Callier Business LLC is this a SCAM?

Hi,
My daughter received what I think is a scam email a few days after she had registered with an online employment agency.
The company is called CALLIER BUSINESS LLC and it purports to come form a ''HR person called Bonnie P. Buss HR Department , Callier Business LLC''
The Word document is a form to fill in and it asks for bank details credit card details. There was no interview - it looks like onece they get your card /bank details you will be charged for training, although the training is 'free'.
Just want people to be on their guard. I spoke to a few people about this, but there is no way to report possible scams like this which target young people. I would hate any young person to lose their money to scumbag scammers.
Has anyone had any dealings with these people?

I got the same message. There is a company based in USA with the name. I was told that the work will be home based. But havent filled the application. Still unsure since they asks for card details.

I think anything asking for card/bank details online is dodgy (paypal excepted).
LLC would suggest to me that they're in the US, rather than the UK.
What online agency did your daughter register with?
I would recommend not replying. If they are genuine, then they'll find another means of getting in touch.

Hi all, would just advise anyone who is not sure to report it online to www.actionfraud.police.uk/ who can build a picture and take action.
