Matt Ferguson, CareerBuilder's CEO has Criminal Record

It is no wonder that Career Builder works with so many scams. Their CEO has tw fraud convictions from the 80’s and 90’s. Both cases ivolved bilking investors for milions of dollars.

You can find details in the 8k filings with the SEC. They did try to bury it though - hehe

Re: Matt Ferguson, CareerBuilder's CEO has Criminal Record

This is a very serious accusation. Unless Scam.com wants to get a reputation of being a scam, one should ferret out this stuff before it gets posted. If you can post the SEC 8k filing link, that would lend credibility to the story. othewise you are just perpetuating a bad rumor!

Re: Matt Ferguson, CareerBuilder's CEO has Criminal Record

I was a fraternity brother of Matt's. He is a man of integrity. Why do people insist on tearing down someone that is doing well for themselves. Here's an idea.....go on careerbuilder.com and get yourself a better job so that you too can experience what other successful people have. Self-esteem!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Matt Ferguson, CareerBuilder's CEO has Criminal Record

I did get a real job through Careerbuilder but I will not hesitate to say that they will take any "employer" who pays them to put up an ad, whether it's MLM, a real job, or anything else.

My local newspapers, monster.com, and many other sites do this for money.

It's not "tearing someone down." It's the truth! People take money even when they know it's wrong.

Buyer beware!

Re: Matt Ferguson, CareerBuilder's CEO has Criminal Record

It is one thing to have issues with the way careerbuilder does business, but that has nothing to do with the personal attack on Matt Ferguson. I still do not see any postings of anything that supports Matt was involved in any wrong doing. Try to keep focused on your attack!

Matt is in no way a criminal.

I know him personally to be a fine person and an inovator.

irony in their website

HaHa... That's why everyone keeps going to jobbi.com instead. Matt is so shady, he can't help but scam his customers and charge them absurdly for his lies. Thanks Matt!

Re: Matt Ferguson, CareerBuilder's CEO has Crimina

for all thjose that wanted proof of matt ferguson's "misdealings" and associations, check out this 8k report. This has to do with FoxHollow and Lumend Stock. Check out the position he was given with no real qualifications for it and check out his bro-in-law. It is the guy who was really screwing up-Duke Rohlen. http://securities.stanford.edu/1036/...01m_064595.pdf

Re: Matt Ferguson, CareerBuilder's CEO has Crimina

Look at Section VI: LOSS CAUSATION/ECONOMIC LOSS Matt Ferguson was a named defendant and was accused of the same things as the pther defendant. I just picked this section as a referral point. Please read it all. JP Morgan was even looking into the stock, esp. after it fell so rapidly after it's values were artificially inflated and three people resigned b/c they, basically, did not want to comply with orders from the defendants.

Re: Matt Ferguson, CareerBuilder's CEO has Crimina

Hey, "The Dude". I will accept responsibility for not looking into the correct Matt Ferguson, IF this is the wrong Matt Ferguson. I was simply replying to old posts I saw and my fault was to ASSUME that all these many many different people had the actual guy. My bad. I know one thing-when I START a conversation I have all the facts. So if this is the wrong Matt Ferguson I apologize, but calling me and the rest of us a "waste of time" I don't appreciate that. I guess I believed it without checking to see if it was the same guy simply because I have WORKED FOR CAREERBUILDER and they engage in MANY MISLEADING TACTICS and INFORMATION about their website. Trust me THE DUDE, I should know-along with many others who wroked for them and felt the same way.

This is the problem with sites that aren't moderated. The fellow who started this rumor committed libel and others jumped on.
