Hi. For reference I’m underage (F17).
I created a ZipRecruiter account about a week ago because I was applying to some summer jobs.
Someone on ZipRecruiter sent a potential employer (let’s call her X) my resume and profile which included my full name, address, phone number and email.
X offered me to be her personal assistant. I looked her up and she’s a real person. Except, I live in Canada and she (or whoever is being impersonated) lives in the US. She offered to pay $900 per 12h/wk
My teenage brain confirmed my personal information (name, full address, email, phone number). I didn’t provide any other information so unless she/scammer can find other info, I assume this is the only info they have.
X replied saying she will send a business check and her “to do” list. I’m so scared. What do I do? What if she is a scam and now knows these details about me…
I didn’t give my credit card information or bank account so I can’t get financially scammed just yet.
But what if she sends me the cheque or other packages (“mail dispatch/postage” as she worded it in the email). There’s no way for me to confirm her identity right now. Me panic, what to do I do?
