Protect Yourself and Report the Latest Frauds, Scams, Spams, Fakes, Identify Theft Hacks and Hoaxes
Do you receive job offers or requests for job interviews (out of the blue) from Liberty National Recruiting or other companies you don't know? It's no surprise if you do.
A company that calls itself "Liberty National Recruiting" or simply "Liberty National" is bombarding people who place their resumes on the jobs websites (like Monster.com) with emails claiming to offer jobs. The email is very vague and ambiguous. The company is sending the emails to people who post resumes on job boards, particularly Monster.com, apparently with little regard to the person's resume or stated career goals. They can avoid meeting a legal definition of Spam because, by posting your resume, you have agreed to be contacted, even if your career path has nothing in common with the jobs they are offering! See below:
Although they hide their true identity behind the name "Liberty National Recruiting", making them sound like a traditional recruiting company, or simply "Liberty National", we've discovered they're part of Liberty National Life Insurance Company, which is owned by Torchmark Corporation.
They didn't respond to our phone or email requests to stop spamming. The "unsubscribe" link did nothing for us. You may complain to Monster.com; click here for their complaint form.
We recommend you file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau, it is free and easy to do online. Just fill out the simple form on this page: https://odr.bbb.org/odrweb/public/GetStarted.aspx If you get a security announcement, just click OK and then "next" and fill out the form with the information from Liberty's email!
See this comments, both pro and con, on Rippoffreport. The jobs may be real and legitimate, although there seem to be a number of complaints about it (see the previous link). The complaints we received are that the emails are unsolicited, repeatedly sent, and are unrelated to any likely interest, given the recipient's career path.
If you have any experience with Liberty National Recruiting, please email us to tell us about it!
Subject: A Job Interview just for YOU!!
Date: 2/3/2010 9:56:19 A.M. Eastern Standard Time
I currently reviewed your resume on-line and I would like to invite you to attend a job interview. Your interview will be completed in order to possibly offer you employment with Liberty National Company.
Job interviews are completed on Wednesday, and Friday. I, (many names used), will be personally interviewing you. You may schedule your time by calling the office at (many phone numbers used). If no one answers, please leave your name, your phone number, and the day that you would like to be interviewed.
My office is located at (many addresses used).
We will be discussing the job opportunities that can lead to management which are available with our company along with the growth potential we have as well as the benefits that we offer.
I am currently looking for a limited amount of Employee Benefits Personnel, Customer Service Representatives, Managers, and Agents.
Please come so that I can tell you why I cannot wait to get out of bed each day and come to work. I am looking forward to meeting with you, however if you cannot make it this week at any of the available times, please call (many phone numbers used) to schedule your interview at a time that will be better suited for you. I hope to hear from you soon.
Liberty National has moved on from spam mail. Now they call me at least once a week to ask if I am still on the job market.
Liberty National may have poor and crude recruiting techniques but they are simply looking for new agents!
People who have a need for a job or a change in jobs. Not SPAM!!
Not a pyramid scam or what have you. You can become a manager in a short time as grow continues.
There are fees to get a prelicense class as an insurance agent but the commission and bonus scale is real and attainable.
Some people have a problem w/ investing in the licenses process and don't have what it takes to pass the test.
That's just the way it is you have it or you don't. You can sell it or you can't!!!
