SCAM Alert July 22, 2011

on .

This one is specially disturbing as it is more believable than previous scammers:

From Roger Rollins, Great Lakes  Truck Driving School:

One of my reps in the office took this call the other day. I knew Marten did not accept grads so I called Marten to verify that it was not them and they had no idea who this person was posing as a Marten recruiter. This is the info the guy gave us, this is the email that one of my employees sent me, I copied and pasted it for you:

"I received a call from Marten Transport this morning, looking for drivers (both new graduates and experienced). 

They are looking for 4 drivers immediately and 14 more within the next 2 weeks.  Here are the particulars...

As we have discovered this was a complete fraud just searching for contact information on entry level drivers to scam.
