| fake autodesk employment scam using from Susanj.alexander autodessk.org |
Contacted by text about a job interview with \"Autodesk\" for remote work. It was not in my target zone, but I am always willing to listen. Ignored the texts, but they got real pushy I took the interview with \"Susanj.alexander,\" but was suspicious once I was asked if I bank accounts and credit cards and their english us and syntax was very poor. But I felt them out. Of course, I got the \"job.\" I asked for an email or call from someone from the company, after \"they talked to HR,\" A number of hours later, I got a congrats email from firstname.lastname@example.org... (opened in a clean browser) and more pushy texts. Yea, that is not the corporate domain or even a good bluff of it. What would I not check?
Luckily the online info they got from me is already publicly available. But I have upped my defenses of my identity online and the security of my browsers and changed all my passwords in a methodical way to prevent future social hacking.
If you are hanging a bit more leg out looking for work, just remember you are putting yourself at risk for getting phished or scammed. I learned the hard way.
