I contacted CareerBuilder about the message I received. I went to the CareerBuilder website, which you can find proper spelling, etc. by searching Google or Bing. I found a contact email for reporting spam. This is the message I sent to them :
I received the following email that appears to be sent through CareerBuilder, from someone named Steven Brandon. At the bottom of the message, he signs himself as the HR & Operational Manager, but doesn’t list the company name or any direct contact information, only online links. I think it looks like a scam email, involving CareerBuilder, is there someone associated with CareerBuilder who would have sent this message? Please let me know if this is legitimate or not.
