Total money lost $5,000
Type of a scam Employment
Job listed on Indeed for a CSR for a reputable company in Hickory. I knew this company I trusted this company. I got the job, it was a remote pt position and the lady sent me a check to pay for equipment that I would need to do the job. At first it seemed a little odd and I checked on the company’s a real job and it was listed. So I deposited the check and she told who to send the money to. My bank didn’t hold the check which was a sizable amount and I could not cover it if it came back NSF. Gave me credit and when the check came back my bank didn’t call me to let me know. They just took the money from me. And I don’t know what to do.

Type of a scam Government Grant
A woman called me today from human services she said she was from human services telling me that I was chosen by the government for a grant worth $7849 and she gave me a number to a person I could call along with a confirmation number they didn’t ask for my social security number they asked me for my bank account number and my routing number they told me that I had to pay $280 for taxes and fees so that they can send me money from another state The number that this phone call originally ended with was a 202-436-9071 and the person I talk to you goes by the name of Christopher Brown he told me to call the business bureau I tried but the offices were closed so I making a report instead I need to find out whether this is legit or not he said he was calling from human resources
