welcome to scamwarners, jbijasa22. Sorry to hear you were scammed by this criminal.

what to do depends on a lot of factors. Namely the exact nature of the things you have been doing for this scammer. Do not post the details of what you have been doing here.

the first thing you need to do is drop all contact with the scammer. block his email address(es), phone #(s), and any other means of communication he had with you. Do not even open emails from someone you don't know for the next few weeks.

Then report it to your local authorities. Take all of the paperwork (emails, etc) that you have to prove that you thought you were working a legitimate job with you.

Report it to Western Union as well.

depending on the country you live in, and the systems used to scam you, there are also federal agencies to report it to such as the USA has the IC3, and US Postal Inspector the UK has ActionFraud and Royal Mail, and there is another site called http://econsumer.gov that has about 30 other countries involved within it.

If you have been cashing / depositing checks, notify your bank immediately, and be sure that you have enough funds in your account to make up for all of the bad check fees you will be assessed.

Hello. It's just sad how these people do bad things especially for those who are trying to find a job. I have been a victim of these people good thing I checked their email first before sending the 400 fee they are asking me before starting their so called job. the name Jed and Dex was used with the convo's for the job thru email and hangout. Something else happened but I am just so afraid to mention it here.

After reading this, I was so excited and was looking forward to be working online,
after doing all this instruction, the following day, they emailed:

/hired


=============================================================================
I said to myself I'd go to option B, since NBI clearance can take long, and they need it within 2 days,

ANOTHER thing I've though, shouldn't they be interviewing me first before requiring this things?
and if there's only one option, and if that would be option A then it will seem legit.

but there's a processing fee of 500.00. :yikes: sounds really SCAMMY.



AND THANK GOD I GOOGLED "Western Union via contractor’s collection
officer (CO)" and found this forum!

THANK YOU ALL FOR SHARING YOUR EXPERIENCES, LET"S DO SOMETHING TO GET THESE
SCAMMERS BEHIND BARS!



I believe I have been a victim of identity theft. How can I clear my name? :twisted: :evil: :yikes:


Hi, I was really shock after seing my name, I was really hurt because I believe I have been a victim of identity theft. How can I clear my name?

Here's what happen, I received an email from a certain stranger few years ago that I qualify for a Manager position for a field work or homebased job, I was hesitant but I tried, so the person is asking for my updated resume/cv application letter, any government I.D for them to consider my application, after lots of replies the person is asking for money from me for them to consider me with the job. Wait!!! Say what? They offer me a job and then theyre asking me to pay something for the activation of my application blah blah, it smells fishy, I know so I responded that I am no longer interested, and havent received any reply or email since then. And then I was terrified seing my name in here!!!! I believe I have been a victim of identity theft. How can I clear my name? :(

lesson learn, never ever trust email from somebody you don't know asking for your government ID's resumes etc. in exchange for a job that is non existing - Mary Ann Declaros here

That was in 2013. If nothing identity-theft-like has happened in the interim (such as someone else opening an account in your name, or you getting bills for things you didn't buy), then most likely the scammer just found your name somewhere and didn't find anything else about you.

If, however, you sent the scammer a scan of your passport, you probably want to get a new one. Scammers use passport scans to pretend to be someone, often editing the name or the picture. Also set up a Google Alert.
