I’ve apparently made it to “round 2” in the hiring process for a remote position as a web developer. Those of you who’ve been following my saga will know how important this could be for me. It’s a fully remote position and full time with flexible hours. Even the interviewing would be remote, by Skype. This would fit my current situation perfectly.
Maybe I’m being paranoid but the interviewing process seems odd and I’m concerned about it being a scam.
This is from an email I received (I’m blanking out identifying info).
The paid test seems unusual, especially the part about asking me for a quote to take the test.
I can imagine a scenario where they could send too much, ask me to send back the difference and then also reverse their PayPal payment. Is that possible with PayPal?
Is there some other scam scenario possible?
