Victim Location 27284
Type of a scam Employment
A job was posted on the Washington post for a data entry position. It was advertised as work from home. All the emails sent and websites referenced and used belong to F5 Networks Incorporated, an internet security company.
This company prides themselves and has really made a name for themselves as a top notch highly rated security company that provides services to government agencies and large corporations.
I responded to the advertisement on August 28th and received and email from [email protected]_incorporated.com on September 1st advising me of the details of the company- that they are an equal opportunity employer, what the job description and pay were and advised me of the duties and expectations. That email to me to send and email to [email protected] and provide a verification code for my interview. I did that. On September 7th I received and email from [email protected] advising me of my interview on September 8th at 4PM
On September 8th I received and email saying he was behind but could I join him at google hangouts so we could do the interview. He told me to add [email protected] which I did. It was an hour long interview and all legitimate interview questions were asked of me. I received and email September 9th to advise me of my position and that they would contact me in 1-3 business days to send someone to my home to set up my office. Today a received and email from [email protected]_incorporated.com advising me that they had attached my contract and that they needed my W-4 and 1-9 form. Not only was the information attached on company letterhead but it was a complete contract and told me things like "because this is an exempt position you will not be eligible for overtime" and "upon severance..." and gave all severance package details should one occur. Lucky for me before this last email came asking me to photo copy my driver's license and list my prior address, etc I looked up Casey Martin on linkedin to thank him for my interview only to see, "No Data Entry Openings. Someone is using my account as part of an online scam." At that point I called F5 at 206-272-5555 and was advised it was indeed a scam.
Here is where F5 is negligent. First of all there is NOTHING on their company website about this incident which I find disgraceful. Second, when I called them they told me it was a scam and they would transfer me to the person handling it, then they disconnected me. Third they are an internet security company. This is what they do and there is no reason that by now they would not secure their system. I got the last email as I was typing this and all this started at 9am today it is 11:30. Why is this man's Linkedin page the only thing updated about this scam? Hiding it is not the way to handle it there are people out there right now giving scammers their address AND schedule, copies of their driver's license and birth certificates ! This is bad and needs to be handled ASAP.
