As many of you know, I’m in the middle of an all-out job-hunt, but not for a Finance Manager position. My work has been in manufacturing. Fortunately, the economy is great, jobs are plentiful, benefits are fantastic, and compensation is outstanding …
And I’m occasionally sarcastic!
If you’ve been in the job market, you know that one gets a lot of crazy emails, solicitations, and invitations to pay large sums of money to have Company X put together the perfect resume and find the best job for you. (Of course, who doesn’t have a lot of available cash when one is looking for gainful employment?
Today, I received the following email and thought I’d pass on an “opportunity” – word for word out of my gmail [except where I've withheld the company name]:
Michael Monaghan[name withheld], I am [name withheld]. I am manager of our HR department. I found your resumeso We sure you’re qualified for the vacancy of Finance Manager.To obtain more information about this post, follow this site:
This could be the nice addon to your main work.

Since I don’t have the experience for the Finance Manager position, I thought someone reading my blog out there, might want to send your “resumeso” and make this “… the nice addon to your main work. If you are want to start.”
Before you send your “resumeso,” I thought you should know that I did your due diligence by Googleing this organization (you’re welcome), and this is what I found:
Name Withheld, LLC
Complaint 59804 Details
[Name Withheld, LLC] is a total scam, and I know that they deal in stolen and forged checks. I started to work for them processing checks; the first check they sent me had been stolen. I checked with the party on whose account the check was drawn, and they denied ever having written the check or having any dealings with [Name Withheld, LLC]. Stay away from these folks. They are bad actors.
