I contacted the person I met through a job advertisement I saw on social media as a freelancer. They told me about a freelance retype job posting, and I accepted it. They sent me an Atlassian Community contract, which I signed and sent back. Subsequently, I received an email from Atlassian Community with the following content:"
Welcome to our Atlassian's Team, our future is rooted in helping freelance teams unleash their potential by building tools that inspire collaboration and facilitate growth — interested in what’s next? We’re looking for people who believe that we can accomplish so much more together than apart and you're one.
We're actively hiring! Spend a few moments learning about our open roles and approach to virtual interviewing, hiring, and onboarding.
Whether you’re in an office or working remotely it’s our goal to make everyone feel at home.
" "Is this job real??????"
I have never seen anything like that posted or discussed in the community. I will tag the post to see if someone from Atlassian can comment.
I didn't complete the project because I thought the person who offered it to me was a scammer. They had supposedly given me a 5-day deadline, and on the 5th day, I sent them an email, had a little conversation, and told them they were a scammer. After that, they closed their account and disappeared. Does your organization have any involvement in such matters?
@Solomon Kane I would take a closer look at the specific email address you have been communicating with, because I don't believe this person actually represents Atlassian or the Atlassian Community in anyway. We have had other reports of this recently, such as in https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Team-managed-projects-questions/Is-this-your-company-s-real-email-address-info/qaq-p/2447711
In that case, the person was communicating with someone using a gmail.com email address. If that is the case with you, I suggest not interacting with whoever is on the other end of that email address.
We don't have a quick way to stop such a scam. However, if the email you received from them is from a gmail.com address, then it would help if you could report that email to Google Mail directly. There is a form over in https://support.google.com/mail/contact/abuse?hl=en that you could complete. If this messages comes from some other address, perhaps you could share with us some of the email header details so that we can try report this to proper mail host.
