Job offer spam from yourcareersite.com and other domains

Since November 2007 we received a number of queries about job offers from a number of domains that were all very similar. A Google search turned up an existing page at Consumerfraudreporting.org that mentioned several of the domains. The job offers look dubious.

The domains appear to be part of "The Career Network" / "Internet Solutions Corp." / "Veriresume", see this thread.
