Total money lost $2,400
Type of a scam Employment
An employer named Maria from lakita employ randomly contacted me and has advised that she found my email through LinkedIn. She had then provided a job offer as a Human Resources assistant. Upon signing the employment contract she provided to me by email. Her first job for me was posting a job ad through LinkedIn. After that, she had told me that they work with employers by using bitcoin. As she said it was part of my job to withdraw and deposit through bitcoin the e-transfer an unknown employer has sent me by email with an amount of 2400. Upon doing what I have been told to do, my bank immediately blocked my bank account and has been advised by my branch that I did a fraudulent transaction. Not knowing what was happening, I immediately tried to contact Maria Haynes by email but she never responded back. Now I owe 2400 from the bank even though I am a victim of an employment scam and has a lot of NSF fees which made my account negative.
