Flamingo Pharmaceuticals/Virginia Perkins Virginia Perkins Scam Job,Counterfeit checks,fake interview, fake job offer, no voice contact Internet, Nationwide
Was contacted a week later from applying for a job listing saying that I would have a interview through Yahoo Messenger from the individual representing the company. I was interview and HIRED all in the same day all in the same conversation. I felt suspicious about that but decided to play along. Next day same time in the morning I was instructed to do an three paragraph essay to test my work ethics, I questioned that because something like that would usually be asked during the application process or interview but after I was hired? I did it, still playing along I submitted the essay all while still contacting this individual through Yahoo Messenger. I than asked if I could receive another form of contact information (ie phone number, office number) so I can call and actually talk to someone she stated that all her job was to interview me and get me set up with my work materials. A supervisor would than contact me with that info and get me set up for training and orientation. The job was supposedly a at home job that would move me to an office building a few weeks later. The job posting was for a Admin position with Discovery Comm. not for what they hired me for. I also contacted Discovery but was unsuccessful with getting any information about this company in which they stated they where partners with, I saw no proof. I was also told I would be compensated for all the work I had done and was going to do to get this stuff done. The individual than sends me a check for my materials tells me to deposit it and inform her about the availability the next day. She DIDN'T ask me for account info so being cautious I took the check had several bankers verify it it was good. But who gives a complete stranger a good check to cash not having done any background checks? Is what I thought..I than had to western union those funds to "vendors" for the software. Next day she states that it wasn't enough funds sent the vendors need a little more they send another check thinking that it would be good I deposited it without any issues... until the next day the funds where not available. I call and go to the bank and they inform me that both checks where COUNTERFEIT all my accts. where closed and frozen. Before my departure I informed the individual that I would contact my bank because it did not show I check her availability on Messenger 30 mins after they where no longer active.
