Job posted on idealist.org as a "Data Entry/Administrative Assistant" for *** ***.
Was emailed regarding the position, said they wanted to do an online interview the next day.
Following a brief online interview, was sent employment offer letter, was asked to sign and send basic info – name, address, phone – along with image of driver’s license.
Was told they would be sending me a check to purchase specific equipment previously mentioned in the interview.

Called Navy Federal to verify the legitimacy of the check and it was fraudulent.
Luckily this was as far as I got in the experience.
