Just saw this exact same posting on Nextdoor.com

The original poster was "LORETTA ZAMBRANO, Richmond" but gave an email address of [email protected] and telephone number 320-392-1034

I emailed and texted and had a conversation almost verbatim of what was posted above. Clearly the same scam. I feel a little put out that I was only offered $900 every two weeks!

I went through the conversation and printed a test check. The bank was Columbia State Bank in Washington, which is legitimate, and the routing number matches.

I think I’m being solicited by a scammer from that Apollo Hospital scam.
I refused to give the person any personal details until they can prove it’s a legitimate work at home position.
She sent me the Apollo Hospital website link so I sent their career page a message asking for verification.
I think this is the scam already listed here, but years earlier and in a different state, because the link may simply open up there website as an overlay to their real page.
How can I verify and help get them the national recognition they truly deserve?

Please post all of the email addresses that they are using, plus the actual text of the email offering you the job and giving details of the job.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

I've been contacted by several people about this scam. I posted on Craigslist looking for bookkeeping clients.

They all contacted me by text message with the following names and numbers:
Adren Flowers 304-699-0592
James 209-837-6817 216-815-4970
George 330-267-9776 859-287-4214

Adren also emailed me from [email protected]

I hope this helps someone!

I wish I had seen this thread before I was stupidly scammed. I saw a job listing in a facebook group and thought I should try for it. I contacted the person and this was the message.

I was scammed hard. I was naive. I had my doubts but I just didn't trust my instincts. I was scammed nearly $6,000. Seriously. All because I thought I would be reimbursed for these gift cards. I would deposit the check and then the next day, they were returned and I was hit with a fee for the check being returned.

This is the phone number: 253-234-7464.

I hope my terrible experience is able to prevent others from avoiding this crap situation.
