Job scams: I wrote about this topic in a previous post called Job hunting? Read the following to keep yourself from being scammed. This was in response to a job I tried to apply to that ended up being a phishing scam. A phishing scam is the act of using false pretenses to get people’s personal information.
Job scammers are the low of the low. Disgusting bottom feeders. Unfortunately, job scams are quite common and there are many different types. There’s a great article I found on The Balance called Common Job Scams and How to Avoid Them.
I learned about Amp Exposure from a job board posting. They were looking to fill a number of positions that centered on public relations, marketing, management and entrepreneurship. It sounded pretty good and they were locally based so I applied.
They got back to me very quickly and were quite enthusiastic to talk to me, which of course is always a red flag.

Also of note is that this company seems to have affiliations with other shifty companies and/or people. These are: Amplify Management, Smart Circle, Winston Greyson (or Grey), Greyson Fesperson)
