    Hi, 

    i have been applying to a lot of jobs lately and I got a text message from someone named Alex Garcia saying he had a job opening. He then sent me a link for the job application which I have provided. I am also going to screenshot that text he sent as well and attach it. 

    Please let me know if this is real or a scam. I have read online that there are a lot of scammers using this platform now which is unfortunate. 

    Thank you

    I have checked the form and the account is under a free email provider address (gmail), it's a bit suspicious that the user does not use a corporate email address. I will suspend the account for now and they will need to provide some sort of business proof in order to get it reactivated again. 

    Thanks.

    Thanks Kevin,

    its definitely a scam. He sent me an email asking me to deposit funds in my bank. RED FLAG. I have blocked him.

    My colleague Kevin already suspended the user. The form is now disabled.

    Thank you for the additional information. We appreciate your time for reporting this.
