I was contacted through my email saying that my resume had been accepted. Since i was currently looking for a job i thought it was real. I contacted them and we did an online interview. The interviewer said she worked for World Wide Technology. I got the job and she said i had to send in money for the programs. She gave me this information. Name- Will Mcconnaughy City- St. Clairsville State- OHIO. ZIP CODE - 43219. I googled the name and the first result was a site and there were some similar stories affiliated with that name. Link http://www.scamdex.com/ScamTipReports/21054. The interviewer messaged me then and asked if i was at the moneygram to send the money. I asked her for more information and said i would contact the company directly. I couldn't reach a representative i think the company is closed today. She gave me this number instead. Number 248-702-9029. I googled the number first and i found a site where this person has been using this phone number to impersonate this company and try to steal and scam peoples money. Site- http://whowascaller.com/phone-number/1-248-702-9029. I tried to call it and no one answered. A few seconds later a received a text saying "Hello may i know who is calling and what the purpose of you calling?" I thought this was fishy so i messaged the interviewer and she said that they do not accept calls during business hours then said to call back right now and they will answer.

Someone going by the name of Sharon Berman, hiring people on Sittercity.com. She claims to be a deaf woman living in Wisconsin. She states that her sister is in need of a caregiver but is moving to NY for a business trip. The only details of sickness described didn't even make sense. Her description was "Sickly pneumonia symptoms epilepsy." Sharon says she will pay $500 a week. She sends 2 checks at a time. Each for the amount of $2480. Smart because the limit to deposit a check into ATM is $2,500. These people aren't stupid. She then states that her sister needs an apartment. She instructs people to deposit the checks into their bank accounts, and quickly send money to the "realty agency" for the apartment. She instructs to send via Moneygram or usually Western Union. You will be instructed to send money to a Will McConaughy at 606 Howard Street in Bridgeport Ohio. The fake checks have a lot of mistakes on them. The ones I received were from PNC Bank. The name of the Company sending them read "CCI Logostics, LLC" There is a real company that goes by a similar name. The real company is LOGIsticks not LOGOsticks. That company is nothing but a warehouse located at 718 North Colony Road Wallingford, Connecticut USA 06492. Another obvious tip was that they sent me two checks with the SAME CHECK NUMBERS. Also, the sender address was in Indiana but the routing number was routing number for a different state. As per the envelopes they sent the checks in, The name read Kaylee Bostwick. There are only 2 Kaylee Bostwicks in America. One is a teenage girl who sings on youtube and the second is a college student in Maine. The return address was a company named "Irex". When I looked that up, it was nothing but a contracting group in Lancaster PA. Finally, when you google search the phone number this person is using, the first thing to pop up is fake identities. This phone number is connected to the fake identity of Gary Joel Wassem. The fake address is 18400 W Il Route 120, Grayslake, IL. Both phone numbers associated are (847)231-2465 (847)207-1918. I was able to stop Western Union transaction before I was completely scammed. They tried to take a total of 10k frrom me. Imagine them doing this to 5 people this week. There goes 50k to these people who are scamming. We live and we learn. I hope others are as observant as I was and realize these scams before it is too late.
