Victim Location 60652
Type of a scam Employment

I applied for an advertised job on an internet job board for an Administrative Data Entry position with a company called Appen. I was contacted via the email I provided for an interview. The interview was done via google hangouts chat only. The person went over the position and the requirements. I was offered the position. I was told that the company will pay for all start up expenses which included a new macbook computer, software, audio equipment etc.

I was asked how I would like to receive my paycheck and was if I wanted direct deposit. I declined. At that time, the person, using the name Samuel Parker, informed me that he will have his Accounting Department mail out a check that day with a tracking number. The next day I did receive a check from the person for $3,860.00. This confirmed the red flags and the vibes The check was from "Dollar General Literacy Foundation" and the bank 53rd bank. Enclosed was a letter that began with "Good day" and with instructions on contacting [email protected] or to text (979) 320- 0441 for authorization. At this point, Samuel asked how long will it take to make to my bank. Also, he provided instructions to deposit the check via ATM and not inside. After the deposit, I was instructed to scan a copy of the deposit slip. I was wise not to even bother. The check arrived via fedex from an address: Gerad Cosmetic 2600 5th st, Davis, Ca 95618. Shipped from Virginia. The check is from Dollar General is Goodlettsville, Tn. None of the correspondence seemed professional and I never disclosed my information. I asked myself, what legitimate company will send a check without even verifying a person's identity.
