Shoppers Critique International SCI A Division of RBG Inc. Reports & Reviews (4)
Thank you.I recently came across the same job posting on LinkedIn and I assumed it was legit if it was on a professional website. I had my doubts when I noticed you could be paid $1000/per week if given enough tasks. That appears to be unlikely. My doubts were confirmed by people's feedback here, and I want to say thank you. Quite frankly, I was more concerned by the possibility of being trafficked in a job scenario like this. I don't think this scam group realizes that they are putting real people in jeopardy and it could cost them their life. Again, thank you.
had the same thing but they asked me to fil out a word document form and asked for credit card number, exp date, and mothers maiden name, and last 4 of my social. the maiden name and social were red flags . i asked if they needed me to fill 1099 tax form but instead sent this ….. i’m thinking of giving phony info and seeing if it’s real
I also was told the same. I asked them for a Fed tax ID number and corporate address.
I also did a reverse look up on the phone number and no information was available.. odd?. And no one responded to my questions.
