    I had the same thing happen to me - the job posting was a legit company in the area and unaware that they were being used as part of the scam. By the time I figured out that this was a scam, I had already been billed for the credit report. The person who contacted me was:

    [email protected]screening.org

    BUT gmail actually provided the server from which the mail was sent:

    Kim R. via zara.nseasy.com

    If you google zara.nseasy.com you can find the isp, etc.

    I don't know where to report this, but I would love to - it's bad enough to be unemployed, but to get scammed AND have it cost money that you don't have is wrong.

    I tried to send something to *****list, but they send back a form letter basically telling you you're on your own.
