Type of a scam Employment
I initially applied for Customer Service position being advertised on a job posting website, however, I received an e-mail from a Mr.Freedom Walker this week on Monday 03/21/2016 telling me to contact him or Mr.Edwin Jordan. I have been in contact with Mr.Edwin Jordan for all of this week. He told me that they would send me a laptop and a check for the mini office supplies. They sent me a check for $3,850 for these so called supplies. I like an [censored] deposited it into my account on 03/23/2016. I was warned that it was scam so the next day I called the bank that the cashier’s check came from, which was from the Evansville Teachers Federal Credit Union. I contacted this bank to check on the authenticity of this check, they asked me who the remitted was, I told them it was Christine Parsons, they told me it was a scam. I have not touched the money, it is still in my account, but I am freaking out because I do not want to be held liable by my bank for these money, and also Mr.Edwin James, one of the scammers continues to bug me about returning the money back to a Mr.Olufemi Benneth somewhere here in Florida where I live, he asks that I send the money via Money Gram, or Western Union, he also asked me that I not tell anyone about our conversation. I have our whole conversation on Skype, as well as text messages from this week, when this whole thing began. Can someone please help me? I don’t know what to do!
