USA Leasing Solution ITM Leasing Company Tried to scam me New York City New York

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

ITM Leasing Company (likely aka USA Leasing Solutions) sent me an email today using the name "Elsie Cohen" (elsiecohen@itmleasing.com), asking me to call (347) 316-8010 for "additional information" regarding a "Project Manager" position paying 93K, and absent a URL. On Google, I found the company (itmleasing.com) and can confirm that this site is where this scam originates from due to the matching telephone contact number. 

The email tipped me off immediately with the first sentence: "Let me introduce myself....we are a European company," followed with the usual crap about "expanding offices, etc.," followed by the predictable minimal qualifications necessary for the job.

I am embarrassed to note that, after I looked them up online, I was tempted to consider their legitimacy because their website is EXTREMELY convincing, very well-built, and cites legitimate companies as "clients." Also, the English in both the email and on the website is nearly flawless. It even has an application page which, if it does not tip you off, it should, because the entire applications consists of basic data entry for your contact information and does not query beyond your current employer.

When I called, I immediately knew it was a scam because the call went to a very poor quality voicemail, in which a male voice indicated that they were "busy" (in the middle of the workday) and that someone would call me back. 

I am a first-time user at ripoffreport and am posting this warning because this particular scam is BY FAR the most convincing that I have ever run across.

Don't fall for it. Unfortunately, the scammers are overseas (of course) and are taking advantage of their location outside US jurisidiction to evade any legal liability.

Two things to sum up: (1) do not fall for it; and (2) more importantly, contact your State's congress representatives to push for legislation to enable the USA to extend a long-arm statute in order to hunt down and hold these garbage pitchers anonymous.

Stay Safe!

Fake Company

AUTHOR: - ()

Yes, it is a fake company operating out of the Ukraine with a very good web designer. I am surprised at the sophistication of the website. However, a scam is a scam, and this company is offering fake jobs with a predictable pattern: they send "samples" and ask the "applicant" to generate a hypothetical report. They then praise the applicant and, eventually, the hook: they ask you to buy supplies, computers, whatever, on your credit card and instruct you to send the goods to them with a promise of a reimbursement check. When the check arrives, it is a fake check and you are out several hundred, or thousands, of dollars. I am OUTRAGED that the government cannot adopt foreign policy that mandates collaboration between countries in order to crack down on these criminals. We, the USA, have built most, or all, of the software that allows them to operate and, to say that it is too hard for the government to go after overseas criminals, it is a lie on its face because any country capable of building the tools the criminal uses are able to use those tools in order to find the crooks if someone takes enough time and makes enough of an effort to put a stop to overseas scammers fleecing hard-working American citizens.

What is the scam?

AUTHOR: rjohnson101985 - (USA)

May I how this scam operates?  How do they make money?  If they were simply offering a fake position in a fake company, what is the point?

Same thing happened to me

AUTHOR: Skm - (USA)

 All the details listed above also happened to me. Elsie contacted me about a position with her company and had me apply and wanted to schedule an interview. I applied but before the interview I did some googling and discovered that at the website is located in the Ukraine not Germany as their website says. Also their company phone number is a google voice number which made me even more suspicious. I skipped the interview. This "company" is up to something shady. Thanks for posting this report and confirming my suspicions.
