I almost fell into this. it seemed too good to be true. he texted me earlier today with all the details. i received a check for 3,200 and deposited it into my bank account. i was still really sketched out so i did research and this site came up. after reading into it i called my bank right away and told them what happened. i also saved a copy of everything he sent me, checks, emails, text. i told him id be contacting the police and the FBI asap which is exactly what i plan on doing. he never answered me back

heres his IP address: X-Originating-IP: [209.85.217.173]

I hope this can help someone avoid this ridiculous scam

The same exact thing happened to me. thankfully I googled the name they wanted me to send the cashed $ to : Kayla Cooper
2100 Wooodward Ave
Detroit, MI
I was connacted with basically the same song and dance although I was contacted at least 7/8 x by three different men claiming to be with the same company. Johnson Hayes, Harrison Martinez and Joe Shenenman. Instant flags went off but I was assured everything was legit. I glad I had the insight to google Kayla Cooper or I would probaly of cashed the check. Beware if you think its a scam it most probably is. Mine also began with a job on craigslist which I responded to. that is how they got my name in the first place. Hope this prevents someone else from falling into this same scam.

Welcome to ScamWarners paul86. That is indeed a scam. The scammer would be sending you checks from other victims and have you "launder" them through your bank account by sending the money to him by Western Union.

This may seem okay, but eventually the authorities will become involved and you would be the one the police could find. I trust you have stopped all communication with this scammer.

Please post up the email address the scammer used to communicate with you. Thank you for posting this for others to see.

I got the same email from peter Jacob with this email [email protected] I knew it seemed fishy and flags were going up so i found this site and glad i did. I actually asked the guy to call me directly to see if he would or just hide behind a computer. Im glad i found this site bc I wouldnt want to be involved in anything unjust tracing back to my accounts and thats why I found it weird that they want to use my personal account and not there own business account.

Craigslist job title was "Appointment Setter $16/hr."
In the description it said they sold security systems and you would be answering phones and setting appointments. No selling was involved. Hours would be Monday to Friday 9-5.
So, I replied with my resume and got this response back at 12:43 am.

Hello,

I'm looking for someone that can be trusted and reliable to work very well with good understanding as my Personal Assistant.This position I a 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:

Duties and Requirements:

*Scheduling programmer's, flights and keeping me up-to-date with them.
*Handling and monitoring some of my financial activities.
*Processing weekly check payment.
*Filing, Faxing, Creating and sending out letters, scanning documents, some personal assistant duties for owners, and many other
*Managing expenses and invoices

Basic wage is $600 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 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:

FULL NAMES:
ADDRESS:
CITY:
STATE:
ZIP CODE:
HOME PHONE #:
MOBILE PHONE#:
SEX:
EMAIL ADDRESS:
PRESENT JOB:
Nationality: ___________________________
Current Job: ____________________________

Are you eligible to work in the United States? Yes ____ No_____
If you are underage 18, do you have an employment/age certificate? Yes ___ No ___
How often do you check your email: ______________
Days/Hours Available: Hours Available: from _______ to ______
What date are you available to start work? ________________
If you're interested you can e-mail me back for more information about the job.

Thanks in anticipation of your prompt response.
Yours Sincerely,

Anthony.
______________________________________________

I thought it sounded kind of fishy so I figured I'd do some research on the internet. First of all he didn't give a company name. Secondly, he had most of the information he asked for at the very top of my resume. He emailed me back, so obviously he already had my email address. And he just signed it "Anthony" which professional companies would sign full name, job title, and possibly company name.

So, heads up for people on this one. The ad has already been removed from my local listings on Craigslist. I would have flagged it if it were still there.
Thanks for your everyone's post on this scammer.

OMG! I am so glad that I found this website.

I just sent my information two days ago for this guy Peter Jacob.

When he replied and said that I got the job, I started my research and he sent me the same email that everybody posted in this page.

I am afraid and I don't know what to do, I guess I am going to block his email address.

I found the add on craiglist, Baltimore.

Any advice? I don't know what to do

Hello marsun,

There is nothing you can do to undo what you sent to the scammer. If you gave your name and address to the scammer, there is nothing to really worry about. The scammer may send you a check. That check will actually be a forged check. Do not deposit anything you receive from the scammer or any other anonymous source into your bank account.

If you gave other identity information like your passport or social security number or banking information, then you need to contact the issuing authority or your bank and let them know you have given your information to a scammer.

I am kind of guessing what information you gave to the scammer. If you can tell more specifics, we can respond in a specific manner.
