She asked me questions like for an interview and stated the duties for the virtual assistant remote. She sent a check to buy the software and work equipment and she emailed me about background check. I provided personal information like school details, job details, name email phone number and also my id. She told me to deposit the check into my bank and send a screenshot at the moment I realized it was a scam
