I came across an article mentioning the attorney general, when I did some research about a business operating on the 6th floor at 80 Broad Street, in Manhattan. Earlier today, I was at 80 Broad Street, because I had been looking for maintenance work. I was told over the phone to bring $100 to pay for training for an OSHA certificate. When I got there however, I was then told that this was just a “pre-registration”, and I also needed to pay an additional $200 to take 2 classes or one 10 hour class. I complied. When I complete the course and get an OSHA general safety blue card, I would then be directed towards a possible employer. When I got home, I was informed by my father that this is likely a scam, and I was most likely robbed of $100 dollars. That job training is typically free, and most employers do not require OSHA credentials. Looking for answers, I discovered the building has had these kinds of questionable “businesses” before, and this report came up when I searched for “maintenance.” Now, I don’t know for sure if I was scammed, but in the event that I was, these people have copies of my social security card, as well as my state I.D., which is what really bothers me. Money is one thing. That information is another. When I finally took a look at their website, it was so amateurish that I could only feel bad for myself was jumping into this without investigating properly. The name of the gentleman that interviewed me (Joseph Smith) does raise flags, as well as the name of the young lady who contacted me (Ms. Smith). The most I can do about this for now, is share my experience and look into possible legal action. Like other poster mentioned, I’ll try to get back my money. .
