I have submitted many Resumes on line, while looking for a job locally. Of course, since Everything is online now these fakes call all the time. This woman says her name is Mary Ellen and that she works for Kelly Services. She called and left a voice message about a local job opportunity for a machine operator for a Johnson and Johnson company in Horseheads, NY. I called her back several times on Monday 5/9/2016 left my name and phone number and the job she had called me about and when she called me back she didn't have a CLUE who she was talking to or why !!!!!!! Then as I became more frustrated because she was supposed to be helping me and she sounded Extremely Clueless she told me that she held some kind of Dr's . Degree!!!! Wtf !!!! It was obviously some phone scam promising a bullshit lead to a job. :-(

I have been scammed by [email protected]

I got a text saying someone needed a personal assistant. Thought it was real because I have put in applications to do so. They said I was accepted without given a resume. They asked for my address. ALL THROUGH EMAIL. They then later sent me a check for 2984.00 , They wanted me to deposit it take out 10% then send the rest of the cash in an envelope in the mail. I got the check sent to my address on friday it is not the next weeks wednesday. They keep texting me saying if I do not deposit money and send a bank receipt they will call the FBI on me. I have asked them multiple times to call me and send my proper documentation that this is a legitimate company. But they always ignore this request. I have yet to do anything with the check. All I have done so far is ignored emails and texts.. I still have the package it was sent in and the check, which I have not yet signed.

Healtheast data entry work from home scam

  • Monetary Loss: $1
They sent me an email saying they want to make an interview for a job application which i was sending a lot so I didn't know if it was a job that i actually applied to. I talked to Julie harrison on google hangouts and she offered me a job as a data entry work from home giving 31$ an hour with my own flexible hours and the next day they sent me job offer and said they will send me a check the next day to buy some software and office equipment.
They told me to deposit the check and send the deposit receipt , i opened a new account and deposited the check so the money wasn't going to be available until next week. When i told her that she asked if i could pay the money and get reimbursed with the check which was for 2976 $ i told her I didn't have that kind of money and ill wait till next week to receive the deposit.
After a few days the bank closed my account and told me it was because i deposited a counterfeit check.
Beware of these scammers and dont pay them any money and don't deposit their check into your account.
It was too good to be true.

I received an employment opportunity work from home position, from one Jessica Mendosa. Saying they got my info off CareerBuilder. My position included receiving and shipping parcels. Combining certain packages and so on. Everything was normal until I started questioning about the company itself as I could not find any info on it at all. Then I was told they would have a website up as of May 19th 2016. I then started questioning my pay, asking about statements for tax purposes as I had dumbly chosen to have my pay directly deposited. Then all the emails stopped. I could not get her to respond at all. Then I just so happened to stumble across this website and found someone else that had been scammed by the same person. I now have to shut down all my accounts and start over.
