Victim Location 35055
Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
I was told about the position from someone on FB. Data Entry work from home $18/hour, josoft technologies. I did my interview through google hangouts and was hired. Was told I would receive a check to purchase my work materials. I was emailed a check and told to print it out and cut it down to the correct size sign the back and write mobile deposit only it. I had to send pictures of the check before depositing it. I felt it may be iffy, so I called the bank the cashier’s check was drawn off of and gave them the information. They have zero record of the check and said it was fraudulent. When I told the person I had been speaking with on google hangouts they threatened me by stating they had all of my information recorded and would be sending the police after me. I called my local sherriff’s office and they said it was a fraud and to tell them to stick it where the sun doesn’t shine!!
