After wasting a few hours of my time interacting through Text Messages followed by Yahoo Messenger communications, and, unfortunately, giving information about me and my experience in response to an invitation for employment pre-screening, I conducted an online search to find information about the “Software Needed” as described in the job offer. I had never before heard the names of any of the software listed in the exchange after “being hired” through the screening process. That is when I found this Ripoff Scams website, as this was the first search engine “hit” that came up as a result of my inquiry. “LIST OF SOFTWARES: Agilent version A.6.1.1, A.7.1.1 and A.7.1.2 Affymetrix version MAS 5 (5.0, 5.1), GCOS (1.0, 1.1), and dChip 1.3 GenePix version 3.0, 4.1, and 5.0 NimbleScan version 2.1.16 SpotReader version 1.0 Peach Tree version 2018 Premium US Patent Single Users Pack BS 1 Accounting software” I found: ripoffscams.com/r/Christine-Donelly/internet/Christine-Donelly-Christine-Donelly-BH-Lighting-and-general-supplyIncMs-Melissa-Smith-766797 The above entitled Ripoff Scams is over 3 years old. I am here right now to report that the same scam is being perpetrated today using another company website as the anchor for the scam: aactechnologies.com/career/contact-us Reading the Ripoff Scams on Christine Donelly, I was immediately embarassed for I had “fallen” for the same line of questioning. Fortunately, I did not have a bank account number to reveal when asked by “Mr. Rogers” during the close of the interaction. Here is the scammer’s introduction: employmentdesk33:u200e My name is Mr Peter Rogers 63years old and who is the Hiring Maneger of (AAC Technologies Holdings Inc). I would personally like to invite you to become part of our team performing work-from-home jobs we supply. I am located at Sunbury, PA . I would be the one to brief you about the position and the company. Please do not fall for this scam! employmentdesk33:u200e You will receive the check very soon so i want you to be on look out for it,report online as soon as you have it so i can give you further instructions and i will refer you to the vendor you will be purchasing the materials from, do you understand? employmentdesk33:u200e Since we are affiliated with different companies and there some companies that are owing us, the check might be issued out from one of these companies to serve as our refund, is that okay As soon as the check its been issued out to you i will notify you and provide you with the tracking number so you can keep track and know when it will get to you okay Me:u200e Okay. employmentdesk33:u200e Once you receive the check you are needed to have it deposited into your bank account ,Then the funds will be credited and available in your account for cashout the next day morning….employmentdesk33:u200e You are to set up an account by tomorrow morning Me:u200e I will. employmentdesk33:u200e That will be all for today,i need you to get online tomorrow morning 10am your time for more updates okay? Me:u200e Yes. ### The rest of our conversation follows the same script as reported on Ripoff Scamss “Christine Donelly” found at the link mentioned above. What these scammers are attempting to do is to excite the victim into giving out banking information. Then, the checks they send will not be good or valid checks. They will somehow manage to get the unsuspecting victim to buy the software from one of their companies using the victim’s own money. Thank you for this opportunity to warn the Public.
