I was asked to conduct an online interview through yahoo messenger for an admissions assistant position I had found on Indeed.com. The interview was very professional he even sent me the company policies and W-4 which I unfortunately filled out. He promised that it was a work at home job and that all the supplies I would ever need would be paid for by the company. He then proceeds to send me a check via email for the amount of $2000 USD and asks me to deposit it in my account via chase online app. The next day the check was cleared, he then wanted me to transfer the money to an external account that he provided me with. Fortunately chase has a security screen that prevented me from proceeding so then he wanted me to go to a Western Union *Red Flag*. After I declined he told me that it seems that I am doubting the company that I applied for and that if I wont proceed with the transfer that I should just keep the money and that the interview is over. I said fine! If i would've taken that money out I would have lost $2000 because the check would have most likely bounced. Now this person has my name address and social security number. I have already reported this to the FTC and will proceed to contact local law enforcement.Show more...
