Victim Location 75763
Type of a scam Employment
She is listed with Snag-a-Job. Nicholas Nelson emailed an employment contract that requires her acquiring a new apple watch and iphone (with proof). Once she proves this, she was to send these two items to them so they could program the information she needed to complete her job (payroll clerk). She had reservations after talking with Nelson today after she asked questions. He said he couldn’t give her more information until she went through training. She did pay $407 for the new phone & watch they required & the items are still in her possession.
The phone# on the contract was answered by Nicholas Nelson just answering with "hello" not a business name. He has a foreign accent and when she asked about the job, he hung up on her and immediately began messaging her on "hangout" asking if she had just called him. She thought the job she was applying for was local in Frankston; however, he assured her "she had nothing to worry about it…just because your husband doubts this."
