Kessinger Publishing Work at Home Scheme

Kessinger Publishing Work at Home Scheme

I’ve received many, many complaints in the last three months about Kessinger Publishing. The latest one, today, had Kessinger asking an applicant to pay them $1,950 before beginning work!

They have branched out from a questionable reprinting service to a questionable work at home scheme.

Kessinger wants an applicant’s address before hiring and their bank account information.

They spin a strange tale about the prospective worker having to buy software and hardware from them. Hundreds to thousands of dollars worth. Really? Really?

I would be extremely cautious; read my Kessinger page here before you deal with them. (internal link) NB: I updated that page on March 26, 2021.

Have you been burned? Let me know. I’ll forward your correspondence to any interested agency.

But first, use government tools like these. This is from the Federal Trade Commission:

“Report Job Scams to the FTC

If you see or lose money to a job scam, report it to the FTC at ReportFraud.ftc.gov. You can also report it to your state attorney general.

    I’m literally in an interview as we speak with someone named Anastacia Royce saying she is one of the HR officers at Kessinger. Her English is a little off but may not be her first language, but it still makes me skeptical. I went through the entire interview and she’s not answering a particular question of mine. She didn’t even ask if I had questions, I had to make it known.

    At first I was wondering if I was talking with a real person cause it seemed like the questions were copy and paste. My mom sent me the link through FB. Someone posted the job and their profile has nothing on it except residency and a picture of them. I’m thinking of messaging them if they work here remotely or even has anything to do with this company. This is weird! I just read your other blog of other people’s experiences and it almost lines up with what I just went through.

    • Thank you very much, Angela, for checking in. You are helping others. We all want high-paying jobs to be true so sometimes we lose our common sense. None of what Kessinger says makes sense.

    They just sent me form of W4 to fill out and sign to start work! I’m kind of iffy how Mr.John Wright is rushing me to fill it out?! And how their interview was like copy and paste questions 🤔 I’m nervous to send them information. I need to know if this job is legit or not?!
