Promise of employment and theft of funds

  • Mar 13, 2016
  • Monetary Loss: $3000
This matter involves the theft of my funds in the amount of $2,964.67 plus bank fees from multiple parties, including, but not limited to: Fiona Maclean, rlathamwatkina09, representing to be with SunGard Financial Systems / FIS and /or Financial Systems Company); Erica Gonzalez, representing to be with SunGard Financial Systems / FIS and /or Financial Systems Company); SunGard Financial Systems / Company, LawJobs, Google Hangouts, Gmail, MoneyGram, Citinbank Delaware, Security Service Federal Credit Union, and Bank of America. On or about 02/10/16 I was contacted by Ms. Maclean, claiming that my "resume posted on Lawjobs had been reviewed by the Hiring Dept of SunGard Financial Systems. [email protected] , representing herself to be associated with SunGard. Said check was issued to me by ThyssenKrupp, from Citibank Delaware for contract legal services, and forwarded to me via FedEx by I was to provide to them through Sanforwarded to me via FedEx and received on 02/12/16. Prior to depositing said check, I contacted Citibank Delaware to verify is validity and was told it WAS a valid check written on a valid account. Based on their assertion and assurance, I deposited the check into my account that same day, 02/12/16. By 02/15/16 I accepted a full-time position with a local law firm and notified Ms. Gonzalez & Ms. Maclean that I no longer wished to perform any work for their client and requested instructions to return their remaining funds. On 02/17/16, AFTER being explicitly informed by my bank that the check had cleared and the funds were available, I withdrew the remaining funds ($1,9957.67) in cash and deposited it into Bank of America account No. 237015771618, account holder name JEMIMA SAWARI on the same day, 02/17/16. Unfortunately and quite surprisingly, less than two (2) days later, 02/19/16, 19, Bank notified me that ThyssenKrupp/Citibank Delaware's check had been returned UNPAID. Consequently, not only did the Bank debit that amount from in the sum of $2,964.00, they further withdrew NSF fees which left my account with a negative balance, and which only multiplied each time an auto-draft has been presented to my Bank. My near-daily communication to the parties involved has been fruitless as I STILL NOT HAVE MY MONEY, and NO ONE has responded to my inquiries.

Check Fraud/Money Laundering

  • Monetary Loss: $1,836
I was involved in a work from home job scam, using the company Plexus Worldwide. I was sent checks through the mail and was advised to deposit them via Terry Stewart (my boss). The check cleared and then bounced and now my bank is holding me reliable for the funds even though I have the account and routing number as well as the person's name that I deposited the funds into. My bank is still removing money from my account and they have no explanation for it.

Wire money issue

  • Monetary Loss: $0
I was to have money wired into my account from a sale of stocks in a company based in South Africa. They showed me the money in an email account and said I need to wire them about 4000 dollars US to complete the transaction. My bank says that I shouldn't have to pay anything and they should take it out of the principle and not to send and money to them. I contacted the FBI and they told me to contact you. I don't know if this is a crime for sure but figured I should let someone know just incase.

Unautorized use of debit card

  • by: anniebelle

  • Mar 22, 2016
  • Monetary Loss: $300
They called to refund a charge on my card. I never gave them my card number. Then they told me I would be getting a 6 digit code on my cell phone. This happened 3 times. Then 2 days later 300.00 was taken out of my bank. I have disputed this claim at the bank. Now all they do is call about every half hour wanting my bank numbers and debit card numbers. I just talked to a lady at Teamviewer and she said nobody works there by those names. Then she told me it was a scam. So I'm reporting it.
