They used newspaper and online ads for “Postal Jobs” and “Wildlife Jobs” and “Border Patrol” jobs and other positions, although some of the jobs never existed.
The company promised consumers federal jobs if they paid $119 for study materials that would help them pass an exam, even though in many cases there were no exams for the jobs or there were no jobs. The operators also charged consumers $965 for career counseling services, such as resume editing and employment exam preparation, and demanded advance payment, even after stating that consumers would not have to pay the fee until they got a government job.
