Hmmmmm. Sounds like a I-D-10-T scam to me.

Seriously, if she was a perspective employer, she has alot of personal info on these men. I hope they keep a check on their credit reports. I wouldnt doubt she sells their info.

If they filled out emplyment records, she has their SS#, DL# and other personal info. I wonder if she required copies of the DL & SS card, and possibly birth certificate?

I think you just answered the question of what did she get out of it....
Hope your wrong... But, I bet your right.

My parents always taught me that if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Also, to never quit a good job for another job until all the facts are checked out. I hope these men can either get their old jobs back, or find other jobs soon. Still, hopefully this is a lesson learned by them, even if they were duped.

"I'm going to lose everything over this gal," said driver Tim Letts. "What do I do?"

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that...

Does anyone else see this as an opportunity for identity theft? If the drivers signed on, and provided a tax ID number, or their social security number for tax purposes, then they could be in for some serious trouble.

I highly doubt Mr. Letts troubles have just begun. He may have lost everything over this woman, but I believe he is in for more than a job that never existed to begin with. I hope the woman and any others she is in cohorts in with, are caught and justice is done for the drivers in this story. I also pray that the drivers are allowed their previous jobs back or at least another trucking company willing to hire those who are affected by this story.
oh boy

How bizarre. This story reminds me of another from last 2 years where someone claiming to be from a local hospital's Human Resource department went around "hiring" people and when they showed up to work the hospital had no idea.

My guess is she either scammed them for their personal information to open credit cards or very... very... lonely.

How sad that this woman was able to defraud so many men ... they say they're the smarter sex! haha I do hope the men and their families are able to come back from this incident and not be without their homes and food and basic needs. Times are hard right now and they're not getting any better ....
