    Hi,

    I saw a post on one of your forums regarding something similar so I thought I'd report this. I just received a text from a random 410 area code number saying that I've qualified for some job I applied for and to click a link. This is the url they provided:

    https://form.jotform.com/91714908717162


    I'm pretty sure it's a scam, as they referred to me as "Candidate" instead of using my actual name.....and there's also a lot of random capitalization happening in the message, haha. Thought I'd let you all know so that you can hopefully shut it down before someone falls for it.


    Thanks!!
