Craigslist posting fake job ads??
Ya...I live in LA...Los Angeles for those who get confused...I have been DILIGENTLY applying for jobs via Craigslist for the last year! I have a great resume and I also do INDIVIDUAL cover letters for each position... I am quite OCD and professional regarding job responses. I NEVER get ANY replies and I have a Brilliant Resume with Incredible references... Well...I have noticed...since I have been on CL for so long..that I see repeat job listings.. so........ I started calling the ones that actually list their names....
I ask them...Did You Place An Ad In CL Re: so and so position???????? They say...NO.....We Posted that ad Months ago.......etc.... so..I kept calling and calling and received the SAME response.....CL is bullshit....to pump the job economy in every city.... I wonder WHO is Behind IT????
If you think I am Lying...try it for yourself....
just saying.......................

There is a posting outside a Walmart in North Vancouver that must have been there for weeks...

I wondered why it was still up, the catch is that you can't drop the resume off at the store...

You need to fill it out online.

So, I think they are trying to count how many people are interested without actually hiring someone.

Re: Craigslist posting fake job ads??
I have been replying to every ad on Craigslist jobs section (except for sales and truck driving) since June. I got one job as a small engine mechanic working for a psycho. That did not last long. Then another job renovating apartments from some Cuban guy who fired me after 2 days for showing up on time. So I guess he was a psycho too.

I just do not think there are any real jobs there.

It's not the actual site itself but scam artists and spammers that post fake ads on Craigslist. They do it with personals, cars and yes jobs just to name a few. They will post fake personals to lure you to a place where they can hurt you. They will post fake car ads to rob you when you go to look at the car. They will post fake jobs to phish and get your resume and personal information to steal identities.

Ever hear of the Craigslist Killer?

OP back here...guys...it keeps happening...I don't know who is behind it...but I will tell you this...SOMEONE is using CL as a "PROP up the job market-tool"... I have contacted several more companies...their response was..Yes..we did post an add...but more than 5 months ago. Sooooooo..who is doing this???? Is our friend "Craig" taking bribes from BIG BROTHER to post JOBS that are NOT THERE??? Hmmmmmmm. OK people..Those of us who are really trying hard ad actively seeking a job...WE NEED to find out what is behind this...

I'm bumping myself..this is far too importantbump

Re: Craigslist posting fake job ads??
I am in a job locating service with AARP- my counselor told me today to stay off the Craigs List stuff- its basically bulls-it and people counting how many and who has interest in certain jobs. I don't understand it and why they post there, but I too get no where , just like the OP---with bulls-it Craigslist.....
...just sayin'

Every job on CL is not a fluke. I found a decent job on there recently.

Always contact the poster before sending your info.

Sometimes you can google search the phone number ("555-555-5555") to filter out potential scams or "waste-of-time" positions.

Re: Craigslist posting fake job ads??
The owners of craigslist are definitely in collusion with the scammers. If not, then why have they not implemented basic internet technologies like verisign and so on to keep out the bullshit job ads, personals which are just scams to porn/virus links, fake items for sale and so on.

Careerbuilder, ebay, and match.com have no problem with the basics yet craigslist to this day is a wild west of scumbag scammers and they have never done a single fucking thing about it.
