Job seekers beware of gmail addresses on Craig's List
Heads up for anyone looking for work on craigslist:
If an employment ad has you reply to a gmail address, check it out carefully. You'll probably be sent a link to a "HR site" or "job board" to complete the application.
There IS no application. It's an info collection site for SPAMMers and scammers.
This appears to be all over the country.
Whenever I see a gmail address now I open another tab and google it.
For instance, this ad is in the nooga CL now:
