That’s very scary. Who knows what would’ve happened if you went!

I know sometimes google maps isn’t updated as quickly as structures are errected but, man.. Even if there was a building, the texts are alarming on their own.

ahhh scary! That is really really strange. Good thing the car broke down.

I have a similarly creep story:

Back in university I lived alone in an apartment and had a cable guy come set up my TV and internet. I really didn’t like having him there with me, but he set it up, chatted and left. The next day I was getting out of the shower and someone was buzzing my apartment over and over. I asked who it was and they said they were from Shaw (the cable company) and needed to come up and see if my internet was working. Although it sounded like the same guy (who would have definitely known from seeing my place that I lived alone) I was standing there in a towel so I lied and told him I had a bunch of guests over and it wasn’t a good time.

 

I called the cable company right after and asked them if they follow up the next day and they said that it would be very unusual, and if they did they would have made an appointment. So scary! Not sure if it was the same guy coming back, or someone in the lobby had heard me buzz him up yesterday and decided to try and get in.

Oh my god… that is terrifying! So glad you didn’t go! 

stephfilly:  That is also scary as hell. I watch too many murder shows for shit like that to happen to me. I opened my door with my gun in my hand one night when my FI and dog weren’t home, and it was just the neighbor looking for something to open her bottle of wine with.. oops.

Wow, this is nuts! I think you should do a drive-by and see if there is an actual structure at that address, and if not report it to the police! (if talking to your brother-in-law doesn’t count)

Always a good idea to be wary about job ads that are too good to be true! Years ago I replied to one asking for a college student with no experiene to be a production assistant. Turns out it was a porno company looking for fluffers – yikes 🙂 Also, “open” and “open-minded” are not good words to see in any kind of ad. I’ve seen a lot of ads on craigslist for open-minded roommates and, after reading all the text, it usually turns out they want naked massages in exchange for reduced rent or something like that!

It helps to have a heightened level of awareness when you are applying for jobs. Google the name and address  of the company, and the person with whom you are communicating. Google the address of the meeting place if it is different than the company address.  Do a reverse phone number search to see if there are any concerns about that number posted.

It’s hard when you are eager to get into the workworld, but I would put on hold an ad from a company that is willing to hire high school graduates, until you get to a point where you need work of any sort.

This ad is full of red flags for sales people doing cold calls either from a  call center or alternatively, from your car.
