Hello. Ok so I gave information to a packaging site that said theyd pay me 30000 a year. I was supposed to upload pictures to make sure they were in proper condition and then deliver them again. It turns out it was a scam and my credit has been compromised since I was told people opened credit card accounts using my info. I don't recall the exact information being used. I seriously doubt I gave my ssn though. However if I did what can I do to erase this? How possible is it to borrow a 4g loan In march 2019? I want to use it for a trip to Asia. For the record I've been an employee since July and started my second job a month ago after leaving the first one. Nonetheless what can I do to make it more feasible to borrow 4 g in 1.5 years?

Who told you?  You need to know for sure yourself, don't go by word of mouth.  Google the phone number for all 3 CRAs (TransUnion, Equifax & Experian).  Ask for free copies of all 3 reports to be sent by mail.  Once you get them, look for any accounts you do not recognize.

You also have the option to put a freeze on your credit.  You can do this on the phone at the same time you order your reports.  A freeze will prevent any new accounts from being opened if someone does, in fact, have your ID info. 

If you find accounts on your reports that are not yours, file a police report and call the bank that shows on your reports to report the account as ID theft.  Send a copy of the police report to the CRAs by mail with a letter indicating which account and that it was part of ID theft.
