I got scammed from someone claiming Hopewell Holdings. They sent me a job offer and then shortly a cashiers check. Then they asked me to send some of the money and keep $400 of it as my pay. I had my bank hold the money until we know it cleared. Sure enough, it was no good. My bank reversed the charges before it was too late. Just as a warning to any other potential victims, Here is what I got:

Thanks so much for posting about that... I received the same email. I inquired about a receptionist position but I never send my resume until I get a response. The email was fishy when it said something about after "reviewing my resume" and I kind of thought something was up. My email was literally verbatim to what you posted. Thanks for the warning!
#199238 by letticeb01 Mon Apr 28, 2014 1:26 pm
Thank you Scammed Once for posting your email. I JUST received the same email and i should have went with my gut feeling. I have been sending my resumes out for personal assistant positions so i thought it was legit. Before i found this site and your post, i did send them my name, address, and phone number. So if what you said is true, they will be sending me a check etc, and asking me to cash it. But if and when i receive it, im just going to throw it away. I have been scammed like that before and it is not fun. Thank you for the heads up on this email and i know that if they send me something, ill just throw it all in the trash.

Again, thank you and i hope we can spread the word! :D

I applied for the personal assistant job and got the first email and then after a day I got this response, glad I researched this online and then came across this site otherwise I probably would have went and filled it all out. There was also a document attached for me to fill out.

But firstly i will like to know how honest you are and how can i trust you with my funds. I will be sending some payment to you for the first task as i mentioned in my initial email after which i will send you an email with the task to be carried out and instructions. And also confirm the payment can be mailed to the address you provided. And please include an apartment number if required.

Your duties as my assistant will be running personal errands,booking flights and appointments, Handling cash and deposits, receiving calls and attending to clients.

I need answers to these questions.
1. How many hours are you willing to Work per day?
2. How often do you come on the internet ?
3. Payroll Interval... (Weekly or Bi-weekly)?
4. Are you employed at the moment ? .
5. what bank do you bank with?(bank name only)

They just keep changing it up. Sneaky scammers, all they have to do is change 1 letter. Hopewell Holdings Limited is in fact a real company, however, "hopewellsholdinginc.com" does not exist. They've changed the email a bit but its almost exactly like the other example. Also, "sensitive issue on trust"? Riiigght... Glad I googled first! This is the email I received:

hopewellsholdinginc.com does exist. It was registered two weeks ago for one year by a hidden registrant, which is typical of scam domains. Please post the complete headers of the email so that we can kill the domain.

Ok, hello all! I am fresh new to this site. I came by this site because of of Hopewells Holding. I was looking for clerk type jobs on Craigslist. I applied to a Secretary job with an email that included my resume. I received an email a couple of days later. I was already leery of sending a complete stranger my resume ....and that only increased as I read the email. The email seemed too good to be true. So I googled Hopewell Holdings Limited and came across this forum. I am very glad that I decided to research HHL before replying to the email. I am a little worried about them having my resume and email address. ....Does anyone have any advice as to what to do on that? I guess I would just monitor my email and credit report closely? The resume didnt include any financial info. In fact I listed about two jobs I had that may have remotely been considered clerical. (which was another reason I got suspicious.. I have been getting turned down a hell of a lot for clerk work) ..I did have my address, phone, email in the header.....is there anything I can really do though..besides being vigilant of my email and credit reports? Ok, thanks for any advice. Below, I will post the email in full. Its chilling, as its almost verbatim to others who have posted here:

Welcome to Scamwarners kkstephens05,
Since you did not give them any financial information there is not much to worry about. If all that you gave them was your email and physical addresses you may see in increase in spam.
Just ignore all future email and telephone calls from these scammers and they will go away.

If you have any additional questions please ask.

If the seller or shipper asks for money to be sent via Western Union, Money Gram, GreenDot MoneyPak number or mentions Cameroon it is a scam.
