Direct deposit before interview scam

The applicant is offered the job via email and told that all employees are paid via Direct Deposit with the company's banking institution with no additional cost for you. The applicant is sent to a website to sign up and told: "After registering your Direct Deposit confirmation, please respond back to this email with your ideal interview date/time. Remember, you need your Direct Deposit account info before your interview, as we will be processing your payment information at that time."
