Victim Location 07009
Type of a scam Employment
Address appears to be as a recruiter, then instructs you to a Mr Alexander M Scott using all Hangouts. They put you through a Google Hangout Interview and say you are hired. They ask for your Bank Account Information saying that they will wire you the money for you to purchase Company approved Equipment and training material. I didn’t feel comfortable with doing that and they say its company protocol. After still not doing so they say they will send a check to you for you to be deposited and must be done in a specific way. I explained that the check needs to be validated and they say do as you are told. Below will be copies of some of the Google Hangouts conversation:
