After online introduction and a few interview questions, I was told by "Marilyn Shawn" that I was hired for a work at home position. I was told that a check in the amount of $2460.00 would be sent to me by Federal Express. I was told to deposit that check into my checking account on Friday, March 17th. On March 18th, I was told to withdraw $2300.00 and deposit that amount into a Bank of America account for Michael Jonathan. On Monday, March 20th, I was told to send $140.00 to Beatrice Boatner by walmart to walmart funds transfer. The $2460.00 check was returned NSF and my checking account was debited and closed by Wells Fargo. On Tuesday, March 21st, I reported this scam to Ofc. W.A. Bicket of Raleigh Police Department. Raleigh police have the Federal Express packages and the 2nd check in the amount of $3700.00 which was delivered on Monday, March 20th.
