They contacted my girlfriend through e-mail because she had a resume on jobs.com They offered her a position as a Payment Officer / Bookkeeper for the Coca-Cola company.They had used the actual Letter Head from the Coca-Cola company.
She accepted the position and a few weeks later she recieved a Cashiers Cheque made Payable to her from Wells Fargo Bank.
She put it into our bank account and they placed a 5 day hold on it. Today is when the cheque was supposed to clear so I went to withdraw the money to send back to them. The cheque was for $2666.00 and she was told to keep 10% ($266.00).
When I asked for the money I was taken into the managers office and he had told me that the cheque was Fraudulent.
I did a search on the phone number that he had given my girlfriend to contact him and this is the Page that it brought me too.
He had given her the same number as all of the online scams that were posted on this site.
The number it based out of Halifax Nova Scotia.
My Bank had caught it in time and the cheque is now canceled So be aware there is another scam going around.
The coca-cola company now knows about it aswell as Wells Fargo bank and I hope they find these people and give them what they got comin to them.
