I was contacted via text by an individual who identified himself as Robert Harley. He offered me an Entry Level Data Entry position for $26.00 per hour. He encouraged me to download the Telegram App and participate in a "typing/chatting" interview.

Type of a scam Employment
I have been applying for multiplre positions on various job sites. Yesterday i received the following text message:
This is Mr Ashton Riley from Monadelphous Group Ltd., Your resume have been reviewed by the Human Resources of the company for a Customer Service/Data Entry/Administrative Assistant Job position with a pay of $32 per hour. You have been shortlisted for a Job briefing and Interview with our company. I would like to know if you are still interested in the job position?
After ai asked a couple of question i was told to download the telegram app and connect to Sebastian Finn in human resources to confirm an interview for monday.
Once i did that i started trying to look up the company and the names that were provided. The company was based in Australia and i saw no evidence of them having offices in ny. Also could not find any evidence that these people worked for this company on social media.
Started looking up job scams and what i received mirrored so many scams that were being reported. Luckily i have now deleted the telegram app and caught this before i could have further issues.
