Total money lost $2,700

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I was contacted by a corporate IT recruiter stating they obtained by resume from (I do have my resume posted on their site) and wanted to recruit me for position employment with IT World Web. I was directed to Google Hangout where the recruiter, Diyana Manova, contacted me and proceeded to conduct an eInterview. The net day I was informed that I passed the interview and they wanted to hire me as an administrative clerk in a work from home position. They would issue me a laptop with the software and I was to purchase other required office equipment (desk, file cabinet, fax/scanner/printer, and label maker). Diyana said they would mail me a check to make the office equipment purchase with one of their approved vendors. Later that day I received a check in my email and, as instructed, deposited into my bank account. After sleeping on it over night, I decided that the venture was too shady and I wanted to return the money. Diyana then instructed me to send the money to their manager, Enda Morse (St. Joseph, MO 64504) as a refund using a Moneygram from Wal-Mart. Unfortunately my bank did not catch that the deposit was fraudulent until 4 days later ultimately resulting in me losing the money. Before I began talking with Diyana, I researched her profile on LinkedIn and read up on the company via the internet. All the information was there and it appeared legitimate. Mind you I get contacted by recruiters frequently for employment so using text messaging, IM and other forms of communication is normal. Unfortunately this ocurence was not normal.
