We are currently hiring from home to help decrease the rate of unemployment by creating employment opportunities for our expansion into the U.S
He took my interview via skype the next day and then offered a job saying that the bank wants to hire you to expand and open new offices in NY.
He send me offer letter, a direct deposit form, W4 form and company executive signed letters. Everything seemed very legit. and I filled in form and signed the documents and sent my DL front and back.
He told me that I will undergo 1 week training and then my job will begin.
I started feeling doubts when he did not sent any training information and mentioned about a check being mailed to me for office expense.
Then I closed my bank accounts and put a fraud alert on my credit file with the 3 credit agencies and monitoring for any fraud.
The person never contacted me.
