    Hi there,

    I recently received a text message "Hello, received your application from my indeed job ads, your Resume has been reviewed and approved. Please click the link for more info, if you are still interested. (link below)

    On the jotform page, it says

    "Dear Applicant

    My Name is Kevin Cruz, I received your email/cv via indeed in respect of the job vacancy, thank you for your interest. I have reviewed your email and you have been selected as a potential candidate for a Personal Assistant position pending background checks. I'm consistently out of town lately due to my work & tight schedule so I need a back up Assistant.

    Your duties are as follows:

    yada yada yada..."

    Given that I have been actively applying for jobs right and left, I filled out the form without thinking. Now, upon searching online, this looks to be a phishing scam. Can you please confirm and take action if indeed the case? Thank you.

    It was indeed a scam. We've taken down the form and suspended the account associated with it so this scammer won't be able to access the submission data. Thank you for reporting!
