Complaint Review: Limeade - Bellevue, Washington,
Limeade Lee Rossini, Michael Schott, Ken Pouliot Work at home scam from Limeade Bellevue, Washington,
*UPDATE Employee ..inside information: Limeade response
On July 24 2019, I received a text from a man named Michael Schott. He told me the recruitment team from his company Limeade reviewed my application on indeed and asked if I'm interested in a work from home position where I will be making $25/hr. OK. He tells me to download Telegram to conduct an interview, so I did. A man named Lee Rossini texted me questions about past jobs, my main attributes, etc. Lee told me he was the former vice president of Microsoft. He said I will be undergoing training for $15/hr. In order to get started with the training, the company was going to send me a check so I can purchase working materials. The funds were also to prove if I can handle funds being placed in my trust or care. I had to create a bank account so I did.
I googled the company and they seemed to be legit. Limeade is an employee engagement software that improves employee well-being and strengthens workplace culture.
Days later I received a check via FedEx of $3,650 from the National Air Traffic Controllers Association. I asked if they were affiliated with them and Lee said yes. I deposited the check, but they had to process the deposit. As soon as the funds were made available, I had to purchase a Google play gift card of $200. Since the funds were not yet available, I was asked to make the purchase out of my own pocket and refused. Lee told me that shouldn't be a problem and to wait until the funds have been made available. I went online and saw money was made available. However, I could not withdraw them. A few days later Capital One closed my account and sent me a letter the deposit was denied due to a fictitious check. I texted Lee and sent a picture of the letter but he says the check is real. I said the bank doesn't think so. I asked him why he couldn't ship the working materials directly and he said that would take a long time. I wrote a long time is better than never.
Days later Lee changes his name on Telegram to Ken Pouliot. I asked him why. He said his company was no longer affiliated with WNS Holdings so he can't recruit for them. He said he is working with his company to get the working materials, but I had to call certain numbers and put in a code. Then he asks me to receive texts and give him the code. I eventually realized what he was doing. When you use your number too many times to verify it, google says "this phone number has been used too many times". So I refuse to give him anymore codes and tell him to just send the working materials He then says not to contact him again.
