Scam title: *edited*

I think I've just been scammed. Below is a section of the proposal that was sent to me: 

**edited for Community Guidelines**

This person claimed to be from Intel and asked me for my full name, address and phone number. 

I knew it was a scam once he said that the company will offer me 401k, benefits and will send me a $100 dollar sign on bonus. Once he said that the check will be sent via email and that I would have to use my mobile banking app to deposit the $100 dollar sign on bonus. I told him this sounds suspicious.  Beware of this listing.

Hi Jennifer, 

I wanted to check if you were able to report this user already? I checked your account and didn't see this client. If you haven't reported this client to the Customer Support Team yet, please send it to me via a private message so that I can go ahead and check on the client's account further.
