My husband was contacted by a 'human resources' recruiter after posting a resume on CareerBuilder.com telling him he got hired to work as a customer services rep
for this company, TNGH INC. Theyre supposedly a concierge service that helps business start off by setting up offices for them. He was to fax them his hiring info- ss#, id, void check, etc... what any company asks for when youre hired. He did. The first day he returned all of his paperwork, he got $500 deposited into his account. this is where we got suspicious. Who gives you that much money the first day youre hired? He got 100 for hiring bonus, 400 to make a 'money Gram' under his own name and address to send to another person. He was never really told what to do other than that, and was never given written instruction for anything further, which he also thought was odd. This is when my husband decided not to touch the money until he got some kind of written confirmation, and more information on the company, which he waited 2 days for, and they never replied. He left the money in his bank account, and a day after his first deposit, there was another 500 deposit into his account. He also left that alone, and decided to go to the bank the next day to try to change his account number, and move his own money just in case.
Well, the day he was going to go to the bank, it turns out that the company had done a return deposit and taken out 500. Those 500 would have been taken from his own money had he taken out cash to send to whomever they were asking that he send money to, but since he didnt, they just took their own deposit back. According to the banker my husband spoke to, this is a straight up scam. They make you take out cash, and then they take back deposits and void checks so that they get to take your money back, we didnt get hustled, but im writing this to notify anyone else. I researched this TNGH INC and found nothing on them, so im trying to write this to help someone else out.
Also, check their address and phone number, the number is from Utah on their site, but their address lists las vegas, nv, which you cant even find on a map. Even at that, you cannot talk to someone when you call, they have to call you (they call back blocked) and you just leave a message for someone to call back.
This is what was written by someone else earlier today, my story is almost the exact same except that I was the one being contacted, luckily my instincts said..... call the Better Business Bureau! The rep. there told me this is the 18th name they have used and they catch them and she says it seems like they are back in business. So please when applying for any job, this company esp. is tricky and may use many different names. Dont give them the info!
