Total money lost $35
Type of a scam Employment
I applied for a job in LinkedIn for RGP as well as many other companies that were hiring. I received an email from Cheyenne Drinen stating that my resume was approved and to contact Latayzha Marshall on the Google hangout application. After an interview via Google Hangout, Latayzha told me to contact Nicholas RAYVEN via Google hangout because he is the hiring manager and would be training me. The original job offer on LinkedIn said the job was in Chesnee, South Carolina; Nicholas told me I would be working from home until the Chesnee office was built. He said I would receive a check in the mail for $4900 to buy my supplies. I received the check on May 27th, 2016 with instructions; I was to contact the payment department at [email protected] and my hiring manager for further instruction. Nicholas told me to deposit the cashier’s check through my bank’s ATM because depositing the check through the ATM is an accounting skill. (It sounded dumb but I was excited. I failed to get the name on the check. If needed, my bank may have the check information on file.) After depositing the check, I was to take a picture of the receipt and send it to Nicholas. The actual amount came to $4903.93; the $3.93 is the amount I had available. On Tuesday, May 31st, 2016, I told Nicholas only $200 of the check had cleared, but nothing had cleared, I had logged into my account online and my available balance said $203.93. He told me to go to Walmart and send the money to Marydolores Gomez Gray through Walmart in Omaha, Nebraska so she could buy my supplies and mail to me. After telling him I didn’t have money for the fee to send the $200, he said to send $180. I went to the bank and found out that $200 was not in my account after all and the check I deposited was being investigated for fraud and was on hold for 5 days. Nicholas stated that was impossible. More unimportant words were passed between us about the check being a scam, but he denied the allegation. He blocked me before I could tell him, the check never cleared, and I was charged a $10 check fee.
