Job Scam

Someone texted me on Telegram and ask if i was interested in a job, felt sketchy but said I was interested. Pushed my number to someone named “peggy sim” probably a fake alias on WhatsApp. Peggy told me company was “Rakuten Asia” and told me to sign up with a website called bestrakuten.

After signing up, I saw that there was an option to top up the account and I knew it was a scam
