Scam Description

I was sent An email stating that I was invited for an interview and to contact Mrs. Carla Batan on telegram for the interview process she never contacted me over the phone we just texted and she ended up giving me the job without much thought. I was a little confused but I continued to share my information with her.The next morning I got an offer letter that seemed a bit off because the HR who had made the document didn’t sign their name and it looked like it had been taken from the Internet. She then asked me to give her my T-Mobile login and password so that they could order some gadgets for me paid by the company and sent to my house. I thought that was odd and that I didn’t need to share my information to receive gadgets from a company so I looked up the company and I asked if that was something that they did and the answer was no so I checked on BBB scams and there was another person who had the exact same story as me regarding the same situation. In the beginning they told me that this was a remote position and that there was going to be a taskus company coming to my city soon in which I can work in the office. I do not believe that this is the actual Taskus company even though I haven’t heard good things about them as well. They said that they were going to start me out at 15 an hour and that I would beginning 25 an hour after training. Honestly that was a red flag within itself watch out for these people and watch out for offers online that seem too good to be true.
