oh dear, it seems that jobsites facebook page is awash with people who have been spammed. it would seem that they gave access to people who shouldnt have had it. bear in mind CV's have names and addresses on them!

im pretty pissed off at this now.

and rightly so.
Names, address's date of birth, contact numbers, everything a credit scammer needs, and then of course there's the spam.

Legit? Hell no, we don't use the word Vacation in the UK.

Looks like someone who has you in their address book has got raided no? Or did you register on this site as yorkshirepud? And why would there be a 'puds email' reference?
