Victim Location 92399
Type of a scam Employment
I was contacted by a woman named Barbara Hall in regards to an open purchasing position. The e-mail was very detailed and an application was even attached to the e-mail. The position was offered at $72,500 salary with commission and bonus opportunities. No interview, the e-mail stated I would not meet with my supervisor until after my 2 week probationary period and a 1099 would be given for my first 2 weeks of employment. They offered me to work from home or said I could move to Los Angeles to work at the main office. All equipment would be provided if I chose to work from home, they would e-mail me my orders and I’d complete my duties from home. I checked out the website and also called the number provided on the forms to confirm that the business was an actual place of employment. Everything seemed okay until I looked them up on BBB. They claim to be an accredited business on BBB and also offer their information on BBB. However, when I went to confirm on the BBB website, their business was not found. I also Googled them without putting in the website they provided and just Googled the name and nothing was found. Red flags all around. Be careful if they contact you. Seems legit however, they did not check out when I researched them further.
