People claiming to be employers will run through the resume websites and contact people, offering enticing jobs and asking for completed application forms. They then sell the details to identity thieves. So - one application with innocent questions gets y0ur ID stolen. Don't apply to places that give a phone number, website address or a PO Box as the only means of contact. Unless they have a visitable and verifiable address, don't apply. There is a variation on this scam with the scammers advertising fake jobs on well-known jobs websites.
