Scam using a fake website to re-direct to real company in Denmark
Apr 26, 2016
Monetary Loss: $0
A gentleman named Lars Yohannsen in "Denmark" contacted me to offer me an international job as vacation supervisor and the requirement is that I handle all the financial, logistic (hotel reservation, complaints...) planning out of the US for his clients and promise to pay $3,000/month salary for my services + 5% comm for all financial transactions. I received a check (almost $2,500) from a "client" in CA and I was asked to deposit it and keep 5% comm before sending the remaining $ via money gram to someone that "works" at Borealis in Poland. The scam would be completed when the bank would call me after a few days (or weeks) telling me that the check is invalid or bogus and I need to pay back the whole amount deposited (+ fees). Meanwhile, the scammers would have received my $2,300+ via moneygram and disappear. I caught the scam on time. This gentleman even uses a +45 area code when he calls and sends you a full 7 pages employment agreement from the company Borealis with actual logo, address...which makes it look even more "legit". Beware!
They are asking me to print checks and mail them out to their "customers" and "workers." They want me to be the one to print the checks and mail them through ups with an account and signature I will be putting on the check with the name and total amount I will be putting on the check.
This person keeps on posting jobs on facebook. He/She deceives people by telling them He/She is offering jobs in USA, asking applicants to pass CV then later on pay a certain amount for labor fee of $285. They already deceived lots of people.

May 3, 2016
Monetary Loss: $0
A person impersonating Michael Stern texted me saying that there my resume had been reviewed and that I was accepted for an interview. Then, they connected me with someone impersonating Alex Silverman. That person got my mailing address and told me he was going to mail me some company materials such as a laptop and that he was going to mail me a check so that I could use it to purchase items that I would need to have this at-home position. After contacting the real Alex Silverman, I discovered that this is a scam that has been going around for a while now and that they are trying to catch this person.
