Type of a scam Employment

I applied for a job with this so called company stating they are hiring in the Pennsylvania area, i applied and they got back to me and said the jobs were filled and offered me a job overseas all i had to do was send a check or money order to IGG Holdings that is in South Carolina and incorporated in Georgia, i looked into the company with the Georgia corporation Dept and it says it have been in business for 10 years so i thought it was good and sent the money they said when they receive the money order they will email you a receipt, a month later and i sent two emails to them and still no receipt and no reply back and the money order was cashed i checked with the post office, i did a little more digging and come to find out they are both the same company. When you call Worldwide Petroleum Contractors you speak to a [censored] named Rick who is a nasty prejudices person when he is confronted with questions, he kept calling me a dumb Yankee and a [censored] and i told him after being talked to like that because i had two questions that you are tough on the phone but wouldn’t be in person and when i said the reports this is a scam he hung up on me. Rick says he has nothing to do with IGG Corporation but if you look on IGG web site and click on Web site development Ricks number comes up, so what does web site development have to do with Worldwide Petroleum its all a scam. I did everything i was asked to do and waited over the 3 weeks before asking for deployment information and says 48 hrs someone with get back to you and its over 110 hrs and still no one got back to me so i called and that’s when i called just to ask the question and the [censored] Rick was nasty with me, Its a phony company robbing peoples money and i hope Rick gets his day soon. Someone should start investigating both companies because they are the same.

Put up an ad for security in philly for 75k a year. I submitted resume and received an email stating the position was full but offered employment in rio Brazil for a large sum of money. The links brought me to a fictious site to pay for a background check that was around $100. It looked fake so looked back at the email and noticed errors. Researched the company and came up with nothing. Researched the number and came up with scams.

I’m not sure if this is a scam but it sure looks like one. Its sapost to be a world wide company but look at there websites it says nothing about the company. Just trying to get you to pay for a background check. The salaries they are offering are 100x anywhere else just dosen’t look good.
