I’ve been reading and hearing a lot about the difficulties we face when being released back into the free-world. This is a subject I make a point of keeping up with, as well as a topic I do my best to stand on middle ground when thinking about it. This is the only way I can stand in the shoes of both sides.

I must remember that corrections in this country is a big business and housing individuals is their service/product. Each town that has a prison is mostly operated by residents of that area, and those residents pay their bills with the income they earn at those prisons. The merchants of that area also pay their bills from the sales these prison employees make. Prisons are what make these economies thrive. Without prisons, where would these folks earn a living?

With that being said, I will say from the perspective of one who has spent just under a decade in prison: Had I not made the decision that I knew could possibly ostracize myself from a free-society, I would not have ended up a spoke in the wheel of the booming business of corrections.

There are approximately 2.2 million incarcerated individuals in this country. There are approximately 440 million citizens in this country. That says to me that there are far more people in this country not locked up than incarcerated. More folks are making the right decisions than the wrong decisions.

I should feel awfully shameful if I find myself in the approximately half a percent of the population.

No one told me anything was going to be easy, nor did anyone say it would be so hard. But it's not only difficult for myself, but it's also hard and not easy for every other citizen in this country, yes, even those who make the right decisions on a daily basis...

I practice the next right thing. I don't reveal my past to everyone, but I also never forget where I've been. I have no doubts there is no one to blame but the reflection in my mirror. I am not a victim... #Corrections #Business #America #Decisons #Victim

Lovely to wake up to a scam first thing in the morning but...here we are.

#ConfirmedScam #ScamAlert

Northvolt does not use gmail accounts to send job offers, nor do they ask you to download #telegram. Which seems to be a popular app for scam artists to use.

Matilda Tidlund kindly showed me another site to report the fraud to: https://lnkd.in/gKsDYbhe.

If you are looking to find a job with NorthVolt, I strongly suggest that you go directly to their website: https://lnkd.in/gmUmBqft and apply there.

If they email a coorespondance, their domain will be @northvolt.com

If you believe you have been the victim of a #scam or been contacted by a fraudulant party, please report the incident to ReportFraud.ftc.gov/#/ and https://lnkd.in/gKsDYbhe.

Always notify the #victim company as well so they can take measures to eliminate this threat.

#ScamDissection #Scam Email number twwwwwwwo: This one is arguably the hardest one I've come across.

There isn't a picture of a person's face, but there is a picture there. No gramatical errors, has first and last name both in the email and the salutations, not asking me to download anything, the website linked actually has webinar in it and looks legitimate...interviews will be over zoom, has the disclaimer at the end...

Totally legit right?

Wrong.

The email #domainname ends with "Applytojob.com" which no company in their right mind would use.

The webinar link may very well be legitimate - but I'm not going to click on it until the company #verifies the employee works there (she does not). Sarah Garcia seems like a #legitimate name and isn't foreign (not that all foreign names are fraud!!! It's just a trend I've seen in scams and one that I keep an eye out for).

There's no telephone number - not a deal breaker but most #professionals have them.

No department name but a title is there.

The biggest flag in this case is the domain name. The company uses AILLife.com and this simply doesn't match.

If you believe you have been the #victim of a #fraud or have been contacted by a fraudulant party, please remember to report it to ReportFraud.ftc.gov/#/ and the company that is being victimized.
