*UPDATE EX-employee responds: Scam

 I received an email from an Isaac Jenkins, offering me a job as Personal Assistant. I did some research on the internet and could not find anything that looked suspicious.   The website for the his company, HRFAX.COM, seemed to be very realistic.  I received my first assignment from him the same day I was approved to work for them.  It was in regard to a client who had a damaged painting called "Woman".  The painting was from a Russian painter name Sarvey Pavlov.  I began that assignment, and was asked to do a few more in between, such as researching Limo and Luxury car services in my area, and a Print/Media assignment, where I had to research 3 small magazines/newspapers in my local area.  I then got an e-mail from Mr. Jenkins, stating that the client was very upset because he wasn't able to send payment to the artist through his Western Union account.

 In the email below he stated cannot send more than $1000 a day online using Western Union so I did research and found you can send $10,000 .

These are the e-mails I received from Mr. Jenkins:

I just got off the phone with the client in regards to the art gallery project. Your additional assistance is required.  Our client tried to pay western union on-line from their corporate account. Western Union advertises its possible to submit payments online, but when you try to send more than $1,000 a day from the account it wont allow that much. I called western union and they told me you have to do that from any western union office. Our client told me they spent like an hour trying to do something online, as they are used to do everything from their cash management online and talked to western union customer care but no luck. They need your assistance at this point because it was not possible to send the money online.

So, they want their assistant take care of everything. Since the art gallery requires only western union, our client will pay you the money for the art item(s) in advance plus your bonus and you will western union art gallery.  You will be paid additional $300 for that assignment.

First of all, I want you to understand that part-time assistant is not only virtual work from home. You have to work on assignment locally. Assisting with corporate gifting in one of your responsibilities. Our client trusts us because this is our existing client, they have already purchased a lot of stuff using our services.

Normally, you would pay western union with the company card. However, as per the agreement, you will get the card only once you qualify your trial period. This is our company policy and we simply    cannot provide company cards 1st week and then spend time on checking every expense.

You will find your direct deposit on this page


This is exactly the same as we use for payroll as well.  We expect    our client will place deposit of approx.:

-    $7,000 (Art Item)
-    $1,800 (shipping)
-    $400 (approx. money gram/western union fees might need to    re-confirm with them)
-    $300 (Your Bonus)
    Total: $9,500

    In case you can negotiate other payment options with the art  gallery, so they provide with their bank account our client will pay them directly. If no your assistance is needed.  It is important to realize that you are not required to take any action until you see the payment in your account. You may keep this account to received future payroll from our company. Let me know if your    bank charges some $$$ to set up an account. This amount would be sent together with funds for the the art gallery, western union transfer fees your bonus.

Again, there will be no checks. Our client will pay to your account    (or the art gallery if available) and you will need to work on it only once the money is in your account.

Let me know if you have any questions. There are also other tasks already available, but I want to make sure this one is taken care of 1st since this client is important to us.

AUTHOR: Nakooma - ()

I was doing the same thing about sending money to a someone in Russia for a painting, but I looked up the guy that had put the 4952.00 dollars on my prepaid card, and then  i couldn't get it off, but I have proof that this man was not buying a painting, but was sending money.  The company that I had got the money from was someone had a dealing in the Oil business.  I can find the name of this company on they website of the prepaid card I got.  I would like to get paid for the money I did make, but what there little clock said. I had made about $452.35.  Never got paid,  and I still have this time-tracking tool still popping up on my computer.  I am going to complain to the BBB.
