I applied to a remote job on indeed North America (job listing had Louisville, KY as location), and overnight , without interview, they gave me an offer letter saying I was selected and I'll be a part time assistant manager, and job was to go to super markets and snap pictures.
And they sent me a document in which I was supposed to fill , to get started on job.
- ** bank name (they specified only chase, BoFa , Wells Fargo and US Bank )
- bank account number,
- routing number ,
- full name and
- date of birth. (they didn't ask for ssn)
- phone number**.
The document has a one line company address based out of Buenos Aires Argentina. It has company logo on all pages, no letter head nothing.
But the guy who sent me email said the office was in Sweden but none in US and gave one address. I google that address it shows some other company name.
If I were to provide my full name date of birth and Bank account + routing number, and in case it turns out to be an elaborate scam, can the miscreants wreak havoc like steal from my account , make purchases or sell my info on the deepweb/darkweb/darknet/whatever , ??
I looked at : Is it safe to give out one's bank account number?
and http://www.nbcnews.com/id/7914159/ns/technology_and_science-security/t/easy-check-fraud-technique-draws-scrutiny/#.WnudiHWnEYM but that didn't satisfactorily answer my question.
I called my bank (bofa) thrice, each time I was put on hold for >1hour and call got disconnected.
PS: In 2015, after signing up for one vpn (private internet access) and connecting to it via my mobile phone, my entire bofa checkings account was emptied in less than an hour with purchases being made all over the world.
Bofa gave me my money after a week. ^
