I've been looking for a trucking job for a while, and just recently received an e-mail from this man saying he found me through the stated website. The e-mail seems to be very good news (.40 cpm, home weekends, mostly midwest runs) and includes an attached application.
Problem is, the email originated from firstname.lastname@example.org. I tend to be wary of any purported employer using a public e-mail account like yahoo, so I was wondering if anybody else had heard of this guy or used the website, and therefore if it is trustworthy or a scam.
Sorry, but I had to edit out the web address, as it appears to be a competitor's site.
I took a look at the website though, and it appears to have been made by a novice. Did you actually submit an application with that site?
I would be very wary of it. I'm assuming that the person gave you a name of a trucking company. You can always search the trucking company at Safestat, and get contact information for them to find out if it is legitimate.
I have to agree. It sounds like a phishing scam to get your personal information. Any reputable company would have their own domain name and would use that domain name for e-mail. I would only apply directly on a company's website (and make sure it isn't some site posing as an authentic one.) Also, I would never submit my information except on an https:// url...meaning it is secure and it uses SSL. Or apply through a reputable site like this one.
:lol: I can imagine.
I figured the website had to be bad, in order for you to edit. Eventhough, we would be interested in what it was, I know it was for our own good. The last thing I need is some crazy virus or something to whack out my laptop. :lol:
