I saw what seemed like an ad for a security position on Craigslist and I sent my resume. I got a call from someone at the company who began the phone conversation by saying "Did you send your resume in for a job?" I saw that as a red flag. It seemed to me like a strange way to start a phone conversation about an employment opportunity. A legitimate employer may have started the conversation with "Hello, my name is so and so, from such and such COMPANY." That is not how this conversation started. She asked me to be at 80 Broad St dressed in "business attire" and she asked me to bring a copy of my resume and my social security card. Toward the end of the conversation she added that I would need to have $80 with me. I almost didn't catch it. It felt like something shady was happening. I went to the office and told the person at the front who I was there to see. Another person came and handed me an application and brought me to a room where I would wait to be interviewed. I waited almost an hour. I finally met my interviewer. She was not the person I spoke on the phone with. We had what looked like a real interview. I gave her my application. She asked me about my work history. She asked me questions that made it feel like a real job interview.
In the end I did not give them $80. I didn't have it. When my interviewer found out that I didn't have the $80 she tried to scold me. She said "Didn't the person you spoke with on the phone tell you to bring $80?" I told her I would try to come up with the funds. She created the impression that jobs obtained through their firm were limited and so I had to hurry up and pay them as soon as possible. After the interview I got a call from the person who contacted me initially. She said she wanted me to call her once I had the money so that they could "place me in a position as soon as possible."
I technically haven't been scammed out of money yet but I post this in case it helps anyone.
