Type of a scam Employment

I was contacted after putting my resume on indeed to look for full-time work in my area (GTA, Ontario). They sent me an email from the email: [email protected] They informed me about remote employment with Coinbase but required me to buy Bitcoins with the "companies money". The whole thing felt like they were either phishing for my money of information. The company Coinbase uses @coinbase.com for all company emails so the [email protected] is fake. I warn anyone who receives an email like this to NOT give them your information or go forward with any of the process. After talking with them about the job for a brief time they were very vague and asked me to increase my banking withdrawal limit to purchase Bitcoins.

I have contacted the Company that the scammer used as well as notified the person whom they where impersonating. They offered a remote position to work as a customer service rep. Saying they got my contact information from Indeed. The job that they posted on Indeed was for carloans411.ca. Anyone who says that they are from Coinbase using a gmail account is the scammer. They are asking for personal information such as bank and withdrawal amount. The last step is asking for a photo of your ID.

Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill

I got a message saying that I opened an account with coinbase si i called that number and the guy that answered said that they will delete account and then hung up. So i called him back and he said "what is the problem I already told you we will delete the account". So I asked how he would delete account if he didn’t have the number or anything. He said "listen here [censored] I already told you we would take care of it so stop calling".

I got a message entitled: "Coinbase:Job Offer" from Alvinlee Coinbase .

Here is the message:

They sent a youtube link and a pdf with job description as well. Strangely, the person did not sign their name at the end of the email. I was applying for jobs using only one website and I could not find this company there. I also do not apply to these kinds of jobs, not being very technology-inclined. I am sure that I did not apply to this company. My resume on the jobsite is linked with childcare. I do not have experience. The money amount they are offering seems like way too much and the fact it is in U.S. dollars (I am Canadian) seems suspicious as well. The address in Manitoba is also written strangely. Plus, I would think that a tech company would have a company email and not just have gmail addresses. They seem like a legitimate business, so maybe a scammer is using the company name. I don’t know. I decided it must be a scam and will have had no further contact with them.
