The Glatt Group

Kathleen –

I just got scammed by them. I was on and I was messaged for a job I wanted to bid on. They asked for my email so I could go on hangouts and have an interview. A lady named Lisa Rose signed me up for the job and the lady that sent me a copy of the check is [email protected] tried to send me a check through FedEx but it failed two times. Lisa was so desperate for me to get the check that I went ahead and decided to print it and deposit it via mobile bank app. A few hours later I got a call from my bank.
My bank account is now frozen and the check was fraudulent.
