Type of a scam Employment

Contacted by Angela @ Gilly Payroll for a Virtual Administrative Assistant position. I was asked to perform research for a presentation and then asked to register for an October conference, using those funds and withdrawing money from my personal account. A Cashier's check was sent with Delaware information and when I informed 'client', I would wait 3 business days to ensure funds cleared properly, all communication ceased. It is unfortunate that individuals try to take advantage of experienced 'virtual assistant' professionals that rely on an income to feed their families - Shame on them.

A woman named Angela Becca hired me as a virtual assistant. Had me do a little work, then asked me to register her for a conference, before- radio silence. Suddenly she shows up again, says she’s sent me a check, and will send personal info for registering for the conference. Once I confirmed I had deposited the check, she changed the story, saying she needs me to withdraw 1000 in cash and use it to buy gift cards in $100 increments, as the position in the conference had been sold out. This seemed wrong to me- why gift cards, and why I’m cash?- so I looked it up, and sure enough, a story exactly like mine showed up with a sadder ending. I didn’t plan on losing my money, so I immediately cut off contact and called my bank to inform them of the impending bouncing check. A closer examination of this check showed that “void” had been printed, very faintly, in ink that nearly matched the check. Very smart. Don’t fall for this scam! It’s very underhanded and works on you in the moment. I never fall for these things, and it almost got me.

I was recently looking for "Virtual Assistant" positions as a part-time job. I added my resume to and shortly after, Angela Becca contacted me. She said she was the Business Development and Hiring Officer for Gilly Payroll, a company based out of New York. She asked for me to resend my resume and to answer a few interview-type questions via email. I did so, and shortly after she let me know that I had gotten the job. The agree payment was for $345/week for up to 20 hours per week. During my first week, she asked me to complete a write-up on the benefits of small businesses for a conference she would be speaking at. I did so, and even included visuals and a PowerPoint presentation. She responded shortly after receiving the assignment and thanked me for such a thorough job. She said the speech went great and that was all she needed me to do that week. The second week, Angela Becca made me aware that she would be attending the NAEM Conference and that she would need for me to handle her registration for the event. The individual registration for the event totaled $1,095. I was a bit weary that this seemed like a scam, so I checked out the conference and everything she told me matched the information about the conference. She let me know she would be sending a certified check via USPS for a total of $1,985 to cover the conference registration and my wages for the two weeks I had been working. The check took about a week to arrive. She provided me with a tracking number. Once the check arrived, I deposited it at the ATM at my bank and half of the check was automatically approved, while the other half was held by the bank for 48 hours. I made Angela aware that the bank put a hold on the check. Immediately after, she said the plans had changed because the ticket she needed for the conference was sold out. She said that she had worked out a way around the ticket with the individuals running the conference and that they were going to allow her to submit $1,000 in Amazon gift cards to pay for the ticket instead. She said they would be using the gift cards as door prizes. I immediately took the $1,000 cash out of my bank's ATM and went to Walgreens to purchase the gift cards. Walgreens has a $500 gift card limit, so I ended up having to go to two different locations to purchase the gift cards. Once I purchased them and let Angela know, she requested that I scratch off the code on the back and send her a picture of the claim code and each receipt with the cards. I did so, and shortly after received a call from my bank letting me know that the original check I deposited from her had bounced. Since I had already taken the cash out to pay for the gift cards, this left a huge negative balance in my account. I immediately called Amazon and gave them every single claim code and filed a fraudulent report letting them know the situation. After calling Amazon, I filed a police report with local law enforcement for a fraudulent work scam. Meanwhile, Angela Becca was emailing me continuously asking me to "hold on" and that she was "working with her bank on the issue." I emailed her letting her know that I had put a hold on all of the Amazon cards and that I had reported her and Gilly Payroll to law enforcement. I did not receive anymore emails or communication from Angela at that point. Amazon was only able to recover $700 worth of the gift cards, and they were only able to refund me in Amazon credit due to the purchase having been strictly on gift cards. So, now I owe the bank $1,000 and I didn't receive payment for the two weeks worth of fake work I did for this woman. Considering I am a student and barely make ends meat as it is, this situation has put me and my family in a financial hardship that I am afraid I will be unable to pull myself out of. Please keep this individual from doing to others what they did to me.

Type of a scam Employment

I applied to a job posting as a virtual assistant to, Angela Becca, at Gilly Payroll and a few days later received an email asking me to answer a few questions about my employment: like what hours I could work, what skills I possess, and why I think I would do well in this position. I received an email back stating I got the job. No interview. No contracts to sign. No W-4, W-2, or I-9 forms.

The next week I received a money order in the mail and they said that part of it was my paycheck and the other part was to be used to pay her registration fees for a conference next month. After I deposited the check, she said plans had changed and wanted me to buy a bunch of Amazon gift cards and wire the rest of the money to someone in TX. It has been 3 days since I deposited the money order into my account and so far it has cleared but I know it could take weeks until the bank catches it. I confronted my boss and told her I was concerned and asked her to answer some questions about the gift cards, wire transfer, and why I did not have to fill out any paperwork when I was hired. She got very offended, told me I was asking "silly questions", and threatened me.
