You should be able to get some info on the company from careerbuilder.com if they are using that site.

Not necessarily.
They may just be sending blind emails not knowing if the address is valid or not.
The only ones that will even open it are job seekers. A reference to careerbuilder is generic. Many jobseekers post their resume on several sites.

If the pkg co. Receives a reply, the email is verified and they continue to phish for recruits to mail their elves.

I don't intend to do it, I was just wondering what the scam is.

Usually it doesn't even get to that point. They send an advance for your first month or expenses & it's over so they tell you to cash it & send back the difference. Of course, after you do, it turns out counterfeit a few weeks later.
