JA: I'll do all I can to help. Can you tell me more about what's going on?
Customer: Someone named Alex saying he was with doordash texted me today asking why I haven’t downloaded app to start delivering, I answered text. I was wondering if someone trying to scam me because I read online door dash doesn’t reach out by phone
JA: Is there anything else the Expert should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: I told person who texted me I couldn’t down load app because I didn’t have iOS 14 downloaded he asked me why I told him my phone was old, he asked when I planned getting a new phone, I said I didn’t know. He said to let him know if I ever needed any help with anything

There are many scams which try to get you to believe thay are lrgitimate., but they not, and are really just fraudsters.

If you did not initiate any contact with this purported "Alex" I would assume this is afraud, and delete it and have no further communication.

This has all the red flags of a scam. If it were me, I would not respond.

Hello. I have a Door Dash account that I haven't used yet. I never downloaded the app to start dashing because my phone doesn't have the iOS 14 someone texted me today claiming to be from Door Dash asking why I haven't been making deliveries I told him why and I was just worried someone was trying to get my information, I never set up my bank information but I was worried about my driving license information

I did respond but I changed my password ***** because I got to thinking Door Dash does not probably reach out like that

Under these circumstances, itmay be legitimate, or it may not be.  Fraudsters can be very sophisticated and convincing.  The safest course of action is if there is any doubt whatsoever, and if it were me I would think there is, to delete it and ignore it.

Your changing your password ***** a very wise move.  Give yourself a pat on the back for that.

Bot***** *****ne:  If it were me, I would certainly delete this and not give any  information whatsoever or respond in any way. If you do, I would not be surprised if your identity is stolen or you otherwise become the victim of fraud.

If there is nothing else now, I wish you the very best. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to post a new separate question to Just Answer for me, Aaron Esq., only. Just Answer does not charge extra for that. I usually do Just Answer only on weekends and sometimes briefly late at night, because I have a full time in office job.
