I don’t understand, what does this mean? How can it be a scam? The guy told me to show up at that address for an interview. Should I go? Or is CareerBuilder just being stupid and I should go?

Please tell me what this means.

A disclaimer sent to everyone.
Careful with career builder.
You will get a lot of jobs on commission only that you have to find your own clients. Not the best type of work.

    Careerbuilder is not being stupid. They are protecting themselves from lawsuits. They are just telling you that they have not reviewed any emails being sent from their site and that they are aware scammers often post fake jobs so you have to do your own research to verify if a company is legit as Careerbuilder is not doing that
