Hi, dont mean to resurrect an old thread but my wife was sucked into this scam tonight. She spent an hour or so in the interview, the whole time it didnt feel right. So after the 'interview' we started doing some research on the company. The company is legit, however everything sent my wife is the exact copy and paste scam you see here in this thread.

They wanted my wife to open up a Citi bank account, so they could send her a company check for her "supplies". You guys know the rest.

I received the same emails as above. I was also emailed a fraudulent cashier's check drawn from a bank in a town with a population of less than 100. I was already suspicious, but that confirmed it. I made a call to that bank and they have law enforcement working a case. Bank to which money was to be transferred for "purchase of supplies" is also investigating.

I was trying to look up the equipment that I was informed I would have to purchase and this sight came up. I started reading and I am floored. Luckily I am not out anything, I am "supposed" to get a check tomorrow to purchase this equipment and take my first week of pay. The only difference here is the name of the company, which is legit, it went to the BBB to see if there are any complaints, nothing, I even tried looking for an international database like the BBB. Attached is the email.


Roc Oil Company Limited (ROC) is one of Australia's leading independent upstream oil and gas company with a presence in China, South East Asia and Australia. The Company operates across the full range of upstream business activities from exploration and appraisal to development and production delivery.


As an operator with strong industry relationships, including National Oil Companies, ROC has a unique set of competitive advantages - a distinct industry position for a company of its size. There are few other Australian upstream companies of a similar size capable of delivering this full suite of services.


The Company has a workforce of approximately 150, located in offices in China, Australia and Malaysia.


Incorporated in Australia, ROC listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) in 1999.


In April 2014, ROC and Horizon Oil Limited (Horizon) announced a proposed merger of equals. Before the process completed however, Transcendent Resources Limited (a wholly owned subsidiary of Fosun International Limited) (Fosun) submitted an off-market takeover bid for ROC, which the Board considered superior to the proposed merger with Horizon and recommended ROC Shareholders accept the Fosun takeover offer.


The Fosun takeover offer closed in November 2014, with over 90% of Shareholders accepting the offer of $0.69 per ROC share. Fosun subsequently announced in December 2014 its intention to compulsorily acquire the remaining ROC Shares on issue in accordance with the Corporations Act.  


ROC delisted from the ASX in late January 2015, and continues to operate as an upstream oil and gas company under Fosun International Limited.

Could you post the email address? Post the reply-to address if they're different. Others may be searching for the address.

When the check comes, if it comes by US Mail, take it to the Postal Inspection Service, unopened. If it comes by some other courier, take it to that courier's fraud department. Bring printouts of the email.

Do not tell the scammer that you found out it's a scam. Don't tell him anything at all. Leave him wondering if you died.

I have been talking to jenny as well. She has even been sending me checks to deposit into my account. She is a scammer?

DROP THE PHONE! Do not hang up. Drop it on the floor and walk away as if you had died. Do not talk with the scammer ever again. Give her no clue.

Are you two saying this is a scam? I have talked to Jenny and am now talking to someone by the name of Tino Guglielmo, who is supposedly the Personnel Director. I actually have him on the line right now. Have either one of you actually started the work? Does it seem legit?

I did a Google Hangout interview yesterday as well knew it was too good to be true from the very beginning but took it all the way and of course I have a long list of Apple products they need me to set up my home office and he just text me through Hangouts now telling me I will receive the tracking number for my check shortly. I was going to question him why they would send me the money to purchase Goods that actually belong to them to set up my office but now I'm not going to do that I'm going to let the check come and the question I have is exactly who should I turn that check in to.

what really bothers me the email or I'm sorry website they sent me is probably a legitimate company is there a way of informing them I'm going to send screenshots if I can below not sure never used your site before

Welcome to Scamwarners,

Refuse delivery of the package. Tell the delivery person it is a scam and a fake check is inside. Show him/her the emails.

Copy and paste the emails sent to you. Remove your personal information from them prior to submitting.

Do not post a screenshot.

Post the site address they sent you. We will look into it.

bryonwilliams @ scamwarners.com

Please do not tell the scammer he is posted here.
