RSC - Recruiting and Staffing Careers (Beware)

Let me start out by saying that the following story is MY SIDE of what took place between myself and a possible fraudulent company calling themselves Recruiting and Staffing Careers.

About a week ago I found Recruiting and Staff Careers (RSC) online and filled out the necessary forms to find myself a job in the Human Resource field of employment. Upon doing so I was contacted via e-mail by a woman calling herself Sandra Reese. She claimed to be the personal assistant to Paul Rosen; supposedly this Paul Rosen is out of Chicago, but his virtual office could be anywhere. He has a 310 area code phone number, but when you call it, you are quickly directed to his website. If you insist on leaving a message for him you are not allowed to do so, as his mailbox is full.


After agreeing to set up an interview online with RSC through a virtual site given to you when you apply, I upheld my end of the agreement and met with a group of others at 1:00 p.m. EST today. Of course you are given several options and times wherein you can say you are willing to do the virtual interview. THIS IS WHERE YOU NEED TO BE ON ALERT.

Throughout the day I was given e-mail and cell phone reminders to be on time, or even to log in early. I did this. I anxiously and eagerly awaited the online interview; even if I found it to be a bit odd that we were not asked to use webcams or have microphones to interact with the principals at RSC. It made sense to me after I saw that in my 1:00 p.m. session there were over 100 names of those also being screened for the 40 coveted positions that were being offered. Obviously if we were all given access to the RSC principals there could be confusion. At one point the interviewer even states that he will speak with you one on one at the end of the process.

At approximately 1:01 p.m. a little pop up screen on the right of the main screen shows a man dressed in a professional manner calling himself Stephen Morton. He is apparently one of the RSC recruiters, and his off-screen assistant "Jennifer" is given directions to put up a screen, take down a screen, to highlight something Morton wants to point out, or simply scroll through a page. They go to great lengths to make you feel as if the interview is real enough. Morton even makes a spelling error and corrects it online.

On the left side of the full screen you have correspondence from an individual known as "Cleo" who gives the interviewees instructions and direction as to what to expect next. At one point Stephen Morton asks you an "open" question and your two-way communication abilities are accessible. They are soon cut off and the answers of most of the candidates are shown to everyone - - I noticed that the two times we were allowed open access that MY answers did not pop up. I wondered about it, as my answers were typed faster than many that were available to be seen. This was the first red flag that alerted me that this was only VIRTUAL and not a real process or at least it was recorded and not live.

Morton calls out names and answers from the left to assure the audience that this is a live interview. For some this is a feeling of security, of being a real part of the process; but for me it meant testing the system. When the next open question popped up and again my answers did not appear, I knew something was up. There are three times in the interview where Morton asks you to click on the radio button to mark your understanding of the process. Interestingly the first time this happens he tells you that 43% of the audience is experienced in the HR business and 57% will be considered entry-level. As a professional I was upset that they would even allow those who were not experienced to interview with those of us who were, as obviously if there are limited positions available you don't give them to those who are not experienced.

The thought occurred to me also that if I was one of over 100 who attended the 1:00 session, and there were multiple sessions set for the day and tomorrow, how many applicants were actually being asked to participate and why would any professional group ask anyone without experience to continue past the first qualifying question of whether or not you had experience in the field of which you were applying for? Another RED FLAG.

As we moved through the session it became clear to me that the graphics on the screen were being set up or used to look as if they were being created on the spot, or at the time of the interview. However, with the knowledge I have of graphics, I knew this was also a program, a timed program, and one that was probably set and recorded to be played and replayed over and over again. This wasn't a live interview - - and to prove it I took it again! (Of course under another name)

Well, as you probably guessed - RSC is not a real company in terms of being what they say they are. They will SELL you the right to recruit for them for a fee of $297.00 which gives you access to vacant positions (or are they) and resumes of those who are applying for jobs (or are they?) so that you can match them up, call and set up interviews, sending out candidates (supposedly like you and I who are looking for real positions) and you are the essential public relations or human resource person of contact for these individuals. YOU are the company contact. YOU make the interview happen, the company places someone, and then RSC charges a 20% fee of the annual base salary and keeps 50% while giving YOU 50%. Essentially this is 10% of the person's 1st annual salary right? EXCEPT -- in the interview Morton assures you that jobs can start as low as $25,000 for an individual and go up over the $200K mark...and he also tells you or rather shows you, that you could make between $1700-8300 per placement. Now, I'm not math wizard, but 10% of $25,000 (minimum) is $2500 and 10% of $200,000 would be $20,000.00. It doesn't add up.

NEXT -- and hold on to your credit cards. The RSC representative wants YOU to pay them $297.00 for the right to use their information to make your appointments, set up the interviews, and he guarantees you that your initial fee will be paid back when the first candidate is hired. Of course. RED RED RED FLAG! BLOOD RED.


I terminated the virtual interview and began a calling campaign to find out exactly who these people are. Believe it or not, they won't answer you when you call - - but I did get one individual to write me back. They signed off as "Admin" and when I asked for their name they refused. They became flippant, arrogant even in their exchanges with me. I offered to have them visit on air with CNN about their practices and of course they agreed, but when it came time to really set it up, they wouldn't cooperate or give me names to contact for the producers to call. Of course they wouldn't.

Just be careful folks. I think they're a bunch of losers, but the sad thing is, they're working out of Chicago! I love that city with all my heart. Just be careful if you come across Recruiting and Staffing Careers.

I just finished an "interview" like you had. I also had a bad feeling about it. For me it was more because of the "too good to be true" sense. Also, I couldn't figure how you only need to apply, and the job is yours. No real interview, nothing - just give them you money - it smelled from far!!!
I almost fell for it, as the guy in the video is very professional looking, but did not.
I'm happy I "saved" $297, even thought I still don't have a job!!
Thank you for sharing your story - so others can learn from it!!

Mootzie said...

I just got an e-mail from Samantha Reese with that whole "urgency" thing implied - you know, "Did you get my e-mail? Click this link RIGHT AWAY to schedule your online interview!" yadda yadda yadda, make big bucks, blah blah blah.

I suspected it was a scam and Googled - and here is your blog, confirming what I suspected all along. Thanks for blogging it.

It's sad that companies like these are preying upon all the jobless folks out there who desperately need work.

lauren h said...

Thank you for posting this. I was suppose to interview today but didn't because I had a weird feeling about this company and I guess my feeling was right. They have been contacting me for months on interviewing and I hadn't because the times never worked for me but I finally found a time that did and I really need a better paying job...but after reading what you had to say I don't need one that bad lol

I just googled RSC and your blog popped up, I'm a recent graduate looking for my first professional job and RSC has emailed me several times through careerbuilder. Thank you so much for sharing your experience, it saved me a lot of time and frustration.

Thanks,

Tennessee Off Road Riders said...

I don't even remember filling out their "Online application" as they had stated. Red Flag. I've received multiple E mails insisting I set my interview appointment, Red Flag. After 105 weeks of unemployment, I personally can see where anyone would get caught up in the hope of the prospective job,but it's foolishness to even make the appointment to such. Just like approximately 65% of the rest of what on Career Builder(Where in fact I do believe RSC got my info)and other job sites. But I'm 20 to 30 hours looking, seeing the same old tired things. Good Luck to us all!!

dimestoresage said...

Got their promo by email this morning. Yeah, just a con game and I appreciate your blog with the details. Now if we could just get Google to move up this link when searching RSC ;-)
Best regards,
George

Mickie said...

Thanks for posting this. I just sat through one of their "interviews" and like you I smelled something right away. Glad to know my instincts are spot-on.

Interesting side note, as soon as I registered for their "interview", (including providing my cell phone number) I started getting scam texts from "ringtone" type services. Coincidence? I think not.

Shira said...

Thanks for posting this! Right before my "interview" I did some research, and lo and behold, they sell people the right to work for them! Bizarre. Thanks so much everyone for the validation! I now know more than ever that I need to be on the alert when applying for jobs!

Walt said...

Just like everybody else, I had a bad feeling when I received their emails. I am always somewhat skeptical in these situations and the first thing I look at is BBB-nothing. Sometimes people will have a BBB logo on their site. Don't trust it. Go to BBB.com and search for them. My next red flag is that there interview links were different in the different emails. Maybe a marketing thing I thought but the url's did not contain the company name. Another red flag. So, I, Googled them and here I am. Can you say mega-scam boys and girls??? It is nice to see so many people protecting themselves!! Keep up the good work and thanks to you all for sharing.

Mine came from Samantha Kuthia and David Dowd. I knew the offer smelled, and reading your blog made it easy to stay away from. Thanks for posting!

Troy said...

What an absolute scam. I was almost fooled into going into one of their phony appointments months ago. Thank God for the internet and being able to research. There is an old proverb, "A fool and their money are soon parted". I think that applies here. I wish these guys could be prosecuted. If there is ever a class action lawsuit against these guys let me know. I'm in.

Dave said...

Hey Jude,

Great lyrics for a song, huh. I did receive the same email. looked at site, google them and your blog came up. Add me to your list of saving me time and money. This is a scam preying on people out of work. I was desperate enough to look....thanks to you I didn't waste any time. Thanks for the alert, it is appreciated!!

Thank you for posting this. I received a mail from Veronica Mason saying the same things that all of you have just posted. It did feel unreal to me tat this was the only company to respond and send so many reminder mails and calls.. Thanx again to all of you.. i did not attend the interview!!

Tara said...

OMG Thank-you you saved me time today. I set up my iterview for today at 7 p.m. I had a starnge feeling about this, so Sunday when I was in Target I asked my aunt about this company and when she was researching on line she said something about an association fee for an amount over $150, but I was still going to do the interview. I guess I can still throw my "The Game" season primere viewing party tonight. LOL! I won't be paying someone to do work. They got the wrong one. Thanks so much!!!!!

Hye Lady said...

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! You just saved me from wasting my time with these fools! It's sad that in this time of financial fear that we are scammed by these unscrupulous vultures. Thank you for your warning. Susie Pena

Katherine said...

Hello all,
Thank you to Jude for her blog and thank you to all of you for your comments. I just checked my Junk folder and, lo and behold, the infamous David Dowd was wanting to schedule an interview because my resume caught his eye. Right. Well, as I am compelled to do my "due diligence", I googled RSC Staffing and up popped Jude's blog. Keep up the good work Jude and we will honor you by continuing to do our homework.

spacystcy4 said...

Thanks for the info Jude

leland said...

I just received the email from Veronica Mason. I had a funny feeling also. thx for your blog. You should see her picture on the facebook link that she sent. real funny!!

Tareg said...

I am really glad I googled the link to the interview and found this blog. I just moved to Washington DC from Chicago and anxiously waiting for work. I knew there was something funny about this.

Thank you so much for this blog..What can we all do to close this company down?

GibbyPhD said...

My guy is called Stephen Munson - I too was skeptical about the theatrics of the LIVE interview... At about 58 minutes in, he finally answered one of my questions - mis-speaking my last name.

So it IS live enough - even though scripted and driven to take in 50 memberships in Option A or B at this time. At $297 and $384 each (depending on payment plans) -- that's pretty risky for a mom on Unemployment with maxed out credit cards.

Although I am confident I can recruit qualified people - I'd be tempted to hire myself first and Recoup the $fee as they promised. :)

Jeff said...

I was skeptical from the word, "GO". My fears were cemented when the site asked for $297.00 to get started. Typical scam. I wonder how many people have fallen for this con and how much money these thieves have collected. I would theorize RSC sets up a virtual office for their 'marks' to falsely make them believe they are actually working. After not making any hires, I could see many people quitting, thinking they were just not good enough for RSC. While RSC laughs and collects another check, or credit card number. Thank you for this post!

nbozan said...

I got the same email and I don't move on things very quickly unless I do research first and this is the first page I found and I want to thank you for this post since you saved me time! There are so many scams out there and I appreciate people like you posting this!

A. said...

I want to thank you for posting this. I thought it seemed strange from the minute I received the email from RSC and wanted to do some research first. That's when I came across your post. I will be calling CareerBuilder and will also be warning my friends and fellow job seekers.
Again, Thanks!

Carla said...

I had a feeling about this "position" when I got an email asking for an interview. I didn't remember applying for it, but when I got the email two more time, I figured something was up. I went ahead and set up an interview time and sat through about half of it. After watching the number of participants dwindle down from 364 to 263, I logged off. I was also leary when the background didn't look professional at all. Just shelves with random stacks of paper and the host looked like he hadn't shaved yet today. Was probably just wearing shorts or boxers with his suit top. Good luck to my fellow job hunters.

Parikrama said...

Why are these businesses florishing? Why isn't any one complaining? Why is no one taking action?

Parikrama said...

And also if you go on this company's website and cick on Privacy Policy you will realise that they don't have one!

Robin said...

Thank you for posting this... I just received an email and was skeptical so I googled the company name and find your blog. Sad that there are some evil people out there to want to take money from people that are already unemployed.

J said...

i just sat throught the Interview and yes was asked to pay 187 or 294 dollars.. but it is definately LIVE.. they answered all my questions live.. used my name, first and last.. but i am still concerned about the up front cost.. but yes, its a live "interview"... i mean Sales meeting..

patandfritz said...

I just got an email from them. Anyone who emails me with a job offer the first thing I do is Google it. That is how I found your blog. Thank you for posting it and saving me as well as many others our valuable time.

Kim said...

They won't leave me alone! I knew about the $297 from previous googling but your comments put it all in perspective. Thanks

Kim said...

Thanks for your comments. These people won't leave me alone despite the fact that i have told them to stop contacting me. i will forward the details to the local FBI fraud division here.

WhiteDoor said...

Thank you so much for posting this Jude. You and everyone who have left comments on this entry have just saved me hours of wasted time and frustration. I hate to see that there are companies out there like this that are taking advantage of people who are truly trying to find a position. Some people do not have your foresight or experience to know the red flags and know it is a scam. These are the same people who buy time shares.

Companies like this need to get taken down and the Bernie Madoff type of a**hole that runs it needs to go to prison where he can learn what it feels like to do what he is doing to others.

Ellen said...

I also received an e-mail from this company. Like so many others, I also Google any company contacting me regarding a job I know I am not qualified for. My e-mail came from John Gilmore and Samantha Kuthia is his assistant. Why isn't something done about these sharks?

RattlesnakeMaster said...

I, too, just got done w/RSC's
On-line "interview"(hah!)and like a lot of you, I was verrry
skeptical-the General Rule
of Thumb being:Any company that wants you to pay
THEM to take a job is to be AVOIDED!It's odd,tho- there
seems to be nothing on these guys
w/ BBB, RipOffReport,etc..one would
think you would find SOMEthing.This
is the 1st blog I have found re: RSC.

Mark said...

Hey Folks,

I'm on the interview right now while I'm posting this. I went through it once before. It sounded great but something just didn't feel right. After reading all your comments I'm finding it pretty comical now. I logged out last time after they had almost reached there 40. All it takes is to give them your credit card. They don't care how experienced you are. I'd be curious to find out what happens after you give them 297 but there's a good basketball game on. Thanks guys.

LaTonja said...

So I just went through the interview and I have to tell you I was so angry to see all the people who spent thheir money without asking a single question! My spidey sense was up from the time they showed the CNN article because if anyone knows anything about the media you can always go directly to there site and find reference materials and articles to everything they put out! The second thing that made me angry was there are plenty of people out of work and for Careerbuilder to share our information to these scam artists is just unheard of! I am glad that there are so many blogs now that allow you to research these things before you spend money but think of all the people who didn't even bother to check dispite all the reports out there about internet scams! I hope they get what they diserve and that more people post their experiences because that is the only way we can help each other! As a matter of fact I am starting a blog myself because I am fed up with good people getting scammed but I don't feel sorry for them because the old saying "if it sounds too good to be tru it usually is" is more prevelant today then it has been in years!

Iworkintheattic said...

Hi, I just received an email (in my spam box) from Samantha Reese for Paul Rosen. The email address is from premierstaffing.com and the name referred to Paul Rosen is RSC Staffing. Um, that is what got me! Didn't go any further with it. Too many names & company names involved.

Yankeeheart said...

I am so glad I did a little research. I just set up an interview but cancelled soon after reading all these post. There should be a law against this. They shouldn't be allowed to post on job sites either. Mine went as follows:


Please Disregard if you have already set a day/time...Thank you HR.

(Cont. from last comment, with apologies)

Then the money thing came up ($297 once or $182 or something twice) and the number of open positions (40) started counting down. Rapidly. Boom, I'm on Google, and I see all the things you've pointed out and everything mentioned in your comments, and a couple of other pages on complaint sites mentioning these issues. I post a couple of links in the chat, a "host" asks, "What does that say, K*******?" and I mention that they've been reported as a scam site, unable to give refunds, etc and can they answer to these accusations so I can begin employment next time they're hiring? Nothing. Nothing. Then, out of nowhere, disconnected. I know the presentation didn't end because it was still going on, job openings counting down, and it was not my connection.

I laughed. I laughed because I am broke, because I have spent four months applying for jobs and sending out papers and hoping that someone out there will hire me at a decent wage. I laughed because I need work, and here I was, ready and willing and able to give 150%. To work 50 hour weeks. To do anything I had to do to make things okay again for my family.

And instead, it was a scam.

Thank you, both to Jude and to all the other posters.

Belta said...

Thank you!!! You have saved me from dong any more research. I received an email from Amanda Lowery from the same company. I got suspicious when she made this statement, "I recently reviewed your resume that you posted online and it caught my attention". This is a very unprofessional statement for recruiting people. "It caught my attention" is a casual statement or layman's term for _________. Well, we can't tell these people...They are obviously smart enough to come up with this scam. So, thank you for the warning.

Margaret said...

Thank you! I just moments ago was about to do the online interview, but since I've been suspicious all along, and there were over 100 other interviewees, I decided, 10 minutes before show time, to look up this company. I found your blog, and many other sites exposing this "company" as a fraud! I never would have given them the money, but I now will not waste my time.

marilyn said...

Just got off this phoney interview. I asked can you take the 297.00 out of my first hire??? And my question was never mentioned or answered!

marilyn said...

One hint was that in the initial email, three companies where mentioned!!! i was like wait what company is this?????

Judy said...

Thanks for taking the time to post all of them and set up a forum for others to communite their experiences about this company. Like everyone else I sat through their "interview" and could sense red flags everywhere and when the presentation was almost done it hit me that there was going to be a start up fee and sure enough! BAM! There it was at the very end. I also paid attention to the comments being posted and noticed the interviewers comments once he stated how much the program was and began acting like ALL of these people were immediately signing up - all of a sudden the comments were flowing like wine - all bogus of course. I, too jumped off the call at that point and began investigating. One link on their site that states to locate your local RSC office led me to Aerotek's website. I haven't looked into them much yet but thought that was odd. I also tried to email and call someone but have not had anyone contact me back. It's a shame people can't use that time, energy and talent to do something ethical to actually help people; especially in this economy. I guess what goes around will eventually come full circle for them.

Gayle said...

Thanks for the post, I just received an email requesting an "interview" and immediately googled this company and got your blog. What made me suspicious so early on is they used my first name, which I never never use, expect for government matters, such as unemployment. So whoever these people are, I am thinking they are getting our info from the unemployment office, or someone who has access to our info that works for the government. Thanks for saving me time and money!

Amy said...

Thank goodness I did some research on this company and also found your blog. I received an email today 3/7/11 about setting an interview for a position in HR. They got my information from Career Builder and I am definately going to report them there!!

I just received my fourth email from Samantha Kuthia, Executive Assistant to Amanda Lowery. I had previously sent a reply email asking her if there is a phone number to call to set up an interview because I do not click on links from unknown recipients due to spam and virus. I felt that, while the job is very interesting, I would like to schedule an interview over the phone because my gut feeling is that the interview and positions are just too good to be true. I did a search today and you are the first site that popped up in my search. I do not need to read any further! Thank you for your post!

Ed said...

Glad I found your blog.If something seems too good to be true it usually is! The "live" graphics was a dead giveaway.How sad to prey on people
in this recession.This group is just another bunch of snake oil peddlers.It was funny when all those "people" started buying into their program.Thanks for posting this blog.

Jim said...

I just did an interview with RSC and I posted that I didn't have to money right now. The chat box where I type at kept disappearing & they didn't put my response up. CROOKS! I wasn't going to pay but I wanted to see if they would put up the negative response. I didn't see any. Besides, $297 to start a career? There's a sucker born every minute. LOL! SCAM all the way!

Boone said...

Thank you for posting the results of your interaction with this "company." I just got an email from "Amanda Lowery." It was basically the same BS as everyone who has posted above me. Thankfully, your blog was the first on the list when I Googled the company name. I AM looking for a job, but I did not apply to RSC. I just got out of the US Army after nearly 8 years; during which I was: a member and then leader of a recon team, went to the US Army Sniper School in 2007 & served in that capacity for a couple of years, and finished out my career teaching various marksmanship skills. Unfortunately, an injury that I received during one of my tours in Iraq finally caught up with me, and a doctor decreed that I couldn't be a soldier anymore.
I only share this to paint the picture of how completely UNqualified I am to do the job described by RSC. I have NO experience in that field, nor has any of my past work indicated that I might be good at it!
It really irritates me that with the economy being like it is, these people are targeting people who are looking for work. Thus, they are intentionally scamming UNEMPLOYED people! They steal from the poor. So low.
Since your Blog seems to be high on thge results when one Googles RSC, surely they've seen this page - wouldn't you think? I'm a little surprised that one of their henchman hasn't made a statement to counter all these statements. Well, folks like these are generally cowards, so on second thought- it's not surprising at all. I do intend to type out an appropriately worded email to Miss "Lowery" and her associates today. If they respond, I'll be sure to repost it here.
Thanks again for putting this information out. I'm sure you've saved a lot of desperate people from throwing away what could be the last few dollars they have.
Speaking of which - WHO THE HECK want YOU to pay THEM to work for them?! That's not how it works! Unbelievable...

korena said...

Thanks for the blog! I got an email today from Samantha Kuthia (RSC) and it seemed kinda of strange. I guess I won't be calling in for that interview tomorrow :)

Ed said...

This is just another internet scam.
I have been contacted a second time to "interview".It is really pathetic that people will stoop to this level to defraud others.Well,"What goes round,comes round!"

Lisa said...

thank you so much for posting this. i just got the email today and i'm so glad i googled RSC. i couldn't find the "recruiter" or her boss on linkedin so i definitely smelled scam.

sfnvegas said...

Thank-you all for this info on the "too good to be true" near-instant job interview. I intend on informing the Sec'y of State (Nevada) office and hope they can stop these people, or at least make their claims "honest."

Steven said...

Add me to the list of people responding to this position... As an HR professional with experience working in a high volume recruiting environment; this seemed like a good opportunity, but no reputable company would ever ask for money up front... I don't plan on sitting through the "interview" and will be very careful to check my email and voice mail, as now they have my information... Wish I would have checked this before I signed up....Thanks for putting this information out...

Niccole said...

Yeah, I'm on the "interview" now. So did anyone ever find out what happens after you pay the $297? I don't have that kind of money to throw away, but I sure would like to know. LOL!

Johanna said...

I am SO glad to see your blog here and I hope other people don't fall for this.

I was contacted by a "Karen Hill" and I scheduled the interview (which I found odd anyway that it was being set up as described). They too had found my resume on Careerbuilder.com. After scheduling it I received a second e-mail from Karen Hill asking if I'd gotten the first one. I began to suspect this was an automated system after that.

I listened in on the first part of the interview, and in addition to the other red flags you've all described, I noted the following:

1) The fact that they boasted of having positions in Fortune 1000 and 500 companies, and would entrust filling such valuable positions to be filled by inexperienced recruiters.

2) I could get no questions answered on chat - in fact, I couldn't even type in the window before another comment appeared and anything I tried to type was erased.

3) When I tried to ask whether these positions were exclusive to this recruiter base or if RSC recruiters would be competing against other (legitimate) firms to fill them, I could not get a response. My feeling now is of course no such positions exist.

Did anyone else watch the room start to empty out pretty quickly as well? As the presentation went on more people realized it was illegitimate. I came to a certain point and once they asked for $$ I said HELL NO.

I too may be unemployed but at least I still have my $297!

Thanks again SO much for your blog, Jude, and for everyone else for confirming that this is a scam. Be safe everyone and good luck in your job search.

nleach said...

Well I too just finished the so called interview with RCS, I caught most of the red flags you mentioned, missed a few, and noticed a few that you never mentioned, but then again if you would have mentioned them all you would obviously still be writing because their were so many. How ever I do think it was live because when I told them that it might sound good but would need to have a face to face before I would pay any money. At first he (the gentleman conducting the meeting) said he was in I think Los Angeles if I remember correctly, then laughed at me for having such a thought. I told them that was ok because he did mention an office on the east coast of Florida. I told him that is just fine since I line in Tampa bay and didn’t mind driving 3 or 4 hours to visit the actual office. It was at that point that my connection to the server was severed and the conference lost. 40 people at $297 each comes to $11,880. That is quite profitable for them. I went to one this site, http://trustlink.org/Ask-The-Community/Question/Business/Recruiting-and-Staffing-Careers-4424 apparently this gentleman Google earthed it and some of the buildings claiming to be offices ended up being vacant buildings. All I can say is worker/job searcher beware. This is the first time the way that I have ever comment on someone’s blog, so if I offended any one feel free to ball me out. I would further comment but for anyone reading this that actually sat through the interview knows that there is not enough bandwidth available in the world to mention every red flag.

samammari said...

Hi Jude,

I knew they where a sham from the start. I did some research and learned they are part of some mineing Co. Another sham!!! Great Blog

awordqueen said...

I was also contacted by this bogus employer, and did some research of my own.

Amazingly (not), I couldn't even "nail down" their actual company name. A reverse look-up of their toll free number shows it as belonging to an agency called Time Shift, based in Los Angeles. Their web address is www.timeshift.net, and actually says a whole lot of nothing about what services the company actually provides.

In the fine print at the bottom of the initial e-mail I received is the company name Recruiting and Staffing Careers, LLC. A google search of this company name turned up nothing but warnings about their employment scam.

Nowhere online could I find a company called Virtual Recruiting, which is the name they used in their e-mail to me.

Unfortunately the internet is as fraught with danger as it is with good. It provides so many ways for scammers and crooks to separate us from our hard-earned dollars while playing a "shell game"--hiding behind multiple identities all of which don't actually exist as entities providing tangible services--making it impossible to nail down exactly who we are dealing with.

BUYER BIG TIME BEWARE!

Thank you to everyone who posted here. Same as everyone else, I felt this was all too good to be true. Well, sure is. I actually have my "interview" at 7pm PST...which would mean 10pm EST. I thought that was a bit strange. Then I have been bomabarded with emails reminding me that my interview is less than two hours away. Thank you Jude for posting this on your blog! Everyone here has saved me time, and possibly disappointing heartache.

Kevin said...

I feel bad for, but would love to hear from someone who has actually paid the 297 to join them. What happens? Do they just disappear like the typical scammers?

Kevin said...

Thanks for all the posts! I would feel sorry for, but would love to hear from someone who actually paid the $297. What happens next? DO they just take the money and disappear?

Dominic said...

The internet is outstanding. These charlatans contacted me via email like the rest of you, but when they said I don't need a webcam or a mic, red flag. How am I suppose to have an interview without seeing anyone, talking to anyone or hearing anyone unless it was a pre-recorded video? Exactly. And then I found this blog and realized that RSC is hustling people to pay and make THEM money. It's not like $297 is a lot of money, it's the fact that you're not buying anything. these people sell false promises and invisible employment. Thanks for the blog Jude!

Mi said...

I had an "interview" today with them and like everyone is saying, there were red flags everywhere. I like the fact that he said it would take a while for all messages to come through but when it was time to "sign up", everyone's messages popped up at once. I asked a couple of questions and only one of mine made it onto the board.

I don't know why people try to take such advantage of others. I realize that these are desperate times, but really???

I'm glad I didn't get caught up in the hype. Thanks all for the postings.

Stephanie said...

Thank you so much for posting your blog! I interviewed with them yesterday. During the interview it all sounded great...work from home, help people find jobs, etc. Then he got to the amount of money you can make off of each hire and that got my attention as a red flag and I wondered then how much I was going to have to pay them to work for them and what's the catch. He even said people were probably wondering what the catch is and yet apparently 48 people signed up (at $200-$300 a pop...depending on which option they chose) while we were in the interview. I decided to research the company and think about it and came across your blog. I really appreciate!!! You have helped so many people with this.

Has anyone heard from someone who did sign up with RSC and their experience with them????

Glen said...

I kept replying to that emailed question,"Are you available Wednesday 6th Thursday 7th?"

I wanted to know why they wanted to offer a job before they knew anything about me.

but never got a reply. Only the same email requesting me to sign up for a new day of the week.

Corey_Atherley said...

To Judy and everyone else who struggled with RSC: I suggest that you call "Joshua" who is the training manager of RSC. Joshua was in charge of the orientation, the training, and he was in charge of collecting the assessment fees to register to RSC. His number is:
561-859-9422. You should be able to reach him, because he suspiciously picks up his phone like never before. RSC is trying desperately to update their websites, and legitimize their company because of all the consumer complaints against them. If you can't reach Joshua, another alternative is to fill out a complaint form on www.consumeraffairs.com.

bellamarq said...

Thank you so much. I did some research prior to the interview. Didn't want to waste my time! I got another interview and had to think should I do this one or go for the other one. Good thing, cause that was the job I landed. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Bex said...

Thank you SO much for posting about this and for everyone who commented with their experiences. I got an email (three times) similiar to those mentioned here but from a Karen Hill. Despite my misgivings I registered for the interview, but I still didn't feel right about it so I decided to research the company and viola! Your blog was the first thing to pop up on Google. I now know that my gut feelings were correct and I will not be doing the interview tomorrow. I'll be ignoring their emails and phone calls as well. I also now know to research companies when they contact me if I don't remember applying to them (I didn't remember applying to anything called Recruiting and Staffing Careers but I've applied to alot of places and it's hard to keep track sometimes) and to just make sure they are on the up and up.

Thank you again and good luck on the job hunt to everyone!

steve_piekarski said...

Just asked for their credit card nbr w/exp and security code so that I 'could access webcast'. Any guesses on how they'll respond?

Deborah said...

I just finished the inteview with RSC this morning and did not sign up. I asked if I coud continue my unemployment clai until I received my first check, and the moderator said "yes, of course". That is outright fraud.

Deborah said...

I just joined the interview this morning but did not sign up. I asked the moderator if I could continue my unemployment claim until I received my 1st check and he said "Yes, of course". That is outrght fraud.
He also looked as if he had just rolled out of bed.

mjit2 said...

Hi Jude,
Thanks for the heads up on this fraudlent company. As they say, "It sounded too good to be true". In this tough enconomic time, there are many that prey on individuals desperate to find work. I have to tell you, I was actually right in the middle of the interview and guess what happened? I lost connection, Praise God, he was looking out for me. I was then directed to do a search on this company and found your blog, which confirmed that is was nothing but a SCAM. I had not even gotten to the "fee" requirement portion of the overview, which would have definitely turned me off. Keep up the good work, Jude. And thanks again for the heads up.

Carol G. said...

I too got an email from RSC and was suspicious. And I’m a recruiter! I Googled them and your Blog came up warning people to beware. I just want you to know that you’re doing a good thing. By taking the time to let people know they should be careful is an act of kindness in itself. If you can save just one person from spending $297--- that they need for paying a bill or putting food on their family’s table--- I commend you.
You’re awesome!

Amanda said...

My story is pretty much the same as everyone elses, but I wanted to comment on Lourdes post. Samantha Kuthia was the assistant to Jonathan Gilmore, and not the HR person in my email. I mean can't you keep the names straight people!!! Thanks for posting this blog. I smelled a rat as soon as I read the email, but wanted to check it out, and this site was listed second after RSC's website on Yahoo Search. This was definitely more helpful than their site. Thanks again!

Dame Jayne said...

Crap! First, let me thank you for posting this. I thought something was up when you had to "test your system" which is a great way to get a virus. That's when I found you.

Second, many said that Careerbuilder shared the information with them. However, RSC came through on an email that I use when I apply for positions...meaning...I actually applied for a job from them! So, now comes the "CRAP!" I wasted time tweaking my resume, rewriting a cover letter for these bozo's!

Thank you again.

Thank you for this blog. I have recently received e-mails from RSC. I am glad I found out in advance that this is a scam. I am glad I decided to do my research. Thank you again. You confirmed my suspicions about RSC.

Laura said...

Thank goodness that I am a person that always questions everything no matter what. A RED Flag went up for me on the company name alone. As soon as I google the company name several blog and information appeared. Thank you all for making others aware. Brooklyn NY

Moose135 said...

I received several e-mails from the company over the past few days, and I did a quick Google search, since I wasn't familiar with them (and haven't applied to anyone with a name like theirs). Your blog was one of the results - thanks for all the details on what these people are about. Not that I would have sent them any money (I certainly don't have any to send them...) but at least I didn't waste any time on the "interview". Thanks!

bobbi said...

Bobbi said
Well they got me! My gut instinct told me something was not right with RSC. I have been out of work for some time. When you are desperate you find yourself doing things you normally would not do like ignoring your gut. I am in the process of trying to get my money back from the credit card company. RSC is impossible to work with. Nothing that they tell you during the interview is true. Unfortunately you only find out after they have your money. They have many people working on the same job so when you go to post there are already three postings of the same job. If you succeed in forwarding a candidate it takes weeks to hear back and then they tell you the job is on hold. After they have your candidate information. There is a special place in hell for these people. I am only taking the time to write this in the hopes that others don't get scammed like I did.

Garrett said...

Wow!! Thanks for posting this! My boyfriend got up this morning for the 10:00am interview that never happened. We emailed "Samantha" and recieved another email with a new day and time slot. We thought something was fishy... so I googled the company and ran across your blog. I have now added this email to his spam. Thanks again for posting! This was a complete waste of time!

mirigoround said...

Gee, thanks for posting this. What a headache! So much for my virtual interview tomorrow morning

Cathy said...

This is still going on! I just finished the "interview"! How can this be stopped? I, too, am broke and have been without full time work for over a year. If my credit card wasn't maxed out - and I hadn't done my research - I may have fallen for this too good to be true scam. Thank you for posting all the comments - it appears that you have "saved" alot of us!

Rick Roller said...

Thank you for posting this, I too signed up about six months ago. Was very excited about it, even when they called me several times, texted and phoned. Thought, WOW, they must really like my resume, but as the B/S presentation began, the hair on the back of my neck stood up and a sickness overtook my gut. I watched until I heard the enevitable "FOR ONLY $$$$$" then I hung up, but now I just received another email and decided to google it again. Shame on these people who are taking advantage of people out of work and trying to sell them some pipe dream. I am reporting them to the state Attorney Generals office and again thank you for the blog that will hopefully put them out of busines..

MOHAMMED said...

I was suppose to have the interview at 1pm today but decided to find out more about this generous offer. That was when I found your blog and a whole others. Thanks for the alert.

Darlene said...

I'm doing this interview for RSC right now as we speak and I thought it was too good to be true, so I decided to look it up online and found this blog. What raised a red flag for me was the $297 fee they wanted in exchange for having access to their information. I've been scammed too many times and luckily I'm now very leery of these types of offers. Don't do it!

Darlene said...

I'm doing this RSC online overview as we speak and everything everyone else has posted coincides with what they're saying. I knew this had to be too good to be true. It's sounds legit at first, but too easy and then they hit you with the $297 fee to have unlimited access to their back office. What a freaking shame. I hope this helps others out there that are honestly looking for work. You should NEVER have to pay any fees to obtain a job.

I'm keeping the overall feel of this info alive and well by posting today to say, yes, this company is still working the same scam; and thanks for putting together and maintaining this blog to keep as many people as possible from being ripped off!

fred said...

PEOPLE!

You all sound intelligent, educated, and honest. But I am surprised at that so many expected something approaching a genuine interview as a result of this type of approach!

Seriously, when have you ever found a free lunch? Also, when have you ever had a valid approach from a total stranger regarding a legitimate job?

The only legitimate job, ever offered in such a manner is a sales job!

Human resources positions - NEVER! These types of approaches and scams would not be offered if people were not willing to fall victim to them.

If everyone would stop responding to this silliness, it would go away. In an economy of high unemployment, no one is ever going to contact someone blindly with a job opportunity unless it is commission or mlm.

Apparently this company is working under many alias names, Savy Investments, Medical Recruiting LLC, Anastasia Niko, American Recruiting Association, Recruiting and Staffing Careers, Actively Recruit,and there are many other names used by these people in different area codes. The one that contacted me was American Recruiting Association and all of their domains are only about a month old.

Do Not, I repeat, do not give this scam any money! I wanted a part-time job to make extra money and after various efforts to post these alleged "jobs" on various career sites, nothing ever materialized. They will tell you and show you all these great jobs on the website, but in actuality you are one of thousands posting the same job on Craigslist, yahoo jobs, etc. Don't fall for it!
