Scams on Craigslist

September 13, 2009 § 3 Comments

If you ever receive a message that looks like this, please do not fall for it.  It is so generic and says nothing at all, yet I am sure there are hundreds of people who have already fallen for it.  Scammers should be banned from using the Internet!

“You have been accepted for an interview. I read over your resume and
sent it to my boss, he’s looked it over and gave it a thumbs up 🙂

Send me a reply and ill send you our application, its a easy process
and as soon as you fill it out, You will recieve a call from our HR
Rep. I look forward to working with you and i think you will be a
great fit!

As soon as you fill in your information (Name,Address,Phone) The HR
Rep will send you a packet with ALL of the information about us. This
includes our pay rates, company information, and benifits.

Please Reply back to this email if you are interested. I will be
around for the next few hours.

Thanks,

Human Resources & Management”

    You should change the tagline of your blog to “Jokidoki in the Real World” =)

    Duh. People who fall for internet scams need to scram. What do they do w/ your informatioN?

  • Daniel says:

    This happens occasionally if you have posted your resume on Craigslist.com.

    I go this just in my email today and I had a strong suspicion, so I immediately searched online to verify if it was a scam.

    The email doesn’t contain any contact information except for a request to respond to the gmail account that sent it.

    If it was legit, then it would have the name of the company, a website address or a phone number. It should also have a link to the original job posting so you can verify.

    Black flag the email address address immediately!
