Post Title: CL CHECK SCAM
States affected: NY - new york
THE CHECK SCAM FROM CRAIGSLIST-- PLEASE DO NOT FALL FOR THIS AGAIN!!!
JUT A FEW OF MANY E-MAILS ABOUT CASHING A CHECK & DEPOSITING IT FOR SOMEONE AS A JOB !
I got your application resume. I'm looking for someone that can be trusted and reliable to work very well with good understanding. This position i am offering is home-based and flexible, working with me is basically about instructions and following them, my only fear is that i may come at you impromptu sometimes,so i need someone who can be able to meet up with my irregular timings. As my Personal Assistant, your activities amongst other things will include;
* Creating orders/pick slips/invoices/credit memos.
* Processing return authorizations for me as needed.
* Running personal errands.
* supervisions and monitoring.
* Scheduling programmes, flights and keeping me up to date with them.
* Acting as an alternative telephone correspondence while I'm away and
when needed as i am hard on hearing that is why computer works for me.
Making regular contacts and drop-offs on my behalf. Handling and
monitoring some of my financial activities as the case maybe.
Basic wage is $400 Weekly
I'm sure you'll understand I tend to have a very busy schedule at this point. Please note that this position is not office based for now because of my frequent travels and tight schedules, it's a part-time work from home for now and the flexibility means that there will be busier weeks than others. I have reviewed with your Resume and I think I am impressed with it and would like to give you an immediate trial, so if you are interested kindly get back to me. As I have been checking my files and schedules and would need someone urgently to run some errands for me this week/next week, while I am away. I will have some funds sent to you to complete the errands and would get back to you with more information on that, get back to me with your Personal/Contact Details such as:
ADDRESS,Include Apt # If Available(No PO.BOX please):
HOME PHONE #:
Thanks in anticipation of your prompt response
HERE'S ANOTHER ONE:
Thank you for expressing your interest in the available position posted on Craigslist.
We have both part time and full time position available with optional benefits package or pay raise after 90 days. You may not be familiar with all the requirements for this position, the first week is paid on the job training in which you may learn new skills or refresh skills you already have.
As of right now, this employer needs someone to fill this position immediately - we would like you to come in to complete the hiring process as soon as possible. When can you come in? Our offices are open from 8AM to 4PM, Monday through Saturday. My name is Isabella and I'll be the one interviewing you for the position. The interview is more of a requirement than anything else, I don't see any reason why you wouldn't be hired for the position and I would like to interview you as soon as possible. This position is scheduled to start next week.
For the first 90 days you will be considered a temporary employee and paid by our company. After 90 days you will become a permanent employee and paid directly by your employer using their payroll system. Our company has thousands of temporary employees nationwide so our payroll system is complex yet efficient. We suggest you register for a re-loadable debit card using the link below. This card will arrive in the mail before you receive your first payroll period. Our payroll system deposits the earnings of the previous week for each temporary employee on to their re-loadable card every Friday.
As of 6 months ago direct deposit or payroll checks are integrated in to our standard payroll process but you will receive a pay-stub every week. In the last few years we had too many employees complain about not having a bank account or having issues cashing their checks, so we decided to make a change and we've had a lot less problems with payroll in the last 6 months.
Our company is not affiliated with the company that provides this re-loadable card; it can be used just like a regular debit card that you can fund at your convenience online or over the phone. You can withdraw your money at any ATM without fees or pay bills online, it's basically as good as cash. Think of it almost like a debit card that can't overdraft like a bank account and charge you ridiculous fees.
Here is the link you will need to use for registration:
The link provided is unique to you. I will be calling you soon to schedule a time for you to come in to our office, please complete your debit card registration as soon as possible. If you do not register with us in the manner requested, we will not be able to process your application.

Thank you for posting this information about Isabella Anderson! My daughter received the SAME EXACT EMAIL from "Isabella." My daughter lives in Southern California and is trying to find a job. She didn't feel right about the entire email so she forwarded it to me. I found your posting right away! My daughter just got finished reporting "her" to the FTC. Looks like this scammer is working this scam all across the country. Thank you again!

I got that one too
that starts: "Dear Applicant, Thank you for expressing your interest in the available position posted on Craigslist." And asks me to apply for a reloadable credit card right away. It's from Tina William from the "HR Department", email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is the first time I've applied to blind ads for jobs at Craigslist, apparently these scammers are hiding behind more normal-sounding job ads. Out of 3 résumés I sent, 3 resulted in this kind of scammer contact. No more blind ads for me!

This is why, when replying to a job ad on CL that has no local address or phone number, you never send a resume or personal info at first. Wait till they verify that they are legit.
