I received a text message from an individual named James Harrison about a job opportunity. He stated he found my application on Crelate, which is an actual recruiting website. He told me to get ahold of an individual names Russ Harris via a Telegraph Messaging system, which I thought was weird but I did it anyway. I got ahold of Russ via telegraph messaging app and I stated I could set up an interview next week. He proceeded to do the interview via the messaging app, disregarding my request for a video interview. This was on Friday, he told me his team would like at my answers and I was to contact him by Monday my time. Once I contacted him, he stated I had the job. He started to brief me on the job, how to get the equipment, etc. The briefing stated, I would receive the check, deposit it into my account, I would then have to contact the vendor they use and order my own supplies. Once I received all my equipment, I would then meet my new supervisor (no name was given; stated he did not know who it was just yet because of my location) and he would have the new hire paperwork to sign. The home equipment consisted of laptop, scanner, fax machine, printer, phone, software, this is all before I even signed official new hire paperwork. I agreed, he stated the check would be mailed over night and I was to contact him the next day at 0900est to check in to see if I received the check or not. I stated I had not and that the tracking information he provided notified me the check would not arrive until 1200. By this time, I felt extremely off, uneasy even. I looked him and the company up on Linkedin. He has one, the company is legit but it was weird to me that he was entrusting me with company funds before I signed paperwork. By this time, he was nagging me to go check to see if the check arrived yet. By then, I was really skeptical of this, why was he pushing so much for me to get the check into the bank. I asked him if he could send me a copy of the official new hire paperwork on company letterhead via email and he refused. He started to make me feel guilty for questioning him. I told him I didn't feel comfortable putting company funds into my bank account without an official company letterhead sent to me. He didn't do that, he continue to make me feel guilty. Once I told him I was no longer accepting the job, he told me how much time and effort he put into talking with me via the messaging app. He told me to shred the check and he DELETED all of our conversation over the messaging app instantly. Be careful! Just because someone is real doesn't mean someone else isn't using their identity to scam people.
