How will my job charge me for an item I couldn't return?

So I've been working for this job and had a 2 day training and today was my first day out on my own giving people free phones if they were eligible. I didn't feel comfortable to begin with doing this job and I finally quit. I returned to my job and nobody was to be found at the office and the door was locked . So I called the boss no answer, called a coworker he told me to meet up with another coworker and he wasn't even at the location so I told him and he gave me his number and the phone rang twice and ended. So I told him about it and that I was leaving and going to return the phones and tablet on monday since nobody will be there tomorrow. I have the phones in my backpack and a tablet and I was told if the tablet was lost or broke I would be charged 750 dollars for it. How would they charge me if they dont even have my bank information just my social security number and ID number but they never took copies of it . Should I keep it or would they somehow be able to take my money with my given information???

    Whatever it is, you are the target. This is some sort of a scam. You might go to the cops and ask them.

    you need to send a text to your superior letting her/him know that you are a quitter and will be returning their property ASAP

    You're sure having a lot of problems with this job, aren't you? How can your job charge you? If you filled out a job application, then they have your address and phone number. If your paychecks are direct deposited, they also have your bank information. Don't you worry, they'll find a way.

    If you keep it that would be fraud and they could sue you in small claims court. And there's a potential for criminal charges.

    If it's lost, stolen or broken, that could be a bit tricky. Normally they can't sue you for that type of thing. Example, if your driving the company car you don't become responsible for repairs. But this sounds like a questionable company, so they probably had you sign something that says your responsible.

    I'm going to guess that a judge will rule that they can't charge you, because they're contract is illegal. But I'm really guessing here

    It would be up to them to take you to court. And even in small claims court they'd have to pay someone's wage to be there. So if it's accidentally broken, they probably won't bother. If they think you stole it, I'm sure they will sue you.

    they will not charge you, you will arrested by the police since that's a theft.
