I applied online for a job, but my profile does not involve my qualifications, only my age and my name.
The next day an email was sent to me by a company based in Florida. I was hesitant at first to accept the employment, but due to the crisis happening today I had no other choice but to give it a try. As I got through the final step and I already signed my employee contract.
I got a little suspicious because before I even got to start the job, they asked for me to pay through bitcoin for supplies that I will be needing for the work. Also, I am suspicious about why they would hire someone with no qualifications like me. They tried to reassure me that they are not scamming me, but I am still a bit suspicious.
Should I just trust them and give them money for the "supplies"?
Also, I did not know why I must send it in a currency like bitcoin. BTW, I live in the Philippines.
