I applied to a translation job on Upwork by someone impersonating as an employee of Transperfect. The person had the same name of the real HR person as Transperfect.
I was interviewed over G chat and was offered a job. I was told that my training would start the next day. I woke up early to start the training and I was told that I needed to buy office supplies, a laptop, other items needed for the work.
The impersonator sent two checks and asked me to buy from two different vendors via Zelle. After I sent the money via Zelle I realized that this might have been a scam so I did some research online and found out similar scams online… I lost 1700 dollars!!!
