I recently applied for a WFH Data Entry position. I was contacted by a recruiter via text and asked to download an app to complete an interview. I downloaded the app and the "interview" was conducted via messages, no phone call, no video chat, just messages. I was advised I got the position. They have advised me that the company will provide the laptop and other office supplies needed. I have been informed the funds for these office supplies will be provided; once I receive the funds, I will need to order the supplies through an authorized vendor which every employee has been using for years. Is this the new normal? I have never interviewed like this before and between the pay rate, ordering supplies and interview process; I guess I'm a little skeptical. I did look up the company via google & LinkedIn, I found the company and recruiter, it looks legit however I am still questioning it. Has anyone else had this experience? Does it sound like a scam? Do you have any advise? #advice #scams
It's a scam. I contacted the company directly and they said they will in no way do this.
Same here... i am so skeptical but i also need the work
This just happened to me today! I was looking for answers to see if I may of been scammed. I honestly have no idea
