Type of a scam Employment
I was contacted by this company and i was told that they found me through indeed. They offered me a job and i spoke to kelly and another woman on the phone at some point. Majority of our interaction is through email or a messaging app called telegram. They offer $25 an hour. I cannot find anything about this company in google besides another individual asking the same questions i am regarding this "job opportunity" they havent asked me for any personal information besides my direct deposit details. They have a website but i am still not sure what to think of this situation. They assigned me a project asking me to do a presentation about my city in pdf format. They also gave me a run down of clocking in and out expectations.. they said they are located in halifax NS and they are soon opening a location in my city which is exactly what the other individual stated when i read their forum in yahoo. The location of the other individual is unkown.
Type of a scam Employment
I have noticed other puzzled people on chat rooms that have had the same offer and are wondering if this is a scam. IT CERTAINLY IS!!
I applied for this job through Indeed.ca… which in my ignorance thought that all companies listed there were legit. that’s on me feel a little foolish but I had to pursue this to it’s end so others won’t be fooled by this just to confirm you email address.
18 days ago I was applying for jobs in desperation I applied for this position on indeed.ca it looks legit until you peal back some of the layers.
I called the number… "Kelly" will answer on a very sketchy cell phone reception.
Soon after I had responded to "Kelly Baker" – obviously fake name that I was going to report this to my local police dept. if I did not hear from her within 24 hours. No response at all.
