  Information
Name:
   Michele Grieco
Email Address:
   mmichelegrieco@aol.com, michelegrieco@merckinc.or
Received email saying the I had been shortlisted for a data entry job at Merck&Co. I emailed them back and they sent me an attachment that explained the company and the job. Then they told me to download AIM and report at a certain time to start my interview. After my interview I received an email saying that I had gotten the job. Next they asked a few more questions, then assigned me to look up certain words and write an essay about what the words meant . The next morning I received an email telling that my package with my startup funds has been sent and to follow it's tracking number. The item was receive by USPS and they told me this was a scam and they took my package and they are investigating. I called Merck and they told me that they couldn't answer my question, about fraud ,but she would connect me to a Michele Grieco. These people made me jump through a lot of hoops that made the job seem legit, but it was all a scam.
