All of the interviews that I am getting are asking me chat in google hangout. I am new to this, so my question is; are they not supposed to do that. They also tell me that I will be working for that company as an independent contractor and will be paid via direct deposit, paper check, or via a card from the company. Are they supposed to do that?

These are all scams.

If you continue communicating with these Google Hangouts scammers and do what they ask you to, they will steal $3000 from your checking account.


These are not real jobs.


For now, as a newbie, you need to ignore ALL invitations that you receive out of the blue.


Focus ONLY on jobs that you personally found and submitted job proposals to.
