Victim Location 46055
Total money lost $1,700
Type of a scam Employment
Two individuals named: Carlos Carranza AND Joel Pagan Rosado representing a company that goes by few different names, hired me and a colleague of mine to do IT project with few companies (Acuative; www.acuative.com) – (Guest-tek; www.guest-tek.com) – (HP to install HP printers) then they never paid us a dime.
Their main way of contacting people is through text messages and email. Initially, Carlos; who goes by the name Charlie and uses a google voice phone number, told me the contractor company was late in approving the pay. That’s why I took the second job to represent Guest-Tek.
They send you work orders very late through the night with a "nice" pay that makes it worth the risk. Then of course they never pay.
After the second project, I was contaced again by Carlos/Charlie to take a 3rd project. I refused since I wasn’t paid. That’s when he assured me that he will be receiving the pay next day and sending direct deposits right away.
Be warned. Never send them your personal information; bank accounts, address…etc)
They say they are from few different companies. Here are few names:
Indy Pos Systems LLC – 3712 Lafayette Rd, Ste 103. Indianapolis, IN 46222
Latin Pos Inc – 12878 Longleaf Ln, Fishers, IN 46038. Phone: (317) 969-0138

Once I submit this scam alert here I will be reporting it to Law enforcement and will also contact all companies I did work for to warn them of the scam so they don’t use future business with these individuals.
Best wishes to all.
