Has anyone received the manual? I'd like to know if there was any physical contact information like a return address or anything at all pointing to a source location.

Yes, it happened to me too. I was so excited to finally get a "nibble" in a job field that I was actually passionately excited about. It would be GREAT to actually find these people.

JSandoval in San Diego, California

24 months ago

I was one of the person who ignored her initial instincts and bought the study guide. The position I responded about was for a Lactation Technician in San Diego, CA. I found it odd that this was being promoted but when the cost was $18.50, I figured it couldn't hurt. I also found it odd that despite the position being in San Diego, I could not find a San Diego based office. I only located their Atlanta, GA address. I also found a posting on the Better Business Bureau website stating that they had a couple complaints that went unresolved due to them being unable to reach the company by phone. Attempts to reach them by mail came back undeliverable. I sent an initial email response to a KEVIN WILSON asking about the study guide. I never received a response. I then received subsequent emails asking why I had not taken the assessment yet when I already had. I then became concerned because I wanted this "recruiter" to know I was indeed interested still! This is when I decided to try and contact him by phone and came across this forum. I have requested a refund from the vendor selling the study guide. I wasn't given any trouble about this and will wait to see if the refund actually arrives. I found a website for The Study Guide Warehouse and sent an inquiry. I doubt I will get a response. It makes me sick to think that I was duped for the cost of the study guide but worse then this was all the information I provided about my work history. I cannot recall if my SSN was part of this information.

Has anyone been able to get anymore information about recourse, FBI, is there anything that people like us can do? I would like to think I was smarter then this but in this tough economy, the excitement you get when one of many job applications is responded to it very encouraging. Sad that in times like this, there are people out there profitting from it.

File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, it only takes a few minutes: www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/

You can also complain to the payment processing company, Clickbank.com, or the HR software company the scammers lease the HR software from, catsone.com. And of course Indeed and the other hiring sites.

What I dont understand (and I dont want to sound rude) but if you are applying for positions that you are capable of why are you buying a study guide? I went on and seen the study guide thing and then seen $19.00 and didnt think anything of it because even for my State Certification test, if you wanted a study guide you had to purchase it for like $40. But after I seen that I just said oh well, I know my stuff so a study guide would be nice but I dont need it. And if I did need it then I probably shouldnt have been applying for that type of position anyway. Even though I didnt buy the book, I did take the test and I still cant believe I was stupid enough to fall for this!! I really thought I was getting feedback from a posible employer. Well good luck to everyone else on here with there job search. and next time just remember you should never have to spend money to get a job!!! Damn you Jeremy Jones!!!!!!!

Did anyone get this afterwards?

Dear Applicant:

This email confirms that we have successfully received the Pre Employment Questionnaire you submitted. We will review your answers and get back to you with any questions or concerns.

Next Steps:

Candidates that are being considered for further review will be contacted within 1 week via email from your recruiter with instructions for a Pre-Employment Skills Assessment test. The Pre-Employment Skills Assessment test is a critical indicator as to whether a new employee will be successful. The pre-employment test should take anywhere from 30 - 60 minutes depending on the position in which you are applying. Please take the necessary steps to review for the test accordingly. Because we rely heavily on the pre-employment test conclusions when making a determination of whether to continue the recruitment/hiring process with any given potential employee. This pre-employment test is a not just a formality in our recruiting process but rather a critical indicator as to whether a potential employee will be extended a position upon completion of the hiring process.

After completion and review of the pre-employment skills assessment, if there is mutual interest, candidates will be scheduled for an in-person meeting with the hiring manager. Second and third stage in-person meetings may also be scheduled depending on the needs.

Lastly, further information may be requested from top candidates including background checks and reference checks.

This pre-employment test is a not just a formality in our recruiting process but rather a critical indicator as to whether a potential employee will be extended a position upon completion of the hiring process.

Yes, they'll email you to let you know you're "selected" for the pre-employment test, then direct you to the web site to buy the "study guide" for $20-$40. It's scam, there have been dozens of these web sites on line in the past couple of years, many different industries. Do they have a phone number, give it a call. I tried that and got an Atlanta courthouse when I got sucked in. It's a scam. You can file a complaint with the FTC at FTC.gov. Direct: www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/

Hello I too received an e-mail from this place. I called them and got an automated system. I also had to take an assessment test. The last e-mail I received had a link to buy study guide. I questioned this and of course did not get a response back. I also e-mailed him wanting to get information on the company that was hiring and also did not get a response. What a waste of time!

MMM MMM MMM smh -- I am past pissed to know that I just got scammed also. I was hesitant in buying the "study guide" because I initially thought it was fraudulent but couldnt find much info about the company. So, I was like what the heck and was about to wing it and just take the "assessment" without buying the handbook. I just completed it this morning and realized that the information on the study guide didn't help me with ANYTHING on the test. Now,I come on here which I should have done at first instead of googling this company. To find out it was all a scam!!!

If anyone has made the mistake of getting the manual, email demanding your $$ back. I did this and threatened that I would report them to the internet fraud dept on the FBI site (which I actually did do), and they did credit my account. But you have to follow up and make sure it is actually done.

Red flag should've been the fact that "Victor Hill's" emails all came through after 11PM. But when you're desperate, you cling onto any glimmer of hope.

Did the stupid assessment (didn't pay for the book), not giving them any more info, reporting to FTC. Thanks everyone here.

Below is one of the emails I was sent by BOYDEN SEARCH. I filled out the pre-employment screening last week and today I recived a letter that sent me to a link to buy a study guide. I of course did not buy it, as I thought no ligit company would have you buy anything. I did look Boyden Search up before completing the screening but I admit, I didnt have enough time to do a indepth search. I found a webite that looked real along with support websites with detailed decriptions of Boyden partners skills and work history. It wasnt until today that I thought I should look a little deeper. After seeing the study guide website I tried to call the number listed on the emails I had been sent. All automated and never got through. In fact, when asked to enter the first 3 letters of the name I was looking for, the prompt said no such person exsisted in the data base. This is really a horrible thing to do to people. I mean I've been looking for a job for 4 months and really thought I found something. I wish there was a way to track these jerks. Here is one of the emails James Hammond sent me:

Hi
