Total money lost $1,500
Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
I had applied for an assistant job online. I received an email and text message if I wanted the job and I said yes. Then a few days later they text me again saying that they sent me a check in the mail and my list of errands. I found this weird because we did not discussed anything so I just ignored it because I thought it could be a scam. However, I have been waiting on an unemployment check for 3 months and I received a check for $4980 in which I thought was my unemployment back pay but my bank then told me the check as fraudulent. I was able to cash $1500 of the check. Once my bank told me the check was fraudulent and I put two and two together I assume this check was the fraud job that I had applied for on ineeded.com. Now I owe the bank $1,500 from what I cashed from the check. I haven’t gotten unemployment in 3 months and have a lot of debt and now I have even more debt because of this. I was devastated and cried a lot but I just want people to not get scammed by this person or group of people. People are already struggling with all going on in this world and this just makes things worse.
The pictures below the check came in this usps packet and the check is a copy that my bank provided.
