GE Healthcare offered me a job working from home.  They would provide laptop to do so but I had to buy software at $293.99 which I did. Now I'm afraid I have been scammed out of this money.  What should I do?

   No they didn't.   Some Internet scammer offered you a fake job in order to con you into sending him untraceable cash. 

" They would provide laptop to do so but I had to buy software at $293.99 which I did. "

  Didn't it strike you as odd that a company as large as General Electric would require employees to buy their own software?   That's absurd.  Did you notice that communications were through free services like Yahoo, Gmail, etc...?   Real businesses use their own domain names for corporate communications.

   You also failed to mention that you were required to send this cash via Western Union personal transfer (which happens to make your cash untraceable).    No legit business does this and there are warnings at W.U. offices and websites about sending such transfers to persons you don't know.  Such a request is a sure sign that you are being scammed.

  Sorry, but you have done the online equivalent of handing cash to a stranger on the street.  Hopefully, some of the above red flags will keep you from experiencing this in the future.
