I was told to go to the Walmart in Vicksburg,Mississippi and pass out samples of blueberries . I was told to ask for a woman named Ms.Glen. I went there and asked for her and they said she doesn’t exist. Let alone advantage solutions didnt give me a last name for her. I asked Walmart if they worked with advantage solutions and they said they never heard of it. They asked for two proofs of citizenship and I gave them my social security card number and my license number. I don’t know if they will use my i

Type of a scam Employment
I went on Indeed and Monster searching for employment in my area. I live in rather a small farming community, so it is not uncommon for large out-of-state companies to source-in and post jobs. I saw a job listed as "event specialist" posted by a company called Advantage Solutions. In essence, the job was for those individuals you see at grocery stores handing out samples of different foods. I quickly applied because the position was part-time, I met the requirements, and I thought that it would look good on my resume since I was getting my foot in the door working with food. An out-of-state number called me within a matter of days, a recruiter, who asked me rudimentary questions. I then followed up with an actual hiring personnel who said I had the job, if I wanted it. This is when things started to go downhill. Every time the company called me, it was from a different number and speaking to somebody new. Most of the emails were never the same, but being a small town person, I figured that is just how larger corporations function. I filled out the usual employee paperwork: name, address, medical information, etc. I then filled out my tax forms as needed. What now strikes me as odd, but did not then, is they needed a second form of identification, so now not only do they have my social security number, they have my passport number as well. They then said they needed to run a credit report since I would be issued a company credit card for purchasing items. Again, at the time, I thought nothing of it. Lastly, for direct deposit, they said they needed my bank account and routing number, which I gave because in my mind, most jobs do direct deposit. After two weeks of waiting and not being employed, I finally get an email stating I can begin online training. During my initial phone interview, the woman I spoke with explicitly said that there would only be two training videos/certifications I would have to do. The email I got, with the long-in access they gave me, clearly showed there were at least three, if not more. The problem is, when I tried to access the site that they gave me, I could log in initially, but then the screen would turn white. When I contacted someone about it, they said that "the system was down, try again later." Not only that, each part of the job required a different website log-in. To do your training videos you logged into this website, to view your hiring progress, you logged into this website. It seems to me, a legitimate business would have everything on one cohesive website, or at least the same log-in for everything. It has now been two weeks of me technically hired yet not started working, so I sent them an official letter of resignation the other day. I did not hear back from them at all, just my access from their three separate website log-ins has been denied. These people have all of my credentials and I am terrified they are going to steal my identity.
