Jobs listed on Craig's List: are any real?
« on: January 19, 2010, 10:53:32 AM »

I'm wondering if anyone here has ever responded to what turned out to be a genuine job offer on Craig's List.

Every single one I have ever tried to respond to has been a scam. They either want me to click a link which they email me (career harmony seems to be a big one) where they take all of my personal info when there is no job, or they're trying the old Nigerian scam.

I think I'm going to give up on even looking there anymore!

Some of them looked quite real to me, but I haven't tried applying for them, have you tried Michigan Works site? They are real jobs from what I have seen.

The few times I've tried applying to jobs has been exactly like the original poster described, scammilicious.

Got to be on the lookout for the scammers everywhere today...

there was a thread on here back a few months from a gal that had applied for some kind of a job offer she found either in the Blade or in the MEN and it was a total scam...

somethiing about selling fire extinguishers or something along that line if I remember correctly  (memory not what it used to be 8* 8* 8* ).
