I was trying to apply for a stay at home job. the interview was on google hangouts. Looked legit at first but the after the questions were done the communication just fell off. seemed very unprofessional. Husband looked it up and said it was a scam. I had emailed my resume and proof of address. Now I keep getting these emails about what I am supposed to do next. Today 06/16 I received a check in the mail of over $4000. I think it is an individual..Looks extremely shady. I have spoken to no one but they send me a large check to start buying my home equipment.

I was in the process of job hunting on indeed.com and came across a customer service position from home. The job entailed reviving packages, searching for damage and reshipping them. I was hired immediately and sent a contract.....the address is ‭the same as Fed Ex. Upon doing research I called the Fed Ex location and such a business called Gecert doesn’t exist.

False Job Postings on Indeed

I applied for what i thought was a good paying job, they wanted nothing more than to try to compromise my bank account by sending a fake check and then trying to have me deposit it. I remembered having an encounter like this about 10 years back, (real bank accounts don’t have P.O. Boxes) so that’s a dead giveaway that it was fake , i was speaking with my so called employer and after i had told Him/Her that i had called the bank of which the check came from and there were no funds in the account, i haven’t gotten a single text message or email. That’s a long story short.

I was offered a job by a joshua Carr. He sent me a check to purchase gift cards for computer equipment. Since, the check has been returned and I’m out of the money. The gift cards were sent over to him to make the purchases. I did not realize it was a scam until I called the company Growmark fs in Illinois.
