Hi, a lot of the red flags are there; bad grammar, pay and benefits exceeding the job duties, etc.
Sorry that you applied, only to find out that they wanted to get you to disclose your banking info.
Glad that you saw through it, however.

Wishing you the best and be weary of offers that truly sound too good to be real,
