Confused in Kalamazoo, Michigan said: I am "working" for jobnab and the jobs I have found are legitimate jobs. I haven't received payment for the website and I do not know what happens to the applicants; all I know is I just find the jobs and they claim people on their website verify the jobs. I personally distrust jobnab more and more each day.

Sincerely,

Confused

Ok I was actually just literally about to call in for the training call. Thank GOD I found this. I kind of thought it sounded too good to be true. I will NOT be doing the training call at all. How long have you been working for Jobnab?

I just received a text message from "Kim" concerning my resume that she saw which matches a position she is filling. I wondered why someone would text me to register to a website to discuss details for a job if I'm interested. Why not just call or email me directly. Seemed kind of funny, so I checked here first

And I could not remember if I applied some where that said jobnab. I called the number and it was a recording. They wanted me to register with them. I did not. I do not know how they go my information. Its really scary

Crap... I went to the website because I have been applying to jobs like crazy... I'm not sure what they can do with my email and phone number... Did not give out any other information... It's sad with the economy the way it is people are getting scammed!

Ruth in Aurora, Colorado said: Unfortunately there are scammers out there taking advantage of a downed economy by targeting people who desperately need a job. Please make sure to verify that the employers you're applying to are legitimate by checking them out with the Better Business Bureau at: www.bbb.org . Please beware that the job sites www.valuedemployee.com and www.jobnab.com are scams, they have no real jobs and are only there to collect your information for their own benefit. Good luck with your job search and be careful!

I myself just received a text "Hi, I am Anne, based on your resume you match a job I'm filling....etc" Luckly I started Googling jobnab and saw scam. Thank you for this board. Besides, a real employer wouldn't text you, the would call. This is a bunch of BS that there are people out there that pray on peeps that are desperatly seeking work. We dont need let downs like these kind of people. Again thank you for the heads up. Good luck to all that are seeking employment. It is a tough time out there!

Yeah, I got the same text except it was " Hi I'm Debi" I knew that it had to be a scam because if you are interested in my resume, tell me the position that you are filing, also why do I need to register for anything?

Stephanie in San Diego, California said: I found this forum actually doing a search on Jobnab. I have also posted my resume on Monster.com I have recieved 7 emails since I first registerd. I had a feeling to was a scam as they are in Florida, and I am in California. I am glad I searched about them prior to registering. I had this problem about a year or so back with CareerBuilder people would call my phone or emailing me with some kind of scam. Always check up on the compant prior to giving out info, often it can be more irritating, annoying then it is harmful they spam you with info.

You saved me from making a HUGE Mistake I was seconds from registering and this forum popped up (pheww) I feel lucky thank you

I am not trying to defend Jobnab, however, I actually have received legitimate responses from job postings that I applied to. I even exchanged a few e-mails with one company that is local to me. Initially, they are interested in hooking you up with a College, but they did send me some leads even though I talked to the College Recruiter and declined to sign up with them. I have been referred directly to the job sites to fill out applications so that makes me feel a bit more confident that my resume is getting to where it should be. I suppose there might be the possibility that they are mocking the real websites and it is actually just going back to them, but that seems to be pretty elaborate. I am still under employed at this time (since June 1) so they haven't been a HUGE help. But for the time being, they are at least helping me fulfill my required 5 applications a week for unemployment assistance.
Anyway - good luck out there everyone!

I was not so fourtunate I gave out info before I realized that why would an employer need this info before I know if I got the job.So I let my need to work cloud my better judgement but If they think they are going to be better off with my info they may need to think again my credit is bad so to all the crooks out there good for you .Y ou might be better off with your own info and my wifes keeps allour money in a seperate account.

Robin - Aurora CO

I really dont think their purpose is to be crooks with our information. Their "scam" is to try to get you hooked up with their College Recruiters as far as I could tell. I think they get a kickback if you decide to take classes at the colleges they refer you to. I was on the phone for quite a while with the recruiter trying to get me to sign up. I finally just told him that I was going to think about it and if I decided to go that route I would call him back. I never heard from him again. I still received e-mails daily with new leads until the beginning of July. The daily e-mails stopped and now some of the jobs are considered PREMIUM. They want you to pay them to be able to apply for those jobs. They are charging like 49 cents, 59 cents, etc. Not all of the jobs listed are premium though so you dont have to pay for those. I dont know, I am on the fence as to whether it is truly a scam or not. I guess all we can do is just be weary about who gets our SSN (even then, we are never totally protected from Fraud since we are giving our name with middle initial, address, etc.) That is all a scammer really needs to be able to get access to your credit bureau information. I used to work for a Credit Card and Check approval company (remaining namesless) and there was a 17 year old kid that convinced our Sales Force that he was a legit business and needed access to run credit bureau's and credit cards so he got a machine from the company. The FBI was involved with this also because he ended up with over 32 identities, bank accounts and all just by going to clubs and talking to people. You never really know who you are talking to face to face or online. People that he talked to gave him enough information about themselves that he would check their credit and then open bank accounts under their names with his face on the ID. He even stoled Birth Certificates from a hospital to further his cause. That was technology back in the 80's!!

Not sure if this has already been posted but FYI that “Jobnab” is just one of several hundred domains tied to Alec Difrawi (AYMAN EL-DIFRAWI and other aliases). I would encourage everyone to check out his history related to employment services. Mr. Difrawi served time in federal prison for a previous employment scam.

I also replyed to the text and told them to remove me from their database and to not contact my # again. Thank you for posting

As if finding a job isn't hard enough. These scam people are seriously like the most evil of evil....I've gotten the 20 calls in 1 day starting at 7 going til 11 I've gotten the text messages and also the thousands of bs emails. I give up on internet searching for jobs I'm going back to doing it the old way and going to places with my resume in hand and a smile on my face. It never let me down before. Just had to vent. Good luck everyone.
