Type of a scam Employment
I applied for a position via Upwork. He excepted my proposal by the name of Michael Hoffman. After messaging for a moment on Upwork I gave him my cell phone number and he texted me filling me in on the position and what the job details entailed. He even sent me an employment agreement form. I also got onto his website which not all of it is accessible. He wants me to order products for his customers and ship them to them. I do this after he sends me money via PayPal which he receives money for these products in the form of cryptocurrency. I have attached messages and text messages to help describe what I am talking about
I applied for a position via Upwork. Sylvia Powell excepted my proposal. After messaging a few times on Upwork, she gave me her cell phone number and she texted me filling me in on the position and what the job details entailed. It was difficult to catch up with her, she was also unable to pick up the call so we had to text only. She said she was going through chemo for cancer and needed help to run her online business. She even sent me an employment agreement form. I was unable to get on to her website/store as she said it was down as her IT guy was making changes for her. She wants me to order products for her customers and ship them to them. I do this after she sends me money via PayPal which she receives money for these products in the form of crypto currency. She would be transferring funds each time there would be an order and those funds would include an additional 3% for my pay each time. The address of the business appears to be a vacant lot at 70 Pine Valley Trail, Hudson, WI 54016.
