Hello I am new here to this site and of course looking for employment.

 

wouldn't you know they very first offer I received is of course a scam, I have received jobs offers before that were scams and so now I am very leery and check twice. 

 

This posting is for **edited for Community Guidelines** which yes is a real company, but the offer is not real.

 

When they emailed me the job offer they made a crucial mistake, the wrong name was on the document and the wrong dates. Therefore to confirm my suspicions I contacted the real company and sent them the documents Their email back to me is what I suspected a scam... below is the original posting please beware applying for this position. They are looking to steal you bank account information.

Michelle,

Don't take it personally.

 

As a new contractor, it is normal for you to be invited to many scam jobs. It is also normal for you to apply to scam jobs and have a few rough experiences initially.

 

After you have a little more experience, you won't run into this very much, if at all.

 

I have been using Upwork a little more than a year. I regularly receive job invitations, but I never receive invitations to scam jobs. So that's something you can look forward to.

 

Feel free to post questions here in the Community Forum as you get invitations and consider jobs to apply to. We'll be able to help you quickly identify which are scams.
