Brand Ambassador

Hi Pickies! So I got a dm from a brand saying they're looking for Brand Ambassador. It was my first time so I don't know what should I say and do. Also, if it's legit or not. They have official ig page but he's chatting me on other account. I was kinda scared. How can I deal with it? also can you give me some tips about this and what precaution should I take? Sharing your experience also are appreciated. Tysm for answering!

if he’s chatting from another account, most likely a scam. if they were honestly interested, they’d contact you from their main and official instagram.

yes, it's so irrational to contact with another account.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions! Ask why they are not contacting you from official brand’s page and all details about what’s expected if you accept the offer. There’s nothing wrong with asking. The worst case scenario, they won’t answer you🤣 then most likely they aren’t legit! In a mean time, also check their official page, website, Facebook, whatever you can find. Don’t ever provide your payment information and if something feels sketchy better don’t accept!

From my experience, those that are genuine brand wanting to work with you will either contact you via your public email, through your DM from their official IG, or through a third party PR company never through a sketchy second account that has nothing posted or just recently opened account. They always want it official.

Best to do a "background check" for you to avoid falling into scams. If they ask you to pay for shipping fee, it's most likely a scam

They won't send any products. They simply got your 20-30usd 😁
