Type of a scam Business Email Compromise
I was sent an email from steve noah claiming to be from iq formulations offering me a job for 52,000 annually for a data entrt specialist position. He said he saw my resume on nationaljobbank.com. I gave him my name, phone #, and address after looking at their website in reviewing them on glassdoor.com. he told me that I would have to buy my training materials with a check. they issue the check out to me the next day, then there was a letter with the check that was sent from a erica gonzalez her email is [email protected] that she was the financial officer from the financial dept. At this point, they both started coaching me on how to deposit the vheck at the atm. I have all the emails saved in all text messages saved. I also was being tected from a james who used textnow.com to text me from ***-**-***6 and he stated he was from iq formulations as well. Last thing he sent was a offer letter that was written by a Marvin Montana from Human resources; however, was sent from steve noah. The check was from chase bank and they said they couldnt find the account # and the check wasfrom chase bank. The check had the name of a company called Jetro Cash and Carry Restaurant Depot lovatef at 15-24 132nd st. College Point, NY 11356. The check # is 3302179 the routing # is *** and the account # is ***-**-*** and the check was in the amount of $1995.38. I didn’t realize it was a fake check until cashing it. After 3 hours of leaving the bank, i called before 3 pm and reported the fraudelent check. I did not take out any funds and mt bank is putting a security block on my entire account. They still think i font know what is going on, they are waiting these two days for the check to clear, and they want me to sign dome fake job offer form with no company letter head. The check was posted today. Hopefully, you can stop someone who is trying to take advantage of young job applicants. I used a website for mass resume posting and that was on resumepromotion.com. They said they saw me from Nationaljobbank.com and they contacted me through resumepromotion general email. They then started sending me email to ***gmail.com, then they startef texting me at ***8. Steve Noah first called me on 4/10/16 sunday, since that day ive been in constant communication with them. The guy over the phone has a thick african or jamaican accident and his grammer is very bad. He also ignores me when I told him repeatively I was not comfortable and stated I wanted to make sure this is legitment. They only answer when you email them or text them first. They also seem like their always awake and i contacted them from 3 pm in the morning to when I woke up at 10 am. They are very responsive and direct with questions but only when they want to be. Steve said the carry restaurant depot is one of the company(s) owned by iq formulations. Also, i keep getting phobe calls from a female that states she is a job recruiter and asks me for all of my personal information. When I asked her what is the name of her company she said she could not give that out. She gave me the impression tgat she could talk fluently but she kept holding her tongue. She called me today on 4/15/16 from a ***8.
