I have recently accepted invitations to interview with two companies: **edited for Community Guidelines**. Both companies appear to be legit, however, when reading both informational backgrounds, duties and type of equipment that will be given I have become suspicious. I have had to create a Google hangout account and they were willing to talk after office hours. I want a legitimate job but I want to make sure that I am not dupped! Please help!!

As a new freelancer you should pretty much ignore all invites you receive, as they will likely be scams, especially if Google Hangouts is mentioned.

 

Spend some time learning first, and then you can start bidding on jobs.
