Spam??

Not sure if this is allowed but need to know where to go to question this. A few months ago I received an email from a "recruiter" stating a local store was hiring and wanted me to fax all my personal info to them I never did now I have this email and wanted to know if anyone else got this and is this one also a scam? Do you know where in Verizon I can report these because I called everywhere and no one knows?


Thanks Kagome

Do you have your resume up on CareerBuilder? If so, you'll get a lot of emails like this, from various companies.

 

MarketStar is a real outsourcing company, their website is http://marketstar.com/  Searching their job postings based on the info in the email you posted, I believe the position they are referring to is this one. "MarketStar currently has opportunities available for part time Retail Sales Representative who will focus exclusively on driving sales for a major telecommunications company at selected retail outlet locations."

 

Looks legit from what I can see. Lots of companies use these contracting companies to fill positions, and there are a ton of outsourcing companies out there.

 

Hope this helps!
