I was offered a job in the internet. I was to received a money wire from their company and send it to a person using Western Union. I will get 7% from this wired amount. Everything looked ok, they had an website, with address and contact nos. (which I didnt verify) and sent me an agreement to sign. The only thing is all correspondence was through email.

I was asked to open a bank account for this specific job. Which I did. Money was wire to my account a couple of days. I let the money stay in my account for 4 days. After which I went personally to the bank to withdraw the money in cash and wire the appropriate amount to Western Union. I sent the notice to the contact person that I have done the transaction.

I got an email for another wire in my account again. I checked my account online to verify this and I waited for the amount to clear.

That afternoon I tried to check my account online and I was surprised that I didnt have any access. I called the bank customer service. Which they informed me that the previous wire has been fraud and they are reversing it. Now I am being ask by the bank to pay the 1st withdrawed amount.

I tried to contact the company through email and now they are not returning my email. I tried calling the numbers in the website and to my dismay its not a valid number.

The bank says I have to pay the withdrawn amount. How can that be, shouldnt the bank check all bank wires, it was credited to my account and I had no problem getting the money in cash from the bank office. Anybody would assume that the wire is clear and verified by the bank to be ok.

Now I dont know how to deal with this dilema.
