Here is another case in point. Totally bogus email. Notice below as you read through the drivel written up by a scammer that says and I quote, "We do not need access to your bank accounts. This is information that you can see at any check and only let us to send ACH and Wire transfers to this accounts."
That's sort of cute. They may not need access to my bank account to complete the duties of the job...we ummm, just need your routing number and account number found at the bottom of your check. Oh and yeah, this company is legitimate. They will only use this information to send ACH and wire transfers to this account.
Those in the know from prior banking backgrounds should know that anyone that can put money into an account with an ACH or wire transfer can just as easily take money out of the same account without any notice due to anyone. It could happen any time.
So it's still a fraud and despite the somewhat creative 559 area code in California? I wonder if we could turn that number over to the state of California legal or scam group to have it investigated?
That might be something to consider.
I just remembered I heard from Julie Matthews in the past. She never responded to my emails inquiring about this company further. Safely I did send her emails from a spam email account and not a valued email account.
While we are picking apart the creative and exciting email text, I just love this part of the email below as well about illegal activity.
"Note: Actions depicted below, are authorized by Our Company, and therefore sustain legitimacy status. Our venerable organization doesn't condone or incite improper or out of border incentives, which may contradict to federal law."
I'm out to see if I can find out more information on this scam.
In the mean time, please beware of the scam like this below:
