I received an e-mail today from a Bethany Crouch. Heard of her? Well, if you have I hope you did not respond to her e-mail in hopes that you finally have a job. She’s a dirty little gremlin who is causing unsuspecting, innocent job seekers to get their hopes up. If you have responded to her and given her information, your next step would be to contact your bank and get things fixed before it’s too late. If you have not, be on the lookout and delete the message as soon as you recognize it. Inform everyone that you know that is currently looking for a job and have put their info on CareerBuilder. The message reads as so:

On the website it had this message:
Public Service Announcement: If you received an email from Bethany Crouch, purporting to be associated with this website and offering you a payment processing job, do not respond to it. It is a scam. We are not affiliated with this person and we will not respond to email or phone calls regarding your dealings with her.
I thought the e-mail sounded sketchy. I IMMEDIATELY researched the company. I also informed Careerbuilder’s Trust and Site Security and gave them the above information.
