Type of a scam Employment
The company called Odyssey Capital Group, claims to be world wide and wanted to start a branch in Minnesota. They did a strange interview with me through Google Hangouts. They sent me a check even thought I didn't fill out paperwork confirming that I was hired by them.
They sent the check in order for me to purchase a laptop, printer, and software for their company. They wanted me to deposit the check into my personal bank account and send proof that it was deposited.
I contacted the police when I saw the check and they informed me to destroy the check and block the email, hangout, and phone number. Now I'm informing you to let others know.

Type of a scam Employment
I received an unsolicited email from someone who claimed to work for the Odyssey Capital Group stating my resume was approved for a job opening. It asked for me to contact a Jatin Haryani through either Skype of Google Hangouts for a job interview and they provided a verification code, which by the way was never requested. I set up an interview through Hangouts and the interview commenced immediately. Took about an hour and they came back within about 5 minutes that the human resources department approved my interview and I was hired!
They told me they would send me a check for home office equipment to include a laptop, printer, and software from an approved vendor. Next day I received the check and they asked me to deposit it and once I did to let them know when the funds are available and they would then give me further instructions. I started to get suspicious as it was a very large amount. I started looking at the email addresses that they were communicating from and they were huge red flags.
My offer letter came from a gmail account and the email domain from the person I was communicating with during the entire interview process had a flaw. The dash in their domain was in the wrong location. Correct domain: @odysseycapital-group.com Interviewer domain: @odyssey-capitalgroup.com I looked up the companies personnel list and a Jatin Haryani but I'm pretty sure I wasn't communicating with him. When I notified "Jatin" I was not going to deposit the check he got very pushy with me stating that the company already funded the check and I had to cash it. That I had nothing to worry about. That there was also a sign on bonus in there for me, which was never even discussed to begin with.
Once I told them again I would not be depositing the check he left the chat. The email used in Hangouts was [email protected] The email address from original email where they reached out to me was [email protected] and [email protected] The email that I received the Offer Letter from was [email protected]
