Type of a scam Employment
Scammer e-mailed me, likely getting my e-mail from my resume uploaded on Indeed. They offered me a job in their business (even though I have no business experience whatsoever and did not apply to them). Upon reviewing their website, I found that they used fake names and stole photos for their president and board of directors (taken from a random company in Alaska: https://www.ahtna-inc.com/about/management/). They did not attempt to take money from me as I stopped contacting them once I was suspicious. The e-mailer tends to repeatedly e-mail you asking you to complete their employment questionnaire. Written in somewhat bad English. Example below:
