MSXI WorkfromHome / Online FRAUD
I received a call from a potential employer by the name of MSX International. They found me via the unemployment database. I interview with a staff person by the name of Ms. Salinas. This was on 3/18/14 (19th) approx. I completed the online interview with Ms. Salinas, and she stated that I will be receiving an email from my online supervisor regarding my acceptance letter. I received and printed the acceptance letter, signed and returned the same day (Thursday 3/20). Friday 3/21, I received a knock at the door, only to have been given a FEDEX package from the driver. I had no idea what this package was and from who it come from. After, checking online the ID of the check (name, bank name, etc) I placed a call to the number that was on the FEDEX package to see who sent this check which was in the amount of $2650.00. Lady took information over the phone, and stated that she would get back to me. Approx 15 minutes later the lady returned the call, I informed her that I was NOW aware of where the check came from. Not long after delivery I received an online message from my online supervisor Kelvin Smith (email address [protected]@yahoo). He had just asked me if I received a package from FEDEX. I stated yes. He mention that he FAILED to inform me that the check was coming. Mr. Smith proceed to tell me to deposit the check in the bank. Not once did I give this individual any money out of my account (approx $200 of my own money). Check was deposited. Once check had cleared, I was then informed that I was to make a wire transfer through WU. The first transaction was for $1980.50 (including fees) which was on 3/22. I received the WU transfer receipt with the MTCN [protected]. This was for office supplies (work-from-home). On Sunday 3/23 I was contact via email Mr. Smith to wire through WU an additional $490. (Including fees) MTCN [protected] wire transfer. I was asked by Mr. Smith to meet him online Monday morning @ 8:00 am. The last contact (officially) was approx 9:17 am Monday morning, when he told me to hold on for further information. As of today, I haven't had any communications from Mr. Smith. I emailed him informing him that I had received notice that my bank stated that the check that he provided DID NOT clear and the my account was overdrawn for $2232.00 (approx 9:30 am). The bank told me that the check had cleared. Otherwise I would have not withdrawn the funds. Once, I did receive an email approx 11:09 am this morning from Mr. Smith, informing me that another check will be sent out and that I was to take it to may bank and deposit. Well that's not going to happen. I called the actual MSX International, and was able to leave a message for a Renee Thornton (HR) who actually works for the real company and stated to me that these persons or person had been using there company logo to run there FRAUD SCAM. Ms. Thronton with MSX International out of Michigan stated that she will hold onto my name and number to add to the investigation of the work-from-home FRADU scam. I may not get my money back, but its the principal of the matter.
