I then recieved a text from (915)213-4374 | He offered $650/wk and sent me emails with tasks such as: Provide a competatve quote on 15 computers and 5 scanners; compose a list of suggested toys for children 8-12 (for a “Foster Program” he works with); send links of local warehouses for lease with 450-500 sq ft, etc. All very unconcerning tasks. He then stated he would soon need to send me on errands that would require me to make purchases– and so I needed to obtain a Wells Fargo Easy Pay Card so that he could easily transfer funds I would need on a regular basis, and it would also be how my salary would be paid. I was suspicious, but as I had nothing better to do other than the occasional interview, I went ahead and open an easy pay account with Wells Fargo. I asked then what information would be needed to have funds transferred into the account– account and routing number would all that would be needed. | I notified him when I recived my card. He then said he would need: the name the card was under, address, and online login info so that he can track all transactions. I set up my online account as well as a “Third Party” login, that allows the user to view transactions and nothing else. I provided the info to him, and very quickly he complained that he could only view the account. I explained that I did not have enough information about him or the company and did not feel comfortable providing full access to a bank account in my name, dispite there only being the $25 minimum within. I asked for him to provide a picture of his drivers license and business license so I could verify his identity– and I havent heard from him since. | Luckily I had not provided any damaging information, but I wanted to warn other job searchers to beware. The world has become a cruel greedy place.
