    I just received a text on my Google voice number asking, "Mel, are you still looking for a job?" Once I replied "Stop" to cancel, I then received a text saying, "Employment HUB: You have been unsubscribed and will no longer receive messages."

    Received a text this morning "(my name) are you still looking for a job?" The concerning thing here is how they know my name?? Maybe via my phone number but I am supposed to be unlisted - anyway, total scam, don't fall for it

      I also received this text oddly as soon as I switched to metro pcs? I'm wondering if we're all using metro as a carrier and they are getting our phone numbers from metro pcs somehow... Please respond and let me know if you also have metro perhaps they are liable for this intrusion.

    Keep getting calls from 844-453-4040 asking if I'm still looking for a job, so when you ask questions (Amy) she hangs up quickly. But she calls back again like I don't know that she called before how stupid can she be.

    I got a text from this number this morning asking me if I am still looking for a job. I've been getting phone calls, sometimes multiple times a day, with a woman's voice (sounds like a robot) asking me if I'm still looking for a job. I've blocked every number they have called me from and it slowed down a little bit, but then I got the text. The phone calls were coming in so many times per day it was borderline harassment.

    This was really helpful. just received a call from this number ! first it was a message asking me if I am still looking for a job, so I thought they found my information on indeed and are just reaching back out to me but no, she sounded like a robot so while being on the phone, as she asked me about going back to school I searched up the number and this came up. Thank you so much, this was so helpful.

    Just received a text instructing me to call this number if I'm still interested in a job with them, but no identifying information and I haven't signed up for any job services or applied for any jobs recently. When someone claims to be calling from a business but doesn't identify the business, that's ALWAYS a red flag, so I Googled the number and it brought me here. Passing along info for others.

    I received the same text message on my phone but addressed to my 12-yr old child. I called to ask how they got the name and number, but it is a recording that answers and tries to decipher what you want with programmed responses and then disconnects when it can't figure it out. Thank goodness my child has no phone of their own.

      Never reply to the text messages. This is because the scammers will know that your phone number is active and will continue to send you more fraudulent messages. Scammers most of the time do not know if their potential victims' telephone numbers are active or not. So, they send out messages to the same numbers hoping some of their potential victims will respond.

    As of 11/28/2017, I have received a couple of these over the last 2 days:

    "Name, are you still looking for a job? Please call us at 1-844-453-4040 ASAP. (Reply STOP to cancel).
    I usually respond to these to expose the shady path but I don't have time right now.

    Don't disclose information."

    A man called from 888-655-58588 and stated that he was calling from GA Power and that we had unpaid bills and they would be shutting off our power. He asked that the owner of the business call back to 844-453-9744 to pay the outstanding balance within 45 minutes to prevent our power being shut off. The only hitch is that we do not use GA Power - we use Greystone. SCAM!

    Just received a text message asking me if I am still looking for a job and to call this number. It did not say who the message was from.

    I called and it became apparent that I was talking to some automated system. When I asked the name of the company, I was told it was Career Advisors in Clearwater, FL.

    There was an attempt made to obtain personal information from me. I hung up and proceeded to research the company online. My search found no such company name and address.

    I then searched the phone number itself and that is what brought me to this page.

    This warning is absolutely right. This is a scam and do not provide your personal information.
