Quickly reading through that article, and presuming it was a copy/paste of the actual email/text, there were dead give away syntax/grammar errors that should immediately throw up red flags.

The direct deposit comment, "...you will receive this form in person... it will never be requested in advance via email." Not necessarily true. While it's good to be cautious and skeptical, I have set-up direct deposit with companies on-line and via email. It's not unheard of or unusual for a large legit company. I've even done it with very, very small companies(one to two people)
