In response to a Craig’s List post, I applied to work as a personal assistant. The position was listed as part-time, 20-25 hours/week starting at $15/hr. for the first month and then $20/hr. after that for a production company that supposedly produced films, commercials and music. I was scheduled to interview with the company manager the day before they wanted me to start working if they hired me. nConveniently, my interview was canceled at the last minute, supposedly because the president/CEO of the company had a last minute production meeting. I was asked to arrive the following day to begin work anyway monitoring an audition for vocal talent. nFor 3 hours that day I sat behind a table with another girl whom he’d “hired.”” We even filled out tax forms with our social security number on it. Vocal talent did show up that day and audition for him as a result of a separate Craig’s List post. He handed out fliers to talent he liked inviting them to a welcome party. I fear to think what happened to those who attended this party – I only noticed a few young female talent receiving these fliers. nThis criminal had said they were associated with Universal Records and On Fire Entertainment. These are good names to look out for. I understand Universal Records is real
but not when associated with the other bogus names. nI was never given a phone number
and they didn’t have a website. $45 I’m owed but never got. This was over a month ago. The other girl with whom I worked never received compensation either nor any contact back. This is no gray area case – 100% scam scam scam. nNicolenChicago
