  1. Sounds suspicious to me. They don’t have a contact number for you to call. I’ve never had a job ask that. All they should need is your social security number to do a background check.

  2. Don’t complete it. It’s a scam. I read about those awhile ago. They set them up to steal your information. They usually post for standard positions like administrative assistants, receptionists, etc.

  3. thanks everyone who answered.
    so it has come to this?
    we can’t even fill out for jobs without someone trying to scam.
    this is like the 2nd scam ive encountered.
    the first is me paying 200 in order to get trained.
    smh.

  4. Yes, be careful. However, some jobs now require credit checks to gain employment. Shyt in the Army, we require one every 5 years in order to maintain your position as well.

  5. Personally, I wouldn’t advise you to give them any more information. The run on sentences are a red flag. I spotted commas where new sentences were supposed to be started. After residency, it says “in order.” That should be a new sentence. Criminals aren’t the best writers, and job descriptions and any type of instructions have to be error free.

    Did they mean Rodgers or Rogers, I can’t.

    Where did you hear about this job anyway?

    1. ^yeah!
      i noticed that too man!
      that first sentence especially.
      they randomly sent me a email.
      i thought maybe it was because i’m on monster,
      but the subject email was:

      Re: Interview Booking for Receptionist Required
