I applied for a job entitled 'Freelance Market Research', within 2 hours I recieved an e-mail informing me that I had the job. Already set alarm bells ringing so I said I would be delighted to possibly join the team but could I have more information.
I was then informed that my first task would be receiving a cheque in the post and I was to deduct £640 as my 'wages' and the rest was to be used at a MoneyGram outlet.. to 'review' their service.
Now I know this is shady as hell and I replied saying I was no longer interested, but I feel a little anxious that this company now has my address and phone number.. if this cheque was to still be mailed to me could I just ignore it and destroy it and nothing more could come of it?
I'm guessing that as long as I dont go through with the task or attempting to cash the cheque I'm not doing anything that could get me into bother with the Law right?
Thanks in advance for any advice and sorry it's so long. <3
