Career Builder Job Scam

30 11 2010

Our readers have sent us a copy of the Career Builder Job Scam email that is floating around. This is a scam that is being dished out by Tmkrms.com. The email is from some Honest person that calls himself David Cohen.

The Site appears to be legit. But when you look at the links it  has  no useful company data. It only is asking users for personal info. It looks a lot like a Phishing Site.

The site only has a couple of email links on the bottom of the page. postmaster@tmkrms.com <postmaster@tmkrms.com> and abuse@tmkrms.com <abuse@tmkrms.com>

Nice try Honest  David at Torchmark Corporation (TMK)!!!
