James Simmons’ (disabled) father called into the mainline to find out if his son is involved in a scam. It has been advised that the consumer received an email about employment from a complaint called the Adecco Group. The consumer advised that under the terms of the employment, he was to receive a check from the business. With that check he was asked to buy things such as Apple I-Tune cards (consumer bought 10 cards at up to $200.00 in denomination and scratched off back and gave info to business) and other technology based items.
The consumer was shortly after advised that the check sent by the business was not valid. However in the meantime, the consumer spent money of his own, to buy software the business asked the consumer to buy.
The consumer advised that he did reach out to the business to advise of his bank’s findings. The business then sent a replacement check in the amount of 8850.00. Both checks sent to the consumer were sent via FedEx using overnight mailing. The 6850.00 check was sent from the address 8805 Fallbrook Dr., Houston, TX77064 and the 8650.00 (did not deposit this check) check was mailed from 705 Macos Way, Whitehouse, CA 90006.
Please see attachment for a copy of the letter that came with the $8550.00 check and FedEx labels…along with a copy of the replacement check and deposit slip for the first check.
