Luke Orchard became a friend on Facebook on Jan 7, 2016. He claimed to be from UK and traveled to Malaysia to claim his late father money in the amount of 3.5 million US. He asked money from me to help him clear the check and it was sent to Mohd Abu account in Public Bank and never heard afterwards. He promised to pay once he cashed the check.

VOIP AND CHASE ARE GUILTY
Apr 10, 2016
Monetary Loss: $147.50
I received a text from Chase bank that a $39.75 check had just cleared and I was overdrafted. I inquired, seems that VOIP created an account for me, (without my knowledge) submitted a POS transaction and took $ 39.75 out of my account. I did not realize that they also did it a month before as well. I noticed this one because it made me overdrawn. I opened a claim through Chase on these fraudulent charges and they sent me a letter in return, you approved these transactions so we are not crediting back your money. I called Voip and they stated "you requested these services through your email", I was furious. Anyway...had to close my account with Chase.
They are doing check fraud; I'm selling items on wallopop and the same story I have read. They ask you for your email and request item to be removed; then they add an additional $50 or $100 all of a sudden for mover; secretary, etc....
I'm waiting for the check or response and once I receive I will post all their information so they can catch these crooks.
Recruiter reached out said they found my information on a job board. Work from home A/R department. They individual had contracts from LiuGong Machinery, whether they were legit or not I don't know. They mailed me two checks with a women's name on from West Virginia. They were well over 2k in totals.
I just received a 2-day priority mail envelope inside was a check for $993.00 and a letter asking me to go to walmart and send them $753.00 and keep the remainder for my commission I checked online first thing to check for scams because I have a few friends that have received similar offers. If it seems to good to be true it usually is.
