WORK AT HOME SCAM

Mr. Alejandro Hunter contacted me via text message from this number 347-345-2786 representing Fortis Healthcare Limited.  All communication was via text and Yahoo Messenger. His email address is Hr_Manager9@yahoo.com.   I also found a very similar scam report with identical comments and questions from the scammer on http://www.ripoffreport.com/r/Christine-Donelly/internet/Christine-Donelly-Christine-Donelly-BH-Lighting-and-general-supplyIncMs-Melissa-Smith-766797

His entire goal was for me to cash a check that they are sending to me to purchase software needed for the “job” but I could only buy from their vendors and using western union/bank account to pay.  Which the check is fake and after it is cashed my bank will catch the hoax and I will be responsible for that check and I will be out of how ever much I paid from my account to buy the software’s.  It appears that they are fronting behind an actual company but after digging I found flaws that lead to discovering this scam.  There is no direct number for contact, no type of actual offer on paper, only communication is yahoo messenger or text message. 

I believed him at first because I did post my information on Caljobs site so when I got the text I didn’t think anything of it until I couldn’t speak directly with this person on the phone and he kept talking about making sure I deposit the check asap. I found the ripoff report from one of the names of the software that he said I would need for work. I should of known better from all the grammatical and spelling errors that this person is not legit!  Below I have attached the text conversation and the Yahoo Messenger conversations.  I have blocked out my personal information for privacy reasons.  I cannot believe I fell for this scam at first but I am so glad I caught it before it was too late.  I hope that they get caught and punished!
