I had received a response from this company in regards to a Customer Service Representative / Admin Assistant ad they had on below is the whole transcript from the 1st email to the last text message. read it from bottom to top

Never heard back from them no text or emails were sent to me since then. (I Sent this to [email protected] )

3/6/12 - emailed [email protected]

The check bounced I am not as stupid as the others you have tried to scam and pull out the $2600 when my bank makes it available. I knew this sounded fishy and glad I trusted my gut in waiting for the check to clear which I had a feeling it wasn't. I will now send everything you sent me and report you to the fraud & scam government department.

3/6/12 12:05 p.m. I texted # 646-504-7946

Check did not clear the bank returned it. Fake check trying to get me to pull out before it clears when the funds are available you must think I'm stupid.

3/5/12 11:28 a.m. text message to my phone from # 646-504-7946

Hi, how are you? just want to know if you heard from your bank, please let me know Cathy

3/5/12 11:59 a.m. I replied

As I told you last time the bank has a hold on it. when the check clears then the funds will be released. I will keep watching to see when it clears. I will email you some questions regarding this transaction later.

3/5/12 - emailed [email protected]

After the check clears I send $1825 + western union fees to the person below what is included in the kit I am to receive? is that for the lap top with the company software? what am I suppose to do with the extra? I am getting $60 an hour for only 10 hours a week? can I work more hours or is that the maximum? when or what date will I get paid and you send me my check is that correct?
