Subject: 100% of "Computer Help Wanted" in today's Bee are fake ads!
Dear Sacramento Bee,
 
The IT job market in Sacramento in terrible. Worse - as I have brought to your attention over the past year - many of the job ads that you run are FAKE -- they are only being run for DOL RIR certification to get green cards for foreign workers.
 
The only computer ad in today's 12/14/2004 Bee is:
Computers Key Business Solutions, Inc a software development & consulting co seeking Junior & Senior Software Engineers Database Administrators Programmer Analysts for Sacramento ofc. Salary commensurate w/experience Fax resume 916 646 2081 or email at: jobs@key-soft.com Location: SACRAMENTO,  CA 95852  Document ID: LA11577223   Ad Number:
The only openings on their website were posted nearly a year ago, and are for New Hampshire: 
http://www.key-soft.com/opport.htm
 
Consistent with fake RIR ads, there is not a single SKILL listed in the ad. I phoned 916 646-2080 (a guess based on fax #), a guy with an Indian accent just said 'Hello?" I said "I saw your ad for Key Business Solutions in today's Bee, but there are no skills listed." He said, "yes, basically we are just looking for VB, VB.NET, C#, that sort of thing." I thanked him and hung up.
 
Consistent with the pattern of visa abuse, the President has a middle-east (Indian?) name: NATARAJAN GUTTA
 
As our data at www.programmersguild.org/RIR/ shows, Key Business Solutions has already been granted green cards based on prior fake ads they have run.
 
As the LCA Database shows, Key has applied for several H-1B workers in the past year. (Why don't they run help-wanted BEFORE applying for LCAs?)
 
EDD and DOL: Will you please stop granting Green Cards based on such shams?  You are charged with protecting U.S. workers.
 
Sacramento Bee: Will you please investigate and report the extent that your publications are being used for fraudulent purposes - for job ads that are run with the intent of NOT hiring U.S. workers?
 
STOP DEFRAUDING YOUR READERS AND SUBSCRIBERS!!!
 
Sincerely,
Mr Kim Berry
