A recruiter has received death threats from unemployed Australians after sharing some of the worst CVs submitted to break the system.
Superior People Recruitment director Graham Wynn said his company had received countless bogus job applications from people on welfare who had no intention of working.
He said rorters hand in dodgy resumes to meet application requirements for a large number of jobs in order to receive unemployment benefits.
Anti-vaxxers, part-time college students and unmotivated high school dropouts were among the welfare cheaters he caught bribing the system.

Some were deliberately applying for jobs they were not qualified for after seeing adverts from the agency, which operates in Victoria, NSW, Queensland and New Zealand.
After sharing the dodgy applications and CVs, Mr Wynn was attacked by the Australian Unemployed Union, who called on their supporters to boycott his business.
“Such callous disregard for the welfare of Australia’s most vulnerable is absolutely unacceptable,” the union said.
“When the government unveiled the ‘Dobseeker’ hotline, we predicted exactly what would happen: scumbags taking the opportunity to hunt welfare recipients for sport.”
The AUWU called on its members to “avoid using Superior People’s service for their own safety” and suggested that they send an email if they felt their application had been wrongfully rejected.
Mr Wynn said he has no regrets speaking out against those trying to corrupt the system, even though he was targeted by trolls.
“I’ve had horrible emails and phone calls from people saying they wish I were dead, calling me the c-word and a fat sloth,” he told Daily Mail Australia.
“They are angry with the system, I understand that, but I didn’t create the system. If you don’t do the wrong thing, nothing will happen.

Mr Wynn said 20% of applications sent to his recruitment agency came from people he accused of trying to cheat the system.
More than 2,000 applicants have been reported to authorities in just two months.
A CV contained six miserable words – “I don’t have a CV at the ATM”,
Another person wrote in their application: “I meet the job search requirements by applying for this position.”
Mr Wynn said his aim was to catch the small minority of people trying to break the system.
“I’m trying to help these genuine people get jobs, so the union will tell people not to apply for the jobs I offer, isn’t that counterproductive?” he said.
“If there are people trying to find work, they should help them. I don’t understand their logic.
The recruiter said only inappropriate CVs are flagged and then it is up to the authorities to punish those who apply.

“Not everyone reported is penalized. There is only a small minority who abuse the system,’ Mr Wynn said.
In another resume submitted, an anti-vaxxer blamed his unemployment on the state government for mandating the vaccine and refused to receive “an experimental (sic) drug.”
“I was a tough and honest ‘essential worker’ until the Victorian government forced me not to work in Victoria without taking an experimental drug and giving up power over my own body,” it read.
“Meanwhile, the Federal Government insists that there are no medical warrants in Australia.
“In order to maintain the meager amount I receive at Centrelink, I have to apply for 20 jobs a month, although it is unlikely that an employer in Victoria will be able to recruit me. Sorry to waste your time in advance.
A bogus resume submitted by another welfare cheater said he “did 10th grade” and had “absolutely no skills”.
Some candidates deliberately applied for jobs for which they were not qualified, including a cleaner who applied for a position as a materials engineer.
The position required that the candidate have experience in laboratory testing and be accredited by the National Association of Testing Authorities.
A part-time university student said he currently had two casual jobs and could not take another job or he would lose his Centrelink payment
The candidate had experience only as a delivery driver and housekeeper.
Another person applied for a job as a sheet metal worker, even though she only had experience as a babysitter, cleaner, and salesperson.
A candidate was applying for a customer service/administrative position that required two years of experience.
They simply wrote on their resume: “Excellent communication skills. Customer service.’
Mr Wynn said the majority of bogus applications were sent to his recruitment agency by young men.
“I would say most of them are under 25 and under 26 in general,” he said.
“They are mostly male rather than female, certainly under 30 for sure. The more mature ones we get are rarer.

He noted that one of the most frustrating groups was anti-vaxxers who had no valid health or religious excuse to get vaccinated.
Mr Wynn questioned whether they should receive taxpayer relief.
“There are those who say, ‘I refuse to get vaccinated,’ those who are against government mandates, conspiracy theorists,” he said.
“If you’re not vaccinated, not for health or religious reasons, then seriously, you’re not going to get a job. Should you receive alms?
Mr Wynn said he had run his business for 12 years and had successfully helped Australians find work by offering free CV writing courses.
He said it was shocking to learn he had been criticized for only trying to get more people into the job market.
