Am I Wrong?

I apply for a job on Zip Reqruiters Administrative Assistsnt. I got a message from them that i didn't understand now 8 days later a woman name Esther had reach out to me saying that the job i apply for was taken and the application was forward to her. She stated how she needs a personal assistant since hers just recently got married and move to Canada. She need me to run errands for her, pick up & drop off mail. The errands can be run in my city/state. She'll pay $400 for 2 days a week and would send out the first check before the job even begins. If i consider she needs my information including if i have a bank or not. The main thing that had struck me was towards the end of the email. If i do a good job, then when she comes back we would meet and dicuss more to see if it will be a permanent position for me. In the whole email she never stated that she was out of town. I know that things happen and people lose their assistants all the time but i don't like the fact that she never stated that she was out of town, the only thing she said when she gets back, get back from where i didn't even know u were out of town. And are u even in my state? I don't feel comfortable giving my bank information through email to someone i don't know and i don't feel this comfortable taking this job so ignore it. Am I wrong

It is a scam. I have gotten similar emails in the past. NEVER give your bank information to anyone you did not initiate a transaction with. They WILL drain your accounts.

SCAM!!! Do Not send any of your banking information nor accept any checks from this person. No one hires and pays you sight unseen, no where in America are people just sending checks to people they haven't even verified yet. Don't fall for it. I know it's hard out there looking for a job, but think of it like this, it will be harder if you end up with check fraud charges against you!
