First, I was asked to send my CV, which I did in docx format and then I was asked to send in pdf, which I did. But after that I was asked to send my personal data in google link 😕

Something felt off cuz why the hell was I asked for CV and Biodata earlier?? And it's not the first time I faced frauds in job portals. There's way more of them (and a few potential rapists) then genuine employers ☹️

P.S. the link wasn't showing as spam, I just threw the line cuz I was suspicious. And I have seen creative ways of collecting personal data and selling them b4.

Me and the people I know have applied everywhere - linkedin, indeed, etc.

Some sites have very bad policy regarding privacy , and have scammer allover the site . I can't recall exactly but in one of the site (may be naukri.com) someone contacted me 6-7 years ago about the job in the company and have sent them fake degree ( with different name)with fail number still got selected as per them 😅 . And they ask for some registration fees and that's all I removed all the info from xyz sites and only build LinkedIn profile. And after covid these scammer are finding new to scam , recently came to know about online job scam (like , share job) . Those are completely fake.

And some suggested above about alternate number @UnderNation , it's very  good suggestion and may help in reducing scam.
