Linkedin is also a half and half business website. Lots of people claim its the best place to post your resume. What did I get so far? Spam e-mails and phone calls from fake telephone numbers or "unknown Number" that don't leave messages.

People should also beware of Bankers Life and Casualty Company. I got a call and an email today from two seperate people claiming to represent this company for a sales rep position and I decided to google and apparently this company has some suspect business practices. Best of luck to everyone searching for employment.

I have no sales experience, nor do my resumes say anything about sales.

Same here. No sales experience and my resume is engineering related. That was one of the things that made their contact attempt kinda suspect.

I just got a text from Kim today at well, I decided to google and saw this (knowing I never signed up w/ jobnab and was wondering how they got my number). I suspected a scam.

"Hi, I'm Anne, based on your resume you match a job I'm filling. If you register at jobnab.com we can discuss the details if you're interested."

I just got the same thing but thought she was someone different so I did complete the form on line! I will let her know I am not interested! Thanks

I also got a too similar Email from these guys- the only difference was ...something in the Manufacturing industry, and the name of Kristie Dyer as Recruiting Manager. Almost sounds like they cut & paste wherever needed to finish the same type email.

My biggest question is, how can someone from Florida help me find a Job in Portland?! Their info about "Job Scouts" says that they have these guys working in targeted areas of the country.

Surprise, Anne has changed her name to Kim, and the scam goes on. If you have any 'internet savvy' at all you will not post anything other than a cell number or email on these open resume posting sites.

Why would a legitimate employer that you have had no previous contact with send you a text? That is ridiculous. I keep getting "job offers" insurance companies that want to hire me to do sales! I've never done sales in my life and these guys send me an email every day and have called twice! A legitimate employer won't "hunt you down" if you don't express interest in their company. It just sucks, cause I need a job and its hard to find one without a computer.

Ruth in Aurora, Colorado said: Unfortunately there are scammers out there taking advantage of a downed economy by targeting people who desperately need a job. Please make sure to verify that the employers you're applying to are legitimate by checking them out with the Better Business Bureau at: www.bbb.org . Please beware that the job sites www.valuedemployee.com and www.jobnab.com are scams, they have no real jobs and are only there to collect your information for their own benefit. Good luck with your job search and be careful!

Anyone have any information on ABC Employment Services- I believe this is a scam also.
We need to rid all of these scammers . It is hard enough find a good job right know, not having these people wasting our time with bogus jobs. I would like to personally meet these scammers and let them know what I think.

"Webster" in Dallas, Texas said: Oh, the company I applied to was A2z on my cell phone it said Careernetwork.

yeah the information I got from them was on careernetwork too. Unlike most places you go through to apply for a job, this one kept offering me schooling, and even asked me why I did not want to futher my education when I replied I did not want information about futhering my education. And then they came accross and said that I fitted a job for jobnab as a scout. I had an "interview" scheduled today, and I think I'm gonna skip it. Thanks everyone for the post!

Sad to say I fell for this scam and gave some of my info.... I didn't even research until now because I was so excited about an opportunity. I should have known when I got a text and replied back, but didn't get a response back. It's really messed up that people are out there taking advantage of the economy and "desperate" people who are in need of a job.

Someone in Plano, Texas

This is common guys. They are either selling low rent positions (like outsourcing) or are charging a fee to post a position. This has a couple of advantages. It build a large implicitly accepted marketing base for selling ads... like going back to school. Two-fold agenda, and neither cares about you. We are just warm bodies and email addresses, to either sell ad distribution or answer phones....

To find a real job, you have to check local listings, company websites and job fairs. Show the market that you are agressive and self motivated. Then the job search gets a little easier. Companies want employee actively seek employment (and by active they mean physically). Search engines for bodies were a scam from the begining.

I just got a text from Deb at Jobnab. Stoopidly I had just awakened and responded. I wish I hadn't. I did stop and come by here, but to late. Darn! I was freaking out and got up at 4 am. I just took a little nap and just wasn't thinking. My unemployment ran out and I am really going nuts here. Who is going to want to hire someone 61 years old :( What have I done now???

I got sucked in by the whole thing, put up a job, was offered a Job Scout position and accepted it. Sat through two 90+min presentations on being a Jobscout without the basic common sense to google the website, I was just excited to be having a job ! Luckily I didnt give them any real information though I was planning on it. So stupid.

I just got the same text from Deb at Jobnab.com saying the same thing.

Hi, I'm Anne, based on your resume you match a job I'm filling. If you register at jobnab.com we can discuss the details if you're interested."

Unfortunately like many I got excited and I text her?? or him?? back saying that I was going to register on the site. Fortunately I google the site and all kinds of comments saying that this is a SCAM and did not register. It is important to to fall into this SCAMS, a serious recruiter will call you not send you a text message.

Why isn't stuff like this that takes advantage of jobseekers illegal? I think because the government doesn't want you to know the real unemployment rate, and so counts any listing of a job, even phantom jobs or commission-only jobs, as their 'job creation.' This administration's economic and labor leaders are just as phony as the last one's (remember Elaine Chao, who said offshore outsourcing was good for America?)...

Based on a resume, that I never posted online, I have a possible job, just waiting for me. I only have to register at jobnab.com, and then, only then I assume, the lovely Ann will talk to me about this "open" position. I'm glad I stumbled across this forum. she called on a cellphone based out of Memphis, TN.

Glad I googled this JobNab. Just received a text from "Deb" with 702 area code. I had applied for a job through Yahoo Jobs. Since then I have gotten a call from a place letting me know about degree info and now this. I shoulda known it was a scam. I'm pretty sure mine are coming from the Yahoo. The other jobs I applied for I knew were legit through another site. Beware of Yahoo and P.S. F U SCAMMERS FOR PREYING ON PEOPLE!
