Type of a scam Business Email Compromise
I put in several resumes online at careerbuilder.com and indeed.com. I received an email about employment working from home as a Local Agent. Everything looked legit. Their website was full of information. I received an email with attachments for I-9 form. Things that you would normally receive from an employer. They sent me a link to connect to their HR Portal. On the portal it had information such as my salary, my profile to upload documents, ability to send messages to find out daily tasks. The portal looked very organized and very legit. They asked me to complete tasks like advertising on social media sites. I had to create a business pages. Then one day I received a task that consisted of receiving a deposit into my account from a trusted and very commonly used site Money gram! Then I was to send through Money gram a portion of the deposit and the rest was mine as a bonus for completing the task. A couple hours later I find out that my bank account is frozen and is under review with the Fraud Dept. Now, I’m supposed to wait 24-48 hours to hear back from my bank to find out what’s going on and what going to happen. Trust me, I learned alot from this experience and I hope no one has to experience something like this ever!!!
