Type of a scam Employment
This scam started with my applying for a job on Indeed.com for Data Entry Personnel $16-21/hr. I applied and received an email to contact Justin [email protected] for more information. I did and Justin replied that the Data Entry job had been filled, but he needed a personal assistant which paid $650 a week for 10-15 hours. I replied in the affirmative. He replied that I was accepted for the position as expect my first assignment soon. I didn’t respond as I thought it was a scam and then received this message that he was sending me a check to deposit and buy him some items:
