Scam Description

I received a text from Hello, Paul Taylor a recruiter for Jill Podell Interiors. This message is in regard to your resumé which suits our remote data entry specialist job position. For more details reply “YES” if interested. This is a remote data entry specialist position at Jill Podell Interiors. The pay is $28 per hour. Do you have issues working from home? To schedule an interview with the hiring manager, simply add him, Eric Miles, on TEAMS, SKYPE or Zoom by searching for his email hr.eric.miles2@outlook.com and send him this referral code;IN-DAES-JPI. Best of luck with the interview Downloaded Skype sent in code received response and received an immediate on line interview at 5:44pm which lasted for 2 hours. Got job immediately, emailed me employment documentation, employment contract, I emailed it back with my license, photo and social security card for identification for employment documentation for I-9. Everything look legitimate. They overnighted me a check for $3,660.45 for my start-up office equipment and $100 sign up bonus. By then I knew it was a scam. I put a freeze on all my credit services, did not cash the check. I don’t want this to happen to anyone else. He is changing his email address. He is still on LinkedIn. They are still posting job on Monster.com, Wizehire. I got job on Indeed
