I received a text message from an employer by the name of Widex that said they wanted to do an interview through Google Chat. They told me they would send me a check express and I did receive it the next day. They told me the check was non-cashable and it was for $3800 and that I needed to deposit the check into my account then call them after it was deposited.

  1. I received this too, fortunately for me, I felt uncomfortable about them wanting me to purchase itunes cards to pay for my Macbook, so I didn’t make the purchase. 5 days turn around and thank GOD, I didn’t, as the “check” was withdrawn from my account as it was insufficient!! BEWARE!

  2. I’m just losing my time I got on the same chat conversation, and after they asked to cash a check I knew was a scan God Bless them.
