I applied on Careerbuilder for a position as a Newpaper Agent for the company Multimediahaus GmbH, which in turn I received verification that I will receive an assignment to be completed to receive commission from doing so. Then I received an email that stated I will receive a check in the mail that will pay for my services and for me to take out the commission from the check as well.
So I receive the check the following week for an amount of $1399.00. I received an email with instructions on what to do with the check. I went into my bank and cashed the check. I western union $1199.00 to the ALEX JDAN in Toronto, Ontario and my commission was $200.00. A week later I checked my bank balance and all my money was gone. I had $1100 in savings and 300 in checking.
The bank said I could not get my money back, because the fraud was commited outside the bank. I filed a police report and a fraud report with Western Union. This is a terrible scam placed thru a very professional job seeker search engine as Careerbuilder. 1300 pay not be a lot to you, but it was my long worked hard money and that was a huge lost for me. IF ANYONE HAS ANY INFORMATION IN REGRADS TO THIS, PLEASE HELP. I WOULD LIKE TO GET MY MONEY BACK AND CATCH THE PERSON BEHIND THIS SCAM.
