Same thing happened to me!
Thank God I found this web page and see what’s going on…
I just received the same exact text message from 507-479-2388. The text read:
“I’m Donald Mccaul from National HealthCare Corporation. I’m contacting you in regards to your resume”
“This is regarding the position of a data entry clerk, customer service representative and administrative assistant.”
“We are about to open a new facility near you but we will be needing you to work from home now”, thought it was sketchy that he said that before even setting up an interview so I googled his name and came across this page!

Initial means of contact Text message
I applied to a job posting . They contacted me and over 3 days said I was hired and sent me a check for $4600 to supposedly cover home office supplies and macbook.
This involved money orders and bitcoin. Once all that took place after a day of having a somethings not right feeling, I got on and did some research and found a complaint about the same people I am dealing with.
I received the same exact text, odd how they don’t change their name when scamming.
I filed for a job posting and recieved a text message to set up a interview session with Sarah Gross via Donald McCaul. I did supposed interview and she sent me i95 forms and such to fill out and I did. She then stated hours later that my background check had come back and supposed HR sent me an email stating I was hired. They then mailed me a check for $4600 to supposedly purchase a macbook and software needed and desk and such for a home office. I deposited the check into my account and then Sarah Gross proceeds to message me every day until check clears with my bank to insure it cleared. Once cleared she then instructed me to get money order from Post Office for $4500 , I told her they would only allow $2000. She had me go back in and get a money order for $2000 and then proceeded to have me go deposit it in a account at Bank of America. Once that was done she made me find a bitcoin atm and send $500 to the same person. Then she wanted me to Cashapp her another $1500. I repeatedly told her my daily max is $3000… which she insisted on other means of sending her more money. I refused to do anymore. It was all just to fishy. I didn’t want to do any of it to start off with, but with needing a job and the covid situation already taking a job from me, I just had the thought of this has to be real … I need a job. The check has cleared so it has to be legit, correct?!?
What do I do?!?! I know I will be contacting my bank first thing in the morning and have an investigation started. If this is fraud I want justice served!
We are dealing with the same problem as I type this! Unfortunately we went further than you. She contacted us through the hangout app. Sent information and received a large check. Was informed to deposit it and wire transfer in many ways to a vendor to get home office supplies. What do we do now!? I feel our personal information is compromised and I’m extreamly nervous.

During the Covid-19 Pandemic I have been searching for work from home jobs. I found this job for work from home data entry which I have experience in and applied. A few days later I got. a text about speaking with a hiring manager, somewhat unusual but I have had this happen before for other, legitimate jobs that are tech-focused so I tried not to overthink it. Text came from phone number 3204333709 from someone named Donald Mccaul with National Healthcare corporation wanting me to reach out to the HR department to someone named Sarah Gross, which I did, after having an "Interview" over google hangouts and being asked few standard employments questions they told me I was hired and sent me employment documents including I-9 and a few other kinds of forms I have never been asked to fill out before. I did not fill them out for obvious reasons, and they started asking me questions about my bank to "make sure it could accept their payroll" which I have never heard of, again didn’t give them any info because I was getting suspicious. I ended up calling National Healthcare Corporation- the real company whose name they were using and asked if the offered these positions to which they said no and immediately asked "Is the name of the person you’re talking to Sarah Gross? If it is, it’s absolutely a scam, do not give her any personal information." I tried googling about her name and phone number before all this but it didn’t show up on any scam sites that I use so I wanted to make sure it was reported at least once. Luckily they only got my name and address from my resume.
