    Default Possible Scam? Any thoughts?

    Hey you guys. So back in July/ August i was on sexyjobs and found an ad for a company that was up and coming. I submitted my paperwork, W-9, copy of id and ssi, signed documents that had (work limit clause i.e. For an x amount of time after quitting you cant work for other companies similar to theirs). We was communicating and everything & at the time nothing seemed suspicious and there was others girls that was hired as well (was tagged in the email). However I quit before the company ever officially opened due to helath issues.

    However I was reading posts on here warning about scammers and how some people will pull elaborate scams to make it seem legit, so they can steal your info and commit identity theft. So now that has me scared. I checked on the company website and there has been no activity, I dont think it ever launched. I tried contacting her but the number is not working now. Should I be worried? I have shitty credit so i doubt they open anything. But how can one check to see if a credit card or other things have been opened in your name?

    The company name was wildwetphonesexsluts.com . the owner name was Ashely.

    I just checked and the website is now suspended.

    Get a credit check and freeze your credit. As a weird side note, they can't restrict who else you work for without making you an employee, which entirely changes the way they would pay you.

    What should I look for on my credit check and how does one get a freeze on their credit? What does freezing my credit does? Sorry for all the questions.
