Sent in queries to a couple of likely-looking jobs on Craigslist. Got the same reply back from both, with only the signature changed. Both wanted me to go fill out their “online application.” Neither one gave any specific information about the company, just vague burblings about what a great place it was to work. Neither the job ads nor the signature line included a company name.
I don’t know about the other areas of CraigsList, but I’d estimate at least a quarter of the jobs in their accounting/finance section are scammers trolling for marks.
If I could shoot electricity through the internet and fry the bastards, I would.
