Work at home scam

  • Monetary Loss: $0
An impostor who claims to work for a legitimate website in the Czech Republic (DATART) requests English translation via email for pay. I did some translation work, but when it was time to be paid, I was told I had to become a "representative" and transfer money via PayPal to someone else. Needless to say, I said no, and I was not paid for any work.

I was emailed and contacted by my phone number submitting a resume to what I thought was a real employer. These are the text messages as the email exchange was very believable and professional until I received the text messages.

  • Monetary Loss: $150
My brother and I was sent to a job in Orangevale, CA a little over a month ago and when we got to job we found out there was no work available I am complaining because is it a law that an employer has to pay a minimum 4 hours pay for at least since we showed up for work we were assigned from Peoplestaff Pay was suppose to be $11.00 per hour and I told Peoplestaff thet had to pat us by law and manager Jack Hill said he talk with his manager but never heard back and i wasted a lot of gas and told them they needed to reimburse for gas too and I never received any money for gas either. Now I am Recieving emails from Jack Hill again for work in Orangevale again but responded to him I was not going to accept job until I and my brother are paid from last time we went out there. We drove round trip from Valley Springs, California to Orangevale, California

I was offered a job from Morgan Stanley work from home program. Ellen Told me to get on the app so we can communicate. No problem what’s the home programs probably would do that. Somethings I was alarmed about. Inquire with that I had a bank account and what company did I have are from. No problem that one bother me because Morgan Stanley would ask that. Next time they will not I have a Credit card. My information back to them was this personal confidential information not respond to them. They fed asked me today to check we’re supposed to go to my bank and deposit. I love the clear next day take the money and buy a printer and laptop. This letter is coming from headquarters that I look online is not a company it is a form in the middle of nowhere in Wichita KS.Please can you look into this matter I’m not that stupid or naïve to give out a lot of my information so they didn’t get nothing from me but just want to dollars for a iTunes card.
