Monster.Com warns about new identity theft method

According to an article on CNet, some people have fallen prey to a new identity theft scheme.

The basic outline is that the perpetrators post a job on Monster (or some other service) and wait for the CVs and applications to roll in. If they need more info about you, they just request additional data via email as part of the "interview" process. To top it off, many people include unnecessary personal data on their CVs, thus it isn't necessary to contact them later.

In the end, it's the same old story: be careful with your personal information, it is yours and should stay that way.
