Perhaps you’ve heard the advertisement while listening to a SiriusXM radio station. It’s for Home Title Lock. They scare you by mentioning that some bad people can commit fraud by going online, claiming your home’s title, taking ownership of your home, and borrowing against your home’s equity without you knowing it. Home Title Lock prevents this from happening. Maybe. I don’t know enough to say whether this fraud actually happens and whether their service works. But I do know this. I’ve been trying to cancel my business internet with Verizon for two months and I can’t prove to them that it’s my account. If the legitimate account holder, with credentials (account numbers, invoices, names and address), is unable to cancel my own business internet account, how can someone casually take over your title and suddenly own your home? It doesn’t make sense to me!
Here’s another thing that doesn’t make sense.
If you have used Indeed to hire salespeople, they will offer to have your candidates take a free sales assessment. Doesn’t that sound great? It is great if the assessment is helpful but it happens to be a useless piece of crap. Why would anyone think, for even a moment, that there is any value in their lame, assessment-in-name-only test?
In this article we’ll explore how Indeed’s sales assessment compares to the gold standard in sales candidate assessments from Objective Management Group (OMG).
