JTL Logistics Job Scam Email

Well, in time I just received an email after posting a valid resume to what appeared to be a valid job on Careerbuilder. I get so very tired that Careerbuilder won't remove a job scam after it being flagged nor do they respond to detailed information regarding a scam and removing the fake job on their service. It's really like they do not care about job seekers being scammed. I hate to say it but I feel it's true.
