Received an official priority mail envelop with a letter and a check for $2350.00. The letter had the BBB logo and logos from McDonald's and MoneyGram. The letter had very distinct directions on what was needed to be done and what the evaluation should include with an email address to send the report. I deposited the check and was waiting for it to clear the bank prior to removing any funds to do the assignment. the bank did some investigation on the check and realized it was fraudulent. They closed all of my accounts without notice.Show more
I inquired about a job on Craigslist to repost ads for another person (Julie dykes). Well I reposted 3 ads of hers and they all got flagged immediately. She said it was due to having a wrong cell phone number on the account blah blah blah. Well so she said she would send me a check of $1,200 and she did! So as she asked me to I went and deposited the check and then sent her the $800 out of the $1,200 she said she would reimburse me once she bought the decals that were supposed to go on my car (advertising the same thing that was on Craigslist) and since then I have not heard a word from her. Numbers are disconnected and I can't reach anybody. Well so ultimately somehow she found out my bank account info and wiped it clean.Show more

I was asked to go to one of three different fast food restaurant, McDee Starbucks or Subway and evaluate the place then email this company and give my opinion of the place specifically not to tell store what i was doing there.
Then they wanted me to send 3 different people who live in Washington state three different amounts to be sent only at either 3 different Walmarts with MoneyGram services or any other 3 MoneyGram sites they stressed to use 3 different places .Well just didnt sound right so i called the bank the check was drawn on. the auto verfy funds said the funds were available but it still seemed too good so i called the bank (Santander bank N.A) and talked to a customer rep i told her what i had and ckecked the account out well yes there was funds available But she said the account was owned by several people and she needed to notify her supervisor of this situation supervisor highly recommended i Do Not cash this check. The supervisor the was immediately going to notify there fraud dept.
After i was supposed to do the moneygram transfers I was told to email a Jeff Mongold at. [email protected] or [email protected]
