Paul Green is posing as a manager for Helix Energy and got in touch with me through internships.com website. I did not notice it was a scam until i sent my passport pic and utility bill. (thought it was needed for proof of residence because he said they were partnering with a British company. ) They asked for a money gram of $480USD for a british safety certificate.

My Names Ramon Garcia Jr I been scammed once before while looking for a job online before, Now I'm in a $2,600.00 debt. I take the fault. I'm paying the debt til this day.

Anyways I recently posted a listing on doing some side jobs online and have been going through a similar case as my previous one but I'm not complying with the scammers this time as I have put the check to the side. I just want someone to hold responsible for my depts. At the the time of my first scam I was an a urge of a job due to me having to support my family. So when they scammed me its as if they kicked me while I was low. I got both my car titles at our local moneyman loaning office. So if there's any kind of help for these situations out there it would mean a lot to me if someone would contact me for someone is currently attempting to scam me right now (01/25/2016).

"A LEADING company in Houston, TX has immediate openings for warehouse forklift personnel for a Distribution center. Great pay, benefits and all three shifts available !!! Forklift- skilled or unskilled welcome/ willing to train and certify IF NEEDED....Call for more info."
What they don't tell you, you must be certified through them {even if already certified) and that dubious honor will cost you $80. So why the if needed, as if you have a choice?
