RDR incorporation

Derrick –

Victim Location 14607

Total money lost $5,606

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I went onto the popular job board, ZipRecruiter, and applied for a position listed as ‘Administrative/Executive Assistant’ for an organization called RDR Incorporation. Shortly after, I recieved a response to my resume from someone claiming to be "Michelle Younger, the HR Director of RDR, Inc." I was offered the opportunity to earn $400.00, up front, if a ran some trial tasks while she was out of town. If I proved that I could do the job, she would set up an in-person interview when she was back in the area. Long story short, I was overnighted (via FedEx) a certified check, in the amount of $5606.00. I was then instructed to deposit the check into my personal bank account, keep $400 and then to follow up with her in order to receive the task instructions. The task would have something to do with sending funds to a foster home, on the behalf of RDR. Inc.

I knew something didn’t seem right. I did some research and was quickly able to confirm that the check was fraudulent. Had I not done my research, I would have wound up depositing a bad check into my account, sending money to someone else’s account and then been "none the wiser" until the check bounced. Had I fallen for the scam, I would have lost $5606.00 plus whatever I was charged for the bad check.

Below is a copy and paste of the first email that I received in regards to the position.
