  • BBB has verified that the company is not registered with the Pennsylvania Department of State as required by Pennsylvania law.  The BBB could not find a valid address for the company.

    These “companies” target individuals who are having trouble finding viable employment. Consumers are lured by advertisements promising high wages, with little or no education or experience necessary.  Consumers may be asked to deposit checks.  Many of these, if not all of these checks will be counterfeit, fraudulent or stolen.  Consumers may also be asked to make investments that do not lead to financial gain.  BBB has concerns about their employment offer and their claims.

    BBB cautions people about giving out personal and financial information to unknown entities.  Job seekers should always do thorough research on any company who is offering them employment, before they accept a position.
