I replied back with qualified skills, and then an email was sent back stating i had the job and they would be sending an acceptance letter with a check to set up my mini office. I did not feel comfortable receiving a check that I would have to deposit in order to get cash. I sent Virtour a rejection email today stating I was not interested abd to stop the check from coming to me.
No response to that email yet?
The only personal information shared my name, address and financial institution.
I am thankful and confident that I made the right decision not to pursue.
