  1. I received the exact same response letter with the request for my credit report from authmedia from a Jessica Cooper claiming to work in human resources. Thankfully their weblink ( did not work, but the situation definately needs to be handled with caution. Totally bullshit.

  2. Thank you. I responded to a similar job posting on craigslist and received an almost identical email wanting my credit report. I thought it seemed odd so I decided to Google the company before I did anything and found your blog. You saved me a major headache!

  3. Me, too! Same thing...thought it might be a real job, sent my resume, and then they wanted my credit report! I knew better, looked it up, and here we are! What crap!

  4. I just got one too from Jessica Cooper. I got suspicious when the email asked me to do a credit check. Did anyone report this?

  5. I didn't report it..should we just have it flagged on craigslist? It's sad because we were smart enough to kow that this is a scam, but desperate people might not think as clearly about it and do it. I wonder what type of info these people are trying to steal exactly? I will flag mine!

  6. Yes by all means flag it. As far as I know that is the only way to notify craigslist of the scam. Since I found similar ads I have flagged them. Hopefully craigslist will pay attention.

  7. same thing over here in hawaii. will be flagging, for sure.

  8. Same thing happened to me today! From Craigslist of course...I thought it seemed odd so I decided to Google the company before I did anything and found your blog.
    Thanks !!!!
