I don't see anybody warning ME about scammers, bad employment agencies, etc.

Buyer beware; it's on each individual to investigate who the other party is. I don't work for the Attorney general, or EEOC. I don't work for the consumer affairs, better business, or whoever.
YOU grow the hell up. I don't know who the hell you think you're talking to here. And you don't know my age so leave age out of it...


But yet you come here asking advice lol


I hope the only jobs you find are scams now, just to torture you for your baditude lol

It doesn't take a genius or effort to inform the public about these scams.

Again, act your age.

So asking you to be courteous is being nasty?

Please.

I'm job searching. I don't have time or $ to snitch on others or file grievances. I only have a certain amount of free minutes per month on my cell. Not going to waste that. I'm not asking advice on what to do. I'm just relating "this is what happened". This is what's going on out there with job seekers.
I would be careful with newspaper ads and Craigslist as well. Ask them lots of questions up front, and if something seems dodgy, follow your instincts and avoid it. Certainly don't send them a résumé and personal information without knowing who or what they are. You were right to search on Facebook etc.

As for reporting a bogus ad, it comes down to "Do unto others..." Maybe you wasted all that time with this ad because some previous applicant didn't bother reporting it.

It's been my experience that what goes around, comes around. If you're a good person, people sense it and do good things for you. If I'm self centered, people resent it and will not extend themselves for me.
