FTC stops bogus job placement and resume repair scheme
The operator of a job placement company that deceived consumers with false promises of access to high-paying finance jobs and resume repair services for non-existent jobs will be permanently banned from providing employment services under the terms of a settlement with the Federal Trade Commission. The complaint alleged that the defendants charged recruiting fees of up to $2,500 to set up bogus interviews. Under the terms of the settlement, the defendants will be permanently banned from selling employment-related services to consumers, including job placement, resume repair, or arranging interviews. The defendants will also be prohibited from making material misrepresentations about any product or service, from actions that limit a consumer’s ability to submit reviews of a company online in violation of the Consumer Review Fairness Act, and further violations of the Telemarketing Sales Rule. The settlement also imposes a judgment of $1,744,422, of which all but $18,000 is suspended due to the defendants’ inability to pay. Should the defendants fail to pay the $18,000 judgment or be found to have misrepresented their financial status, the judgment would become payable in full.
