Was send an email by a person name Esther Rhinehart requesting my address and full name to send the "check". Was also received a letter as well and it came via usps priority mail. Asked to cash the check and to send an email to e.rhinehart@*******.com to verify that I've received the check and to wait for further instruction.

Then was told to take $300 for my compestion and to head to the local Western Union and to wire money. Same thing happen with another person, but under a differnet company name but using the same phone number. I have already reported this to the bank and inquiry if the account it came from is legit or not, but will check the first thing saturday morning.

I will update as it goes.

Hmm...

AUTHOR: Lis - ()

Yeah, I know what you mean. Banks should have by now have been able to put an alert on these types of things, and the company in questions isn't a legit and innocent company. They just reuse the same company and address along with the number because it'll redirect to a voicemail set up in advances.

The only differences between now and before is that we're able to easily check a business's licences to operate by verifiying online or through BBB, not only that, but with technology advances, it becoming easier to modify a check and making it look so legit, it harder to detect if it a scam til a few weeks later.

Not only that, with the economic the way it is...this amount of money is tempting, and even the letterhead is looking more legits, without the grammarical error and what not.

Why do people continue to fall for this?

AUTHOR: Giselle - ()

Unbelievable! This scam has been around for YEARS and there are literally tens of thousands of reports online of people either falling for this scam or having the common sense to realize it is a scam and they just want to report it. It boggles my mind that in 2014, people continue to fall for this.  Do people really think checks are just falling from the sky?

The company reported is probably an innocent and legit company. The scammers like to use real company names in order to gain the victim's trust.  The checks are either stolen or they are made easily with a printer/copies and software.  It is not rocket science.

CONFIRMED

After i linked the post by the user on here, i haven't received a replied. Also, the bank has posted a noticed that the check is a fraud.

 

Just received another email from the same person but using a different name and research company. Only excuses now is that they need an experience worker to replace a person who left.

 

be wary of any email ending with research as it a fraud.

Just emailed the bank that the check is supposely be issued from, and it turned out to be a fraud.

Not sure how a person is able to obtain the check or is able to product such check.

Not even sure if the person is even real, but i'm out of $2,240 and I don't know if i am able to pay it back.
