Just a quick FYI - it seems that they have moved on to, where I had an encounter with them. Same M.O., same "interview" questions, verbatim. Same promised salary and benefits (including a car and a house!). I repeatedly asked for them to email me an employment agreement (if they were legit, the email would come from the Merrill Lynch email address), and was repeatedly ignored. In this case, they actually went so far as to impersonate an actual ML employee - not just an employee, but the vice president of the company, no less! I kept trying to trip them up, but they stuck to their guns. The "interview" even contained questions that seemed like something a real financial institution would ask - very technical, detailed questions. But I knew for sure it was a scam when they asked for my A/S/L and bank info. Scammers are getting smarter, so we need to be vigilant in what we disclose online.

Be careful, and remember - a large financial institution will not hire you on the spot via instant messaging without even doing a background/credit check. If it seems too good to be true... well, you know how that goes. Who has ever heard of a data entry clerk making 70K a year, plus a bonus car AND a house, anyway??? Not cool, these people. Not cool at all.

This is EXACTLY the same script they used for my "interview," but my "interviewer" had the testicular fortitude to claim that he was Michael Law - the VICE PRESIDENT of Merrill Lynch! Even using Mr. Law's picture as his/her own on the Yahoo profile. (I googled Michael Law & Merrill Lynch, and there were tons of hits all proving that Mr. Law does, in fact, work for ML).

I was contacted by "Michael Law" on Freelancer about the supposed data entry position, all the while, in the back of my head, wondering why a Fortune 100 company would be using a freelancing website to hire anyone. Anyway...

I bailed as soon as they asked me what bank I use. "You know what, I don't think this is the right job for me. Thank you, anyway." *disconnect from Yahoo, delete Yahoo Messenger account, send report and screenshots to to report the scam being perpetrated on their site.*

melissa.hrdesk: Presently, we are updating our webpage to include a section specifically designed for telecommuting employees. after then once we are done updating our website a user and pass to our website will be given to you including an up link to our server.

We do not want any of our employees to work using their personal items or spend a dime in purchasing any of their working materials, so we decided to provide all the necessary equipment needed to make all our employees productive in all their respective positions.
aacameron444: Very nice.
melissa.hrdesk: At Genzyme Corporation, we believe that the customer is the backbone of any organisational structure and the boss of any active business. The main pillar holding any business is the customer and if displeased by your services can decide to move elsewhere. But first and foremost, satisfying the internal customers (Employees) will greatly boost our demands toward a good and successful service between both parties.
aacameron444: Great.
melissa.hrdesk: You will be provided with the following office equipments below for the set up of your Online mini office at home:

All in one printer,scanner and fax machine
Mini office stationaries

Fellowes Micro-shred Confetti-cut paper shredder

Data Entry/Accounting softwares.

All at no cost to you.
aacameron444: Wow, ok!

Genzyme recognizes that members of the U.S. military community are highly skilled, motivated and hard working. In an effort to support this community, Genzyme joined forces in 2012 with the U.S. Departments of Defense, Labor and Veterans Affairs to provide rewarding and challenging career opportunities in our online positions and distribution centers across the nation for current and former members of America's military.
melissa.hrdesk: So all employees employed during this exercise will benefit from the office equipment we are issuing to veterans.

aacameron444: Sounds good.
melissa.hrdesk: The company will be sending you a check which you will be using to purchase the needed software's and mini office equipments. These software's would have to be purchased from the company's certified vendor(Primal-Tech Global Services). Reason: The reason why you will be mailed a check is that since you can't come up with the payment, the company will be providing you with the funds which you will be using to get the software's. Also most of the equipments you will be getting from the vendor are tailor made. Therefore, It is meant and designed for the company alone.
aacameron444: Ok
melissa.hrdesk: Another reason why the company is sending the funds for the Mini office equipments is due to the fact that the company wants this to stand as a test of trust and also we want to know how good you can handle funds placed in your trust or care...

The company don't issue the check out to the vendor because the payment would have to come from our employees and also to enable them verify the location and alternate shipping address. The software vendor(Primal-Tech Global Services) will be responsible for installing the software including any updates and patches. they will also need to perform manual data backups and secure the data to meet HIPAA standards. We deal with clients in the healthcare sectors, insurance sector, banks and business organizations e.t.c

melissa.hrdesk: Are you comfortable with all i have said, do you have a checking account? and should the check be sent to you? and are you very reliable with company funds?

aacameron444: Yes
melissa.hrdesk: As soon as the cheque is issued out to you via FedEx/USPS i will notify you and provide you with the tracking number so you can keep track and know when it will get to you...Okay
aacameron444: Sounds good.
melissa.hrdesk: The company will be sending you a check of $3960.89 which you will be using to purchase the needed software's and mini office equipments. Once you receive the check you are needed to have it deposited to your bank account via ATM machine nearest to you or ONLINE,Then the funds will be credited and available in your account for cashout next day(within 24hours).

aacameron444: Yes
melissa.hrdesk: We need to understand the customers problems in other to provide a panacea. And to fully address the issues of the "External Customers", that of the "Internal Customers" should also be addressed and put into consideration. Poorly treated employees treat customers just as poorly.

The number 646-543-7729 is a voip connection.

A Google search shows it coming up with a large number of job offers under the name of many different companies.

The example here is rather shocking on the Hire Heroes USA website

in the name of Proctor & Gamble

another one at Christian Job here

in the name of AMETEK Inc

another one on Hire Veterans

also in the name of AMETEK Inc

and for a change one on Dynamic Jobs

in the name of Highmark Intl

Highmark Intl - Pittsburgh, PA, United States

Thank you so much for posting the texts of your dialogue with these scammers! I was able to identify the punks by pasting the dialogue from them to google and it hit your page. Saved me a lot of headache and embarrassment...

Yeah they're still going with their scam. I applied to a receptionist position for Merill Lynch. I received an email from an Elizabeth Gibbs offering me the job. I had to go on google hangout to speak with Arthur Klein, in which he told me the job was for Mount Sinai Health Systems. He told me he would send a check and wanted me on there at 8am tomorrow. I called him out and told him I found forums where people were scammed and guess what? HE BLOCKED ME. Lol. Not tricking this girl. 8)

So not sure if the subject is active, but I receive what I believe to be an attempt for a scam. Now I say attempt cuz all they got from me are my personal information, phone number, and email address. They are now moved to the Whatsup app whit this phone number +1 (641) 860-4560, which is registered in Iowa. I was given the same mamo that I read here someone posted five years ago. Now I know they can't use any of my info cuz I live in a small country in Europe, and they didn't get my bank information, even if they did its all empty ( no money ). I was approached by a woman on FB, saying that she have a Data entry job open and that should I contact Mr. Ridley on the same number. After the so-called interview, I passed whit 80% and after a while they sad that my county of a resident was the problem and they even offered me to move to the States, when I asked about the status of my application they sad we will be hearing again in 2 days but nothing. So I did little research and found this forum.
Like I said not sure if the subject is still active but I wanted to give everyone a heads up that the scam still exists.
Tnx all
