain to him that I had not made any such request as I had just graduated less than a year ago. He quickly ended the call. The number that showed up on my caller ID was 949-706-2266.

Note from CFR:

The phone number, 949-706-2266, is an unlisted number in Newport Beach, CA. This suggests that the scammers behind TooSpoiled.com are based in Newport Beach, or have an operation there.


April 2007:

I have gotten similar emails from Worldvoicenews and toospoiled as well. CareerBuilder.com is the site my resume is posted on, but the have nowhere to forward or complain about scams.
Thanks,
Mary

February 2007, from Anita:

I have received two e-mails from AdminSolutionsGroup.net and one today from eBandSearch.com and one last week from www.TooSpoiled.com. These emails did not start, until I posted my resume on Hotjobs.com. Now, I did receive legitimate offers from two companies, but the remaining offers are from the companied listed in this email which I think is a scam of some sort.

I also noticed at the AdminsolutionsGroup site, there were a lot of pop-ups and they ask you about furthering your education. I am already in school, so I didn't check any of those boxes.

It is a shame you can't feel free to post your resume online for the purpose of employment or to seek a better career.


February 2007, from Susanne:

I sent my resume to both ebandsearch and adminsolutions. I wish that I had done more research before so. After sending my resume to adminsolutions I received another job offer from them for a completely different position. I can't say for sure, but I am 99% sure these are both scams. I also received an offer from marcmichelsen@world-cash-utils.com , maybe you can give me some insight to this one as well. Thanks, Susanne


February 2007, from Scott:

Dear CFR -

I have my resume posted on the major job boards - Monster, HotJobs, career Builder and just received an e-mail from Joyce Tomlinson@ebandsearch.com

It looked suspicious when I read through the e-mail and your website confirmed my suspicions. Like other job seekers with resumes posted, my address, phone, and e-mail are "out there", but no personal info such as ss# or date of birth.

I appreciate your diligence and info. If you need further info, please let me know.

Thanks, Scott


March 2007,from Heather:

Hello I have received several emails from the following Good Grades Now and Worldcareersite.com. A recruiter from this supposed Worldcareersite.com called me and asked me a series of questions even requesting my mailing address. I felt a bit suspicious because I have never had a recruiter contact me this way. They sent a link to my email address and one I clicked on it there were a series of unrelated questions about school loans which alarmed me. If anyone receives a phone call or email from them please be advised. I have learned that reputable companies do not contact you this way and when in doubt Google the company and do some investigating before disclosing ANY information.
