There once was a time a job seeker could find gobs of good jobs on Craigslist. How time and scam artists have changed this site. At best, maybe five offers out of every 10 are for real jobs with real companies. The rest are bogus, attempts to prey on the vulnerable. There are plenty of the traditional get-rich-quick scams, of course. They are nothing new and have plagued job boards for years. But there is another kind that is just as troublesome and relatively new: fake posts that sound like legit jobs from legit companies, with legit-sounding titles and job descriptions, yet they are only there to fool job seekers into giving up personal information, like names and e-mail and home addresses.
