I recieved this e-mail from a man named: Tom Kindal I am currently unemployed so naturally I was interested... But being as I almost was raked into another type of employment scam already this year, I searched this company (Executivena) on this website, which had helped me in the last instance. This is what the search returned.

This is strange. A new Bernard Haldane Recruiting Method:
I got the following e-mail on 03-10-2004:

I read in one other report that Bernard Haldane schedules all of their appointments out of Colorado. I have also read about their deceptive practices. This is a new one. I looked up the domain information for "executivena". (The e-mail domain from the first message.) The results:

As you can see-- the name of his company and web address are phoney. It was only created last month. He has actually used the name of a legitimate company, in another state, as his cover. If you look up Executive Network Associates-- it appears to be a real job board. It wasn't until after the message from Bernard Haldane that I got wise to what was happening.
Bernard Haldane never got any of my money. You see, I went to them (naively) when I graduated from college 12 years ago. They wanted $3500 to get my career going. I probably would have given them the money-- if I had that much money. Fortunately my pauperism at that time saved me. I only wish others knew about this company and their inability to actually do more than write a resume and coach for interviewing. There is no magical, hidden list of influential VP's waiting for Bernard Haldane's call.
I hope that this new Bernard Haldane recruiting approach is not as successful as I am afraid it will be. When you are down and out of a job it is easy to be vulnerable to these vultures.
Thank you Duane for helping everyone in the know. I now pass the information on to anyone who recieves this e-mail from this "new employee" of the same fake service. DO NOT TRUST THESE GUYS!
