This is not a real company. Just thought everyone should know.

The website they've created only looks legitimate but once you read it, none of the copy makes sense. Beware of this one.

Just in case you want to see how fun talking to a scammer is, here's a transcript of my private message conversation with the scammer (whose chatting under the guise of "Mrs. Martha Evans" at [email protected])... little does "Martha" know that I'm looking to get out of the paper supply business and move to Texas with my husband Jim... :lol: :

Actually the website they had you look at is a legitimate company in India . They referred to it in their scam in an attempt to give it credibility . Your conversation log showed the same scam jargon as many other money mule scams posted here .

BTW . Please remove any personally identifiable information about you from your post . Edit it out .

I did this same exact thing...I knew this "company" was a scam from all of the red flags in their initial email. The name of the so called company was devero Inc but the email address was [email protected] name "clien paka" all in lowercase....said feel free to send any questions to [email protected] and their Google hangout account is [email protected]. here is a snippet just so that people will be able to find out this is a scam, should they ever google her name.

" Before we proceed further  I would love to know more about you. That would help where to categorize you and how best to interview you. I am Mrs Melissa Holey   ,age 47. The personnel manager of  DeVero Inc Please introduce yourself indicate your location?"

I hope this helps someone in their Google search before it's too late. It's so sad but there are never any ends to crimes or bad things like this that happen through the internet. Stay safe people
