He did not say his name, there was no hello, He started out with "According to our records it says that you're in need of employment. .." Then he said I qualify for a deal that can further my education, and all he needed was some information. Luckily I caught on and hung up but I still want to report them.

I never applied for this company and I felt like it was fishy. I looked into it further and found out about wiring scams.
While looking for a job, I ran across an ad on Craigslist. They said it was no out of pocket expense to work for them. Said the job was email verification for large companies. Then it said I had to have a backup program to make sure the companies information was protected. It said I would have to pay 25.00, but would get that credited to my account instantly. Then I had to pay another 7.00 to upgrade the backup program. said the lowest paying job was 5.00 and would take no longer than 30min per job. When I completed everything, it ended up taking me to a site where I had to click on ads. Most of them I had to pay something, the ones I didn't pay for were only .30 each job and would take you through multiple web pages before you could complete it. Also, the 25.00 I would instantly get back, was to small of a payment. So I would have to earn another 25.00 in order to get the 25.00 back. In the end it cost me $39 and some change. It was nothing but a scam to get me to buy a program from mypcbackup.com and I didn't even need it to click on the ads in the first place.
I posted my resume on Indeed.com, shortly after I received an e-mail from someone claiming to be a career agent from Celgene Pharmaceuticals, offering me a work from home customer service position. Everything appeared to be legitimate, so I accepted the offer. Within 3 days I was told a check would be sent to cover the cost of my work at home equipment. The following day after the interview I received an envelope containing a check payable to me for $2,968.46, with instruction on how I should deposit the check. The problem was the check did not come from Celgene, it was from a Realty group in California. I decided to call Celgene, and was advised not to cash the check, and that this is a scam that's been going on for a while. But the problem I have is why weren't job seekers informed about this.
This lady apparently needed a personal assistant to do certain job for her, and she told me my first assignment was to get her furniture but it was a scam and when I went to the bank they told me that the check was a fraud.
Ad was on indeed.com for a babysitter position supposedly paying $16/hr. "She" requested my resume which I sent to "her" e-mail. Upon receiving she e-mailed me stating the position was no longer available but that she would hire me as her "personal assistant " since she is out of town up in Toronto Canada she wanted me to purchase electronics and clothing and have them delivered to my address for her. And then something about she would mail the purchase funds to me for the items. All sounded real suspicious so I declined the "offer".
