Job and Recruiting Emails: TubeReview.com

Have you received an recruiting email like the ones below, claiming to be from

It looks like our "friends" who are behind the AdminSolutions, TooSpoiled.com, Ebandsearch and other scams have hatched another plot, TubeReview.com!  Notice how the nearly identical the TubeReview email is to the others. We'd love to know why the federal government or a state attorney general (Elliot Spitzer, are you listening?) hasn't investigated these!

We have yet to hear from A SINGLE PERSON who has received a job through them.  If you have received this email, or actually a job through TubeReview.com, or have anything to say about them (positive or negative) - PLEASE WRITE US! So far, all we have seen is very suspicious, at best.

We created a dummy resume with a fake contact address, phone and email that we set up to receive the response.  After we filled out their online form, the screen went to a blank page, no confirmation, no statement of what is next, etc.  These REALLY look suspicious. Even more suspicious, there is NO contact information on their website at all; no address, no phone numbers, not even an email address or feedback form. There is only a form to enter your information and a cryptic login (with no way to register for it).

CFR RECOMMENDS THAT YOU DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION UNTIL WE CAN CONFIRM MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THEM! BASED ON THE QUESTIONS THEY ASKED, IT LOOKS LIKE TRYING TO SELL LOAN SERVICES! Another possible goal appears to be referral fees by getting you to sign up for online colleges. We can't tell WHAT they are up to, but, as stated above, we can not find anyone who has received a job through them, nor any means to contact them, to hear their side of the story. If they ARE legitimate, then they certainly act in very suspicious ways!

If they contact you back with a login, as they did us, you will be presented ads for online colleges - see this screenshot we obtained by logging in to another of their websites. Also see this page for our technical investigation of these emails.

Finally, see this page for emails and this scam from victims and near-victims.

Do you have a resume posted online? We'd like to hear from you about your experiences recruiting emails that turned out to be scams or misleading - click here to write us.. We suspect these are possibly a new wave of identity theft attacks.

Note: There ARE legitimate recruiting and employment firms on the internet, and some with very similar names to those above.  We recommend you check any company out before you give any personal information to them.  If they do not have a posted address and phone number, or don't answer the phone, don't give them any personal information! The legal recruiters will be happy to give you contact information, return calls and act in the open!


What to do, if you DID fill out their form:

Report it to the following government agencies:


Below are a number of these suspicious emails received by our staff:
