Two Bronx residents claim job placement agency scammed them out of money
Two Bronx job seekers claim a classified ad that promised them fast job placement and flexible hours never delivered. Instead they say they were scammed out of $100.
The residents say when they called the number on the ad they reached a job placement company called Fast Finders. They claim they were promised a job within two to three days but never received one. The two then called the company for a refund, but say they were told that a no refund policy was written into their contracts. But according to the job seekers, there was no contract. They say all they had was a receipt for their payment.
To avoid such a situation, the Department of Consumer Affairs suggests that before job seekers pay an agency they should check to see if it has any complaints against it.
