I applied for a job listed on craigslist here: http://atlanta.craigslist.org/nat/ofc/1572815178.html,
I was contacted via email by a Kramer Runyon to do an online interview via Yahoo Instant Messenger with a Ray Tim. After an hour and half interview briefing process was told I had the job and would begin training today. I received corresponding emails from other members of the company pertaining to employee agreements and training tasks. Upon further investigation of the company found two reports listed on the website "ripoffreport.com" that matched my situation detail for detail. links here: http://www.ripoffreport.com/work-at-home-business/the-computer-company/the-computer-company-in-ct-ash-38f47.htm
This morning I was scheduled to begin my training at 9am est sharp. I signed on to Yahoo IM, and Mr. Ray Tim the interviewing manager I spoke with yesterday, greeted me. I confronted Mr. Tim with all the information I had found and requested he verify that his company is true and legit. I asked him for his EIN to verify with the BBB (if this could be done i had no idea) and he gave me this Tax ID: 26-0257619 and company name: MSI ( Hope USA). When I asked for the address and phone number and CEO's name he accused me of thinking of them lying. Furthermore i received an email from a Dennis Greg (Dennis Greg [firstname.lastname@example.org]) that a check had been put in the mail to me yesterday (2/4/09) via Fed Ex and the tracking number was :870327185954. It was mailed to me by a Shane Mathern in Cape Coral, FL. I was never told yesterday a check was on it's way to me. Meanwhile, Mr. Ray Tim, Via Yahoo IM, began to tell me about the check as well. I then asked him who his bank was, to which he told me to just cash it through my bank, but when i advised him my bank was not in my state, it would be easier to cash it at his bank, he never responded. Then an hour after advising Mr. Ray Tim, I wasn't happy about being apart of his check fraud scam, FedEx arrived at my door dropped off an envelope, no signature required. I Opened the envelope and low and behold a check for $2750 made to me. Electronically signed by a Terry P. west, Remitter's name is Carolyn Skipper. The bank is VyStar Credit Union. Upon further investigation, i have found that VyStar is an Online Credit Union Bank of which I plan to contact to alert them of this check fraud scam. The back of the check lists security features to look for, and none of the three security features are even found on this check. Mr Ray Tim, denied continuously that this was not a scam and that the company was 100% legitimate to my demise he was of course lying. I do not plan to cash this check but to get it to the right hands of whom should be alerted to its fraudulent nature.
Please be aware of these people, Do not cash their checks. Report them on www.IC3.gov.
