Type of a scam Employment
I was contacted by email after applying for jobs by a person claiming to be from Wesfarmers Limited. Her alias was Kristen D. Lareau. She told me that I was the perfect candidate for the internet based job. I was instructed to contact her through Google Hangouts and my "interview" was conducted there. I was asked about 15 questions, after I was finished, I was told to wait a few minutes while "the supervisor" went over my responses. About 6 minutes later, I was told I got the job. Another email was sent to me, this time directly from the "Kristen" person. It stated the job duties, the two week training pay of $19/hour and $34/hour after completion of training. Most of the communication was through Google Hangouts. I was told that I would be sent a check for the equipment needed to do the job. I was to deposit the check in my personal bank account and order the computers, printer, software, and office supplies from a vendor that they claim to use. The remainder of the money was for my "training pay". They give tasks to make you think you're actually doing something but I questioned the first task. I was instructed to email them the 15 customer service skills ever employee needs. About two minutes into it I realized that something wasn't right so I researched deeper into the real Wesfarmers Limited and emailed them. It is indeed a scam. I only wish that I dug deeper initially because I was tricked into giving them my social security number.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
They emailed me about a job. They said they would be sending me a check to purchase office supplies for work. Then they asked me to send $280 to buy a time tracker. They asked me to go to a store with moneygram to send it to the company to purchase it straight from there so they could send it overnight.
