    I got an email from “Mildred Ralston” with the same message. I forwarded it to
    Below is what I got back from them –

    Thank you for contacting CareerBuilder’s Trust and Site Security Team.

  2. Jenny says:

    Got exactly the same message. Also curious.
    From: Mildred Ralston (

  3. Howard Campbell says:

    Received essentially the same email as the other two respondents from a “Mildred Ralston”, representing Vanguard Jobs, using an AOL account. It was quite an impressive email, I must admit. All I had to do was collect checks mailed to me, take a 10%commission, and forward the rest to “Vanguard” at an address in the UK. Complete UK address, etc. After a month, I would receive a “salary check” of $1,000.00 to cover expenses, etc. The more i read it, the more suspicious I became. She listed a number of companies that “Vanguard” does business with, all of them European. She stated that everything I would be doing would be legal under the laws of the UK, the European Union, and the US. If they’re legitimate, why mention that? Anyway, it is the old story; if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. This goes beyond a scam; it sounds like money laundering to me, with my name on it. Nice. I’ve printed out the email, and it will be made available to any member of law enforcement that wishes to see it.

  4. David says:

    Got the same thing….what is wrong with people !!!

  5. Lperrin says:

    Wow I got the same one

  6. Steve says:

    I got the same message. At least I didn’t chase another rainbow.

  7. Steve says:

    Looks like Mildred changed her name to Allison Moore…same email different sender. Cheers…

  8. Liz says:

    Same one with Courney McCarthy now.

  9. Margaret says:

    Not only are such ads on CareerBuilder a, scam, the whole CareerBuilder site is a scam. People should know that using any of their paid services is simply a scam to get your money. Not only will they bill you for services they don’t deliver, they will also bill extra amounts that they don’t tell you about. You only find out about this when you check your credit card. Also, I’m starting to believe that most of the ads they post, the ones you can access for free, are bogus. I recently filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau.

  10. Sam says:

    I received an almost identical message from an Abigail Lash “candidateemail at”. I’m reporting it to the FTC link and others as mentioned above.

  11. Dee Byers says:

    she’s Crystal Gill and she works for Motabits in the UK today.

    Got one myself offering me a IT Manager job that they think i’m qualified for when I don’t even have experience in that field at all .. Not to mention I never even signed up for there services. After I read the program they want you to download . Gives them access to all your browsing history, app’s and pretty much opens your entire PC up for them to look and use at any given time . Scam without a dout.
