The following is an exact quote from an employers website. Obviously they have suffered many fake Job postings on job boards by dodgy recruitment agencies.
When will the government wake up and legislate against the scum in the recruitment industry?


"The ****** Group takes recruitment fraud very seriously and we would advise any job seekers to be vigilant about fake job offers from companies or individuals claiming they are recruiting on behalf of The ****** Group.

To help identify a genuine vacancy from The ****** Group, all our vacancies are managed through our HR department and are posted online, either on our website or via a recognised recruitment portal. We never include email addresses for individual employees on job advertisements and we will never email a job offer or opportunity before an interview has taken place. When applying through our website, you will receive an automated reply which will appear on the page after successful submission - you will not receive an email stating that we have received your application.

If you are still unsure, here are some additional ways to help identify recruitment fraud:
Early requests for personal information.
Requirement to complete employment paperwork prior to an interview or verbal or written job offer.
Requirement to provide money – The ****** Group NEVER asks for money.
Correspondence signed off with a ****** Group employee’s name and details – staff information will only be provided if you are successful in reaching the interview stage.
If you suspect you have been a victim of recruitment fraud, please contact your local police as soon as possible"

RIP.  It could have been quite good if the owner had bothered with it!

There is a Do It Yourself catagory under the Home Owners section.
ASsk away.
Much more happening than on this totally DEAD forum.
Just 49 posts in the last 15 months!
This is despite there being another 172 new members over the same period - all presumably dumping their website links in their profiles!
Its mainly used by spammers now.

But no posts!
Not yet.  Apart from some comments on energy and other utility companies I don't have much to add.  Good forum though, just not particularly matched to my circumstances.

I've got a bit of DIY to do for example, general home maintenance when your home is 30 years old.

Another similar article by an honest yet dishonest, but anonymous recruiter:

I lie to candidates every day. You just can’t tell people the truth. Often, the reason why you won’t get a job is because you’re a bit weird or your trousers are too short. I can’t tell people these things.

Some of the stupid questions they ask you beggar belief.

Give us some examples, could do with a laugh...

I was looking for an accounts person who was "sh*t hot on excel", confidently used pivot tables and copy, paste and generally reconcile bank accounts quickly.  The cv's I was offered basically had the word "Excel" in them, that was all.

Crap really.

Tried to source the candidate myself and call me picky if you will, but if your application doesn't come with an intro letter (or email preferably) then it goes on the "no" pile.  Of the 100 odd applicants only 6 were on the "maybe" pile, yes SIX out of over a hundred people actually bothered to introduce themselves.

And of those six, none were suitable as I don't want a bloody qualified accountant, just someone with a quick mind will do.  The search continues....

Not known for their grasp of geography or common sense at the best of times, this recession has resulted in most agencies employing young inexperienced staff to deal with candidates and vacancies, after getting rid of the more expensive regular staff over the last year or so.
Some of the stupid questions they ask you beggar belief.
Why anyone would put their potential career in the hands of these kids is a mystery.

On a personal level I am pleased that the agencies are having a bad time and hope many will go out of business altogether.
They are not needed, not ethical and not professional.

It's time the company HR departments did what they are paid for!
