I was contacted via an ad I had placed on Craigslist, looking for work to do from home, I got an offer to become a payroll clerk, working from home through this company ABM Industries http://investor.abm.com/contactus.cfm, turns out this company is a consulting firm, that knew nothing of this, once I called and confirmed, after I had already worked for about a month without no pay, to the tune of over $1500.00, The woman who gave me the position claimed to be this VP of this company, she was pretending to be a lady by the name of Angelique Carbo, her supervisor recently contacted me as well, apologizing to me for not receiving payment, making some excuse as to they were robbed by their accountant, if you receive emails from the following [email protected], and Angelique Carbo [email protected] and Michael O"leary Assistant Mgr, Florida Branch at [email protected], these are both frauds, they are using alias names and are frauding people, somehow they send cashier checks to certain people every week via people like me, I process the checks, place them in USPS envelopes, she sends me the labels and pdf checks and I mail them out, I was totally taken advantage of, I recently lost my job of over 5yrs, I had two major surgeries, I lost my vehicle and had no means of getting back and forth to a regular job, I feel completely stupid why aren't these scams being shut down and people being arrested. With all the technology today, its not that hard to track down a [hone and Ip address

I received a text message from this number regarding my resume posted on craigslist. Introduced her/his self as Angelique Carbo the HR manager over at ABM Industries Company. Conducted an online interview vie yahoo messanger: [email protected] once we completed the interview I was advised i scored an 85% and I had the job, however, i was asked to forward all my personal information, full name, address etc., I did not do as asked instead I contacted ABM directly so that can verify Mrs. Carbo before hand. I have not received a response from ABM Industries. I am unsure of this and do not trust it. I was contacted once again today 1/29/15 and asked to go to yahoo immediately. I began to ask questions and I asked if someone from ABM Industries could call me instead and provide verification.

I just received the same. I received an email asking to go on yahoo messenger and add Angelique Carbo. I went through the same drill as above. I searched on LinkedIn and I happen to have numerous connections with ABM Industries, Angelique Carbo is not one of them, and she has no picture either. Google and all other searches have a pic, and bio's etc. Sounds like a scam. I asked her if she works in the NYC office and she said Florida. She is on tons of HR Sites, Etc. and lots of stuff on google search. I will wait to see if I receive an email and then reach out to my connections for verification. I specifically asked WHAT OFFICE would I specifically work from, as I continued to probe for information as there are so many frauds and scammers. I indicated I DO NOT WANT A WORK FROM HOME. She said training is 2 weeks online, will send check for software to utilize, etc. Had this happen so many times I cannot express my anger. Ridiculous. I am reaching out to my connections today. Unfortunately she did not have a phone number, I found this site via google. I use 1-800-NOTES, so glad I was able to retrieve a phone number. Thank you!

Thank you for your warning! I was interviewing for a Data Entry work from home job through UpWork and had finished the interview when they wanted to deposit money into my account via mobile upload to pay for software and computer equipment i would need to purchase. I then got a bit suspicious when he asked me my deposit limit and looked online to see if any scam reports were issued. Below is our conversation in case it helps anyone else in the future.

*******Job Duties

*******Data processors spend the majority of their day inputting various company data into computers. This data can originate on paper forms, such as invoices, or it could be electronic, such as email. The data processor first checks the data contained in the form to make sure it's complete and that required information isn't missing. She then enters this data into a system. This can take the form of a text document such as Microsoft Word, a database system like Microsoft Access, an online web management system such as Salesforce, or propriety software specifically written for the organization
