Elite Staffing — Temp Employment Agency Scam
Got a letter from Elite Staffing a temp agency along with a check for $2974.00. Apparently they said I have been selected as a CSR Evaluator. My assignment is to pose as a potential customer at the assigned establishments and evaluate the effectiveness, efficiency and quality of service rendered. It instructs me to deposit the money into my checking account and then immediatly give them a call for further instructions.
The letter also says Im suppose to make a purchase of $50 at Wal-mart and then do an evaulation of the service. It then says to go to Westtern Union and transfer $2660.00 of the money somewhere which will coast -/+ $60. The remaining $200.00 is for me to keep. The letter came in a hand writen envelope with no return address. The letter also instructed me to call them once the check was deposited for your assignment. So I call, a guy answers the phone.
He told me a little bit about the company. He also told to call him back after the check had been deposited into your account. He did tell me that his company has been in business for over thirty years and he also provided a website, www.elitestaffing.com. I dont know, this just doesnt sound right. Could this be a company that is try to take advantage of people who are looking for work? Im staying clear, getting rid of the check.
