I was contacted by phone, and confirmed by email by someone purporting to be from okay relax inc. A company providing virtual assistant services.
I was sent a HSBC Bank Draft for $8620.28, and instructed to deposit into my account, which I did. I was then directed to withdraw $4900.00. Which I also did. Then I was told that my first assignment was to an odd location, but I went to the location and was instructed to find a machine (bitcoin) and deposit the $4,900.00 into the machine. I still had no clue that this was wrong. Then the bitcoin ran out of credits, so I was instructed to go to the next bitcoin machine and continue with my deposit, once again i did this. Then i was told that my first assignment was complete. I was confused because I did not help anyone. Next I was instructed to go to the bank and withdraw the rest of the deposit, the bank would not release any more funds. I called okay relax inc. and reported my bank decided not to release any more funds that day. I reported this, and was told to fine another branch! This was it. Something was wrong, and I knew it that moment I got into uber.
Upon my arrival home I phoned the bank first, and then the police!. It was already too late. I owe the bank the full sum of the bank draft, $8,620.28.
This is crazy what email and company phone number were they using i think im going thru the same situation
