Hello everyone. I wanted to warn all designers there are scam artists looking to get personal information from you all. I am currently unemployed and I have been looking for almost a year. I got contacted on Indeed.com the other day and was very excited.
A very prominent agency, Ammunition Group, was interested in possibly hiring me as a freelance graphic designer for good pay, benefits, and I could work remotely. I was a bit hesitant, and although I am trying to leave the art director/graphic design jobs I thought it was too good to pass up.
I gave them my resume (already public and the number on it is my google number, not my cell) and my website link.
They emailed me, and that was the red flag. They said I should contact them at a gmail address. I contacted the real agency and sure enough – it is a scam.
Be safe out there and always be on guard.
