Type of a scam Employment
I was contacted for remote work for Raytheon Technologies. I was asked a wide range of questions concerning the terms of my employment. I was asked to download and use the telegram app to do an interview. The interview was done via text and the person doing the interview apologized multiple times for the interview format. He had odd syntax to his messages. Lacking spaces in sentences, but no punctuation or spelling errors. The interview went as a regular interview would, otherwise. I was offered a position for remote data entry. I was sent a check and no information about setting up my employee account. After asking about employee log in and a confirmation from an employee email account I was sent an email with a basic w-2 from a gmail account. I was told the check appeared to be fake at the bank and my "employer" told me that I never filled out my paperwork they sent me. This was a week after my new employment was set to begin. I quit my old job to accept this one.
