I was called and offered a supervisor(logistics position) in the Begining of March, and I needed to sent address verification information, and sign via email the contract they forwarded to me. And for this position I would get 2,550 and 25 for bonuses on early deliveries. Today April fist 2016 pay day for me but since 8:pm Friday I have called 10 phone #s with no replies. I feel that I been had. I had created a bank account to have direct deposit made, with only $50.00 in account, so they won't rip-off much. They have copy of my license and light bill.

Hello Brett and hope your weekend is going well for you? I have been extremely busy pardon for not getting back in touch on time. I forwarded your details to the financial manager and your check will get to your address tomorrow depending on the mail time to your address. Just deposit it at your bank when you have it and email me after you must have deposited it so the financier can process the clearance in 12 hrs. Once the money is available I will issue out instruction on you getting your first week pay $500, including $50 expenses and arrangements for the balance to be sent to mover agency for payment and cost of the furniture and car will be duly sent to you via email so you know where to send the movers payment to and get back with receipt so they can fix a date with you on when the furniture and car will arrive and where to meet up with you. The keys will be sent after payment is made to the mover agency so you can be contacted and prepare for receiving the car and furniture.


Regards,
Andres Zamora

Offering fake jobs to get to your bank account

I posted a job on Craig'slist saying that I needed odd jobs for the summer while I am on vacation from school. All the above contacted me and are still contacting me. What they do is say that they are out of town and need a personal assistant to run errands for them. They then send you to a website such as Squareup.com so that you can give them your bank account information so that they supposedly can send you a starting compensation. I did not give them my bank account information so no money was taken from me, but the text messages I get are unrelenting.

Attempted Scam

Received an email from [email protected] on April 5, 2016. Said he found my resume on Career Builder and wanted me to apply for a shipping clerk position. First thing that caught my attention is that he did not mention the name of the company, and he wanted me to send my resume and cover letter to him. He told me the hours were from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and I could earn $2,500 a week... and the qualifications or so simple, that also caught my attention. This would look like a perfect job for the person that did not know what was going on. I went ahead and googled GMX, and that is when I ran across this website where I could report scams. I found the exact name, Alex Winston, reported by someone else, telling me that he had received the same exact email that I just received. Please do not fall for these types of email scams. They prey on people who are searching for jobs, and sometimes when someone is so desperate to get a job, he can get caught up in something that is terrible.
