Career Builder Fake Jobs/No Concern By Careerbuilder

Hello everyone..sorry to be missing in action again lately. So...please tell us...any job scams out of the ordinary lately? I did receive a few out of the blue emails saying my long lost relative who died in a plane crash in Africa left $20 million dollars to her husband but I'm somehow the next of kin and I just have to send $500.00 to release the entire $20 million directly to my bank account. Also, worthy of note, I've emailed Careerbuilder related to job scams and asked some pointed questions and asked for answers on why the job scams continue to show up on their website. I also provided a list of questions I'd like to have answered by the company if they are really sincerely interested in my well being as a job seeker. So far, two weeks later I haven't received an answer despite this and showing a link to my email job scams blog. Could it be that Careerbuilder just doesn't care? I'm beginning to think so. Anyone have any comments? I'll be back with more job scams shortly.
