Hello friends,
Unfortunately I fell for this and lost a lot so I just want others to be aware.

"Terra Transportation" found my resume on a job board and call me to see if I was still looking to move careers. I said yes and filled out an application. Had 2 long phone interviews with another one to be set up next week. I did all the "exercises" in their "training" program only to make it to the next step which they called a "practical project". I would get purchase random equipment for the office with my credit card. The setup they used was that they gave me a bank account, connected to the company and I would pay their funds onto my card.(i shouldve listened to my gut and ran but i had a really bad moment) The first two transactions were fine then they asked for another one, they said someone else couldnt complete it which made me really sick to my stomach because it isnt hard. I told them no i couldnt do the third transaction because id need more money which they said that fine, just transfer the funds from the account and go from there. I was very skeptical about everything now, and my gut ended up being right. They "reclaimed" all previous payments from their bank account and i am left with nothing. So be weary, do your research and dont let the jerks get you down. here are some emails and headers for reference. and I apologize if this is to long, first time here.

Good afternoon Mr.

How are you today?
My name is Gerard Colby, and I'm the Senior Project Manager at Terra Transp=
I am here to guide you through the last, most complicated and most impor=
stage of our hiring process, after which we will finally be able to welcome=
to our team. I=92m very pleased to tell you that you have passed our securi=
ty and
financial verification process.

Before we go any further, I will send you a detailed description of the =
part of the process. It=92s important that you read it very carefully, mak=
e sure
that you fully understand it (if you have any questions, don=92t hesitate t=
o ask)
and then get back to me to confirm that you are in full agreement with all=
terms and conditions and other requirements.

In the meantime, we=92ll be sending you all the standard training materia=
ls and
assigning you some trial projects. Our HR managers, will be sending you=
training materials and I=92ll be guide you through the first couple of pro=

The trial projects will take place over a three-week period.
For those three weeks your salary will remain the same as it was for your i=
training, position ($3000/month) + commission.

You will receive an iPhone as soon as you get your first payment.
You will receive a commission for the project.
One month later you can look forward to receiving MacBook Pro in return
for your efforts.

One of your main duties will be to locate and order equipment required
by our company. This will include all kinds of office equipment from
complex optical, photo and video equipment to computer-related devices
such as monitors, scanners and printers, smartphones, laptops and etc.
First of all I'll send you a list of the items we need, then it=92s your
job to seek out the best seller and negotiate for the best price and
the timeliest delivery possible.
Financial Flow:
We'll give you access to our corporate bank account. And for the first
two weeks you will be able to provide payments from our account to any
of yours credit card and use it to open deposit line with our supplier.
I have attached pdf file with explanation of that process.

Please review the attachments and make sure you clearly understand:
"Current balance", "Credit limit" and "Available credit".

Please note:
1. You won't have to involve any money of your own.
2. You won't have to share any sensitive information (account or ssn number=
s) for this project.
3. You receive deposit to your credit card from our bank account BEFORE you=
purchase any equipment.

From the material sent, it appears that our bank account is to be
enrolled on your local system as the source for payment of credit card
bills. To enroll bank account you will need our account number and
routing number. The sequence is then for you to pay your current
balance with funds from the company bank account. That operation will
bring your balance to 0. As soon as it posts you can use it for any
project purposes. That method of payment is only for trial period.
In a three weeks you will receive a corporate credit card.

If everything goes according our plan then tomorrow you will receive your f=
irst commission.
Please confirm that process is clear or please forward me your questions.
Awaiting on your soonest reply.

Best regards,
Mr. Gerard B. Colby

Learn what a scam is and how to protect yourself

I also fell for this scam. It was under the company name National Transportation Network Company. I am out $7000+ because I didn’t trust my instincts that it was too good to be true. It’s a very elaborate scam. Contact information was mostly from a David Taylor, Human Resources: 347-758-9327
National Transportation Network Co., LLC.
1745 Broadway, New York, NY 10010. The website is nationaltn.com.

I’m now filling out a form to submit to the US Attorney General that reports the scam. I’m not very optimistic about anything coming of it.
