I am posting a list of email addresses that have been used in fake jobs adverts on Craigslist during 2014.These email addresses have been taken from the fake job postings directly.

All of these email addresses lead back to nasty and vicious foreign criminal gangs, who are involved in numerous crimes against the innocent and unaware public, such as ID theft and check overpayment scams.
These crimes can be committed against you by using the personal details that are shown on your resume, which the criminals know are true, accurate and the information on your resume is not usually found reliably from any other source.

My advice: Anonymizing (de-personalizing) your resume is a bullet proof way to avoid becoming a victim when you are looking for work. By removing the following information, you will protect yourself from many crimes, but your resume will still allow you be considered for any job opportunity, because none of the following information is required by an employer when they are  considering someone for a job.

To anonymize your resume, remove all of the following information, if any of it is on your resume.

1. All of your names
2. Your gender
3. Your address
4. Any phone or fax numbers
5. Any email addresses
6. Your DOB and age
7. Your SSN (yes, some people still have this on their resume!)
8. Your martial status and any children you may have
9. Any photos of you or your family (I know it sounds crazy, but some people like to do this)
10. All previous employer names that you’ve worked for (replace it with something generic, like “major technology company”, “national wholesaler”, “large hospital”, etc)
11. Any specific location information (replace it with something like “major East Coast city” or “mid-west town”, etc)
12. Any unusual or uncommon job titles (replace them with job titles that are similar to any unusual ones you’ve had but which are more generic)
13. Any actual dates that you worked for any employer (replace with the number of years you worked for an employer not the actual years – so 2 years not 2010-2012)
14. Any notable achievements/awards in college or past jobs, which can be found online and which will identify you, especially if you had your photo taken with them. If you have these that you do want to point out on your resume, try to make them generic if you can or be brief.

15. Create a new web email address – see below.

Now, look at your resume. Can you tell who it belongs to? If your answer is no, then nobody else will know either!

The above details in items 1-14 have no real value to a real employer before you are interviewed but they are of great value to a criminal. Some of the above information will be needed by a real employer but not until after you’ve been interviewed and only if you get a job offer and accept it, by which time of course, you will know if they are a legitimate employer.

Your education, skills, training, work experience and personal qualities (if you have a personal profile) are the key elements that a real employer wants to see in determining your suitability for a job and not anything else. All the other stuff is a vestige of the old days, when your resume was a “this is me” and “my life so far” type document and before identity theft and other remote/anonymous crimes had been dreamed up by the villains.

Please remember this: Once your identifying information is obtained by a nefarious/criminally minded person, you have no idea where or to whom your information has gone to and you can never get it back or protect it ever again.

15. Create a new email address just for Craigslist/job searching and use that instead of your real email address. If you create it with a web email provider that is different to your usual email address provider (so yahoo if your real one is gmail), you can keep both inboxes open at the same time on your computer (on a smartphone, this isn’t an issue).
I advise this because if your Craigslist/job searching email address is discovered by scammers/criminals and you get spam, 419 emails and other scammer emails, you can just delete it and create a new one, without any trouble or inconvenience. But being forced to change your real/usual email address is a much harder proposition as it is full of inconvenience of informing everyone you know about a new email address you have and having to update all those websites and accounts that you’ve registered your details with on over the years, etc. This is a lot of trouble we can all do without. Also, in my opinion, you shouldn’t ever publish your real/private email address – give that only to family, friends and others who you really trust.




Here is the list of email addresses that have been used in fake jobs adverts on Craigslist during 2014.

Boat price 15.000 € including the shipping and insurance.Now the boat it is locate in Virgin Island. For the payment I would like to use eBay Motors as a third party. They will keep your money into a protection account until you get the boat and will release it to me after inspection period is over and you agree to keep it. So, this is not a blind transaction, you can see the boat before committing to buy and to eliminate any concerns you will have 5 days to inspect it. If you decide not to keep it eBay will refund you the money, no questions asked, and shipping back will be my concern. But I assure you won’t be the case. I think this is more than fair for both of us.
If you’re interested to conclude this purchase in a timely manner email me your: Full Name and Shipping address,a copy of your identity card front and back to open a case with eBay. They will contact you to explain the entire procedure. The financial part will be managed by them, which means that you will have a 5 days inspection period before committing to buy the boat. Using eBay Motors service we are both 100% covered during the steps of this transaction.

The truck is in perfect condition, no electric problems, no accidents/liens/loans. No scratches, never been repainted. It has 78,038 miles on it. I have all the truck manuals, title, documents. I’m selling this beautiful 2006 Ford F-150 Lariat SuperCrew/5.4L 4X4 because my daughter is in hospital, is very sick and I need money for treatment. The total price is $2,500 including delivery and handling to your address. I am desperate and I need to sell it fast, before 23 November of that being the reason for selling it so low. My husband and I divorced last month, after the divorce I was awarded the truck.

Because i’m very busy with my daughter I decided to sell it online through eBay because this protects both: buyer&seller. Also they will give you 7 days inspection period (test drive),and in the mean time, offers me the guarantee that you have the amount needed to buy it. If the truck is not like I described they will ship it back on my expense and you will get a full refund. All documents, clear title and a bill of sale on your name will come along with the truck. Let me know if you are still interested.
