Type of a scam Employment
I was first contacted on Feb 28, 2019 on LinkedIn by a lady named Amy. She said that they were impressed with my work experience and asked that email my resume for a job opportunity to [email protected] I did. Sunday night I received an email from [email protected] saying that they wanted to interview me via Google hanouts .
"This interview process is chat based online through Google Hangout. You're to contact the Senior Recruiter/ HR Coordinator Mrs Gina Nunley on Google Hangouts ( [email protected] ) to confirm and acknowledge the receipt of this email and to schedule your interview and confirm your availability.The Google Hangout email again for the interview is [email protected]"
The next morning I was contacted on Hangouts by Gina Nunley and the interview was set up for Tuesday at 1 pm. I thought it was going to be a video conference but instead it was all via text which took 2.5 hours of my time. They offered me the position to work as a graphic designer 10-30 hours a week for $40/hr and they would set up an office at my house. They said they would order the office supplies and ship them to my house and someone would come out and set it up for me to get started in training. Wednesday morning I was sent an official offer of employment via email and asked that I sign to accept the job and provide them with a copy of my driver's license. They did not ask anything about a social security number or bank information. I was then notified that they would be sending a check to me to deposit in my bank account so that I could pay for the office supplies. I found that odd. This morning I was contacted that the check was sent via FedEx to my house and arrived this morning. I checked the FedEx Tracking # and it was sent from Sacramento, California. Here is the FedEx Tracking #: 774629699010. I was already suspicious so I came home and opened the envelope and there was only this poorly printed check in there. Nothing else. It was written out to pay me for the amount of $6,784.37. The name and address on the check is Intertrust Realty Corp. 2609 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, FL 33140 and it is supposedly from Bank of America. I have not cashed the check. I am not going to attempt to deposit it. I have not responded to Gina again. I don't know what to do and I do not want to be in trouble for having this fake check. I have attached a photo of it along with a copy of the letter that I was emailed. I was told someone is delivering a computer and other office supplies to my house Monday, March 11, 2019 but honestly I am not sure if it is coming or not. I cannot pay for the supplies if they do come. And the original person who contacted me on LinkedIn, Amy, has deleted her profile page so I am unable to report her on LinkedIn, but I still have the messages. I'm not sure what else to do at the moment.
