Type of a scam Employment

I first found out about this “job” on Indeed while doing my usual job search. It sounded absolutely perfect so I applied. It said I could choose the hours I worked, either 9-5, 9-1 or 1-5. The pay was especially impressive. The hourly rate was to be $24/hr or $46,000/yr! Since the schools have been shut down again I thought this would be something I could work into my schedule since my husband works in the afternoons. Then, without even so much as an interview, I was offered probationary employment as a Financial Administrative Assistant. After they confirmed that I had a smartphone, I received something called a Training Period Agreement which was to last 20 working days. I was speaking with my career counsellor yesterday, who told me to not give her any additional information and that this had scam written all over it. I am attaching the document I received this morning from Maria Kruse, Regional Manager of Total-IT Solutions. She asked for me to attach a piece of ID (driver’s license, passport, or State ID). The email she sent me had very poor English as well as many grammatical errors.

Type of a scam Employment

I’ve been looking for work and an email came in offering me a chance to apply for a position as an Administrative Assistant. They provided a web site with the job description. Upon first glance, I looked over some oddities. Like, how there were no phone numbers provided, physical address, and just the flow of the email. I didn’t catch this at first and told them I was interested. It was the second email offering me a probationary position that really raised the flags. First, the wording was changed. Administrative Assistant became Financial Administrative Assistant. Then a line in the email read “you will receive your payments to your account online, then withdraw cash from the bank branches and buying digital funds in the specialized ATM’s”. That’s a direct quote, no editing on my part. The form they attached for me to fill out required my credit card number, they also wanted proof of my identity (a photo of my driver’s license, passport or state ID).
