Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
Recieved a message on Linked In about a job opportunity from an account of a person I know who was hacked.
I sent my phone number
I recieved several texts.
I gave no further information.
I recieved a United States Postal Priority Mail Envelope
Inside the envelope a letter asking me to deposit a check
Cashier check was given to me in my name with the amount of $2,998.00
I am supposed to deposit this check
Purchase with the cash $2550 in Money Orders
5 Books of Stamps
and keep $300 for myself
It was signed from a person named Benson Anthony PHD, Senior Qualitative Director\
The envelope also included an Assessment Form
The only way to reach out to the person is via text.
I have not deposited. I feel like this is a scam.
