charismacharm:  could you find anything on google at all?? If not, they are definitely a scam! I know because something similar happened to me and I lost $ 650. I can’t go into details but please, don’t risk it!

I am looking for jobs in the marketing industry as well and have pretty much narrowed down which companies in my area are complete BS and not legit marketing/advertising jobs. They will almost always state that they are looking for ENTRY LEVEL positions- NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!! They promise you will make at least $400-$600 weekly with up to $1000 inc. bonuses. These companies use a lot of caps, explanation points, and asterisks in their posts. In my experience, I’ve noticed most of these jobs on craigslist, careerbuilder, and monster. I personally like and I don’t normally come across any of those types of jobs on there. Good luck!!

If the first page of google enteries are all websites set up by the company, it would likely be a scam.   I researched one employer, and that was the first page about them was all their website(s) or websites obviously set up by the company.  The third pages is where I found the real dirt.

Also, most sales jobs that contact you instead of you contacting them are likely scams.
