Type of a scam Employment
I received a text message yesterday and I was told my application approved. It told to me confirm my email address or reply with my email address if I did not receive the email. I have been applying to many different jobs and thought this was a legitimate message. He sent an email and only asked for me to submit my name and address if I wanted to talk to him about the job when he returns from the states. He goes into detail about the job and what you will get paid for. If you applied for this position do NOT respond to the email.
He is not an employer that is wanting to hire me, he wants me to cash a check and then send money to another account. I have received 2 email messages and several text message from different numbers stating it is Lee Gardner Decorator and letting me know he has already sent me a check for work I have not even done.I copied and pasted the 2 emails he has sent to me. On your website it looks like someone else has already reported that he is a scam. I also contacted the Federal Trade Commission and was told it was a scam.
