    Me :I'm assuming you will keep track of my hours?
    Aug 22 3:03 PM
    Me :Or that I'm reporting to you?
    Aug 22 3:04 PM
    divinesmith89:Yes I would and you would be reporting to me
    Aug 22 3:04 PM
    Me :Sounds good.
    Aug 22 3:04 PM
    Me :Is there any place I can go to learn more about the company itself?

    Me :Sounds good Divine
    Aug 22 3:06 PM
    Me :Do you need anything else from me right now?
    Aug 22 3:06 PM
    divinesmith89:No, that should be all for now




    So question: What are these people after? I'm assuming they want me to deposit the "certified check" in my account so they can get my account number or what not, and only being in contact online will leave a smaller footprint to track. Can't you just ask the bank to track the check you're depositing?

    S C A M !

    During Training,the company's Financier will send you funds in form of check which will be deposited ** you ,You are to take out 150$ for your signing fee and
    have the rest funds sent to the Shipper/Vendor in the States for the release of your mini office equipment.
    just tell them to send the funds to whoever is supposed to get the funds, eh? why would they send funds to you then make you send to somebody? because it is a fake check, that your bank will cash for you, because your bank trusts you. but, you are responsible to make the check good. you could be charged with fraud and arrested.

    Re: Smells like a scam - Niant Company

    100% scam.

    There is no job.

    There is only a scammer trying to steal your hard-earned money.

    The next email will be from another of the scammer's fake names and free email addresses pretending to be the "secretary/assistant/accountant" and will demand you cash a large fake check sent on a stolen UPS/FedEx billing account number and send most of the "money" via Western Union or moneygram back to the scammer posing as the "computer supply company" while you "keep" a small portion as your "paycheck". When your bank realizes the check is fake and it bounces, you get the real life job of paying back the bank for the bounced check fees and all the bank's money you sent to an overseas criminal.

    Western Union and moneygram do not verify anything on the form the sender fills out, not the name, not the street address, not the country, not even the gender of the receiver, it all means absolutely nothing. The clerk will not bother to check ID and will simply hand off your cash to whomever walks in the door with the MTCN# and question/answer. Neither company will tell the sender who picked up the cash, at what store location or even in what country your money walked out the door. Neither company has any kind of refund policy, money sent is money gone forever.

    When you refuse to send him your cash he will send increasingly nasty and rude emails trying to convince you to go through with his scam. The scammer could also create another fake name and email address like "FBI@ gmail.com", "police_person @hotmail.com" or "investigator @yahoo.com" and send emails telling you the job is legit and you must cash the fake check and send your money to the scammer or you will face legal action. Just ignore, delete and block those email addresses. Although, reading a scammer's attempt at impersonating a law enforcement official can be extremely funny.

    Now that you have responded to a scammer, you are on his 'potential sucker' list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of great jobs, lottery winnings, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell your email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram.

    Do you know how to check the header of a received email? If not, you could google for information. Being able to read the header to determine the geographic location an email originated from will help you weed out the most obvious scams and scammers. Then delete and block that scammer. Don't bother to tell him that you know he is a scammer, it isn't worth your effort. He has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their hard-earned cash.

    Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer.

    6 "Rules to follow" to avoid most fake jobs:
    1) Job asks you to use your personal bank account and/or open a new one.
    2) Job asks you to print/mail/cash a check or money order.
    3) Job asks you to use Western Union or moneygram in any capacity.
    4) Job asks you to accept packages and re-ship them on to anyone.
    5) Job asks you to pay visas, travel fees via Western Union or moneygram.
    6) Job asks you to sign up for a credit reporting or identity verification site.

    Avoiding all jobs that mention any of the above listed 'red flags' and you will miss nearly all fake jobs. Only scammers ask you to do any of the above. No. Exceptions. Ever. For any reason.

    If you google "fake check cashing job", "fraud Western Union scam", "money mule moneygram scam" or something similar you will find hundreds of posts from victims and near-victims of this type of scam.

    Re: Smells like a scam - Niant Company

    This is a SCAM! Went through the same process. When I asked "SMITH" why there were different company names being used ** the *****slist email address I got a reply of "we have business in various fields." When I said I would in no way handle any money transfer etc, nor would I give out my personal banking information and would only receive payments ** Paypal she said that would be impossible because how am I to get my office tools if I don't forward the money to the appropriate vendor. I said I didn't need office tools have everything. She said that I had to use their approved equipment. So me being me, I said I had the exact same equipment they use, she said well if I don't want it I could just get it and give it away as gifts. LOL! I really had fun with this nut job. Kept them on for about an hour just being mischevious and then I let them have it. Report them to *****slist! So sick of these scammers trying to take us Americans for a ride.

    danfos15: If you will pardon me, it seems odd that the company would send a cashiers check for $2880 to someone only met via internet chat, rather than just sending the equipment needed to me. Is this some sort of scam? Please excuse me for asking but internet safety is a priority.

    danfos15: It should be above in this conversation window. It seems odd that a comany would send a cashier's check for $2880 to an applicant with whom they have never met, rather than sending the actual package of tools/hardware/software itself. Something seems off with this.

    Re: Smells like a scam - Niant Company

    I have yet to receive any additional messages from Ms Kim Dixon, probably a fake name, regarding my questions and concerns. Definitely a scam. I just am amazed that folks are getting away with this stuff. I am just looking for a job to supplement my family's income.

    OMG!!! I went through the same fake yahoo msgr abt 10 mins ago with a "Ms Kim Dixon". I knew it was fake and a scam when they said they were sending out money, but I played along with it. I means seriously, who interviews via msgr?? Completely ridulous!!

    My conversation with this person did not go any further than
    danfos15: Hello Ms Dixon. I recently received an email in response to a job opportunity I applied for from *****slist. I was instructed to message you for the job details. My name is Danielle Foster.
    Kim Dixon: How are you doing today ?
    danfos15: Oh, I am hanging in there I guess. Thanks for asking. How about you?
    Kim Dixon: Good
    Kim Dixon: So are you set for the Job briefing and interview ?
    danfos15: Sure thing. I am interested in learning more about this opportunity. I assume you received my resume with my initial inquiry?
    Kim Dixon: I Am Mrs Kim Dixon The Hiring manager to the company, am here to brief and interview you more about the opening position,I'm Age 51 and i am here to brief you more about this job and the interview Okay.

    Just follow the briefing and you can ask questions when i am through. Let me know when you have finished reading and understanding every line. You will be allowed to ask questions later.With each line just respond with an Okay
    danfos15: okay
    Kim Dixon: Tell me about yourself your full name, Age and location

    My reply at this point was: "You know, I just got another email about another job I asked about and I didn't like it. Sorry but I do feel uncomfortable about this one already."

    He/She got off line right away.

    Who on earth ask for age in an interview? That is illegal.

    Wow! So many scamers our there.
    UNEMPLOYED BE AWARE.
