Google Job Offer Scam
This type of scam operates by telling people they have been given a job with Google or another company. However, you have to pay a training fee (or some other type of fee) before you can start. In addition, you are asked to complete employment forms requiring that you provide your personal identifying information. The scam artist may even insist on conducting an “interview” through Google Hangouts.


In reality, you have not been given a job with Google, but rather you may have been tricked into sending money to a scam artist.

If you were contacted by email from a Gmail address, you can report abuse (http://support.google.com/mail/bin/request.py?contact_type=abuse) to help Google take appropriate action on accounts involved in this scam.
