Ask Emily !

He sent you a picture too? I'm near certain that was not actually his picture but was being used fraudulently. Scammers frequently use photos of other people to try to fool their victims. It's likely that people whose pictures were stolen don't even know that their photos are being used in such an evil manner! It's funny how much scammers will include in their emails to "prove" that they're legit. No REAL interview inquiry would ever include an attached photo of the recruiter, why on earth would it? Glad you could see through these scammers!

I received 2 of those just yesterday. Once I started my online interview on google hangouts I knew something wasn't right. And when I was asked to open an acct at IBERIABANK & I told them preferred not to have one, there wasn't anymore conversation. Deleted hangouts app! I'm so glad I saw this!
