Scam Description

I was approached by email by their “HR Manager” Savannah Smith. I was told they were offering virtual assistant remote job opportunities and was sent the link to the application and job description. In the email it stated they were based in Hong Kong and were spreading to the US and Europe. I read the job description and it was just too good to be true so I started digging through their website and found their list of higher ups with pictures. With a simple google search it turned out the pictures were stolen from other people. With more looking through their website I found their “testimonials” from their higher ups, the catch was it was the same names and titles but pictures of different people. They also posted certificates for business from Hong Kong and put their address as a big what I presume is an office building, but when I looked it up and went through the directory they weren’t on it.
