This is a common scam from Moster.com or Careerbuilder or Hotjobs etc.. They seem very legit and even create a website that looks real. They find us by scanning resumes out on these job sites. I personally have a resume out there looking for a new job, so I was easy to contact.
The scam is simple, they take you through a ton of paperwork to make things seem legit and then you start receiving payments, the first few may be real, smaller amounts to get you started, a couple hundred here and there. You deposit the money and wire the balance less your commission to the scammer. Next you get a bunch of high ticket checks, many hundreds or thousands of dollars, you deposit the funds and then wire the amounts less your commission, however now in about 7-10 days the checks or money orders all bounce, they are 100% fake you are owe your bank back thousands of dollars!
Can you say bankruptcy?
