Details of Scam Report
Scammer messaged me on Wallapop under the name "Tien D.", claiming their phone was faulty. They provided me with the email "" and asked me to email as they could "barely see my message". I sent an email stating the condition and price of the item, as they asked. I received a response, but the name attached to the email this time was "Victor Joe". He said he would add $50 to the price of my item if I would hold it 2-3 days, and would have his assistant mail me a bank check if I would provide him with my personal information. I responded simply with "Please do not contact me again," and noticed that someone else had reported this same scammer here.

Details of Scam Report
Claimed to be in Puerto Rico and was in immediate need of a Personal Assistant and was willing to pay $25/hr....they got my resume on Zip Recruiter posted from a person named "Stacey Starnes". He was to have office equipment and a sign on bonus sent to my home and would deposit money into my bank account to cover expenses until he returned to the US. I decided to look up who Victor Joe, Artist from West Chandler, AZ was....of course there was no one. I decided to be a good personal assistant by asking my new employer if I could get a webpage or Facebook page showing some of his work so I could become familiar with it, and I let him know the only thing I could find was from Scamalot.....haven't heard from him since and I don't think I will!!

Let me get to your questions first: 1) The jobs I’ve held work directly with Supervisors, or like my present job I work directly with the CFO of the ------------------. Through these experiences I have fielded unwanted phone calls, booked travel (which I do for the entire campus right now), correspondence, e-mail, ordering, etc. etc. Working directly for one person actually sounds a bit more relaxing, but you be the judge. 2) Yes, I would be taking this as my primary job. I’m in --------------- right now but my heart and family will always be in ---------------- so for the right job, I’m more than willing to make the move. 3) I definitely would want this to be a full-time job, looking at Google Maps I see that it will be at least a one hour drive for me and don’t see the point in taking that on for a part-time job. 4) I do have professional references, I would be happy to send them to you if after this I’m still being considered as your assistant. 5) As far as hours go I know a full-time job is normally 40hrs/week, but when working I prefer to stay until the job is complete so going over has never been a problem for me as long as I enjoy the work. 6) Privacy & Code of Conduct….wow, you want a lot in a few lines. If you take a look at my resume, I have worked in a school type setting for at least 15yrs. When working with students, their privacy is of great importance; at ---------------------- I worked directly with the school psychologist and everything had to be kept private. Now at the university none of the changes. In other words, don’t gossip, handle yourself with grace, validate others feelings without judgment and fix anything you might have messed up asap! That pretty much covers all of it. 7) Petty Cash at the university is frowned upon, people forget receipts, etc. In a perfect world it is a set amount of money, aside from other accounts, for last minute purchases. A receipt will replace the money used and on a weekly or monthly basis the accounts will need to balance (like a check book), and then the used money replenished. 8) Describe myself… work I prefer to be organized, busy, learning new things always, starting and ending projects, decision maker, friendly, good listener, self-starter and enjoy when people need my assistance. Not a control freak by any means, but just like to get it done the right way the first time so I will give a different opinion if the situation might require it. At home, I love sports and have played softball, tennis, volleyball and an assortments of other outdoor activities. I have five small wonderful dogs I love to pamper and live in ---------- with the most wonderful man. I love reading, cooking, music, art, hanging out with friends and/or family….love to see new places and explore the local life….I really could go on but I think I’m sounding a little self-absorbed and that is not an accurate impression of me. I volunteer when needed and work hard at resting or playing or at work! 9) Victor, no matter your decision in hiring a personal assistant….I always give it my best shot with 110%. A quick note I should add, it appears that you need someone to fill the position immediately? Since I adore my current boss, I could never leave without giving him at least 2 weeks’ notice. However, at this time I work 4/10’s for the university and am in ---------------- every Friday, Saturday and Sunday and would be willing to work those days for you until the notice to the university is done. It’s been a pleasure Victor, hope you keep me in your considerations. ------------------------------- ------------------------------ ------------------------------ ------------------------------ From: victor joe [] Sent: Thursday, October 13, 2016 12:00 PM To: --------------------------------------- Subject: Re: New Candidate: Belinda -------------- for 'Administrative Assistant/General Office' Thank you for sending your resume, Your interest about the job has been received.
