I was searching for a job on indeed.com. One day, I received a text from Pillars international insurance advisor LLC. With a link to sign up for a position via indeed where I buy items and ship it to orphanage homes. I applied for the position. A person from pillars emailed me stating that I will receive a check in the mail and I will be given a tracking number after they ship it. I received the check for $4360.90. I emailed the person and let them know I received the check. They told me to deposit the check and let them know when the funds will be available. I deposited the check on the same day I received it, which was Saturday, and I was told the funds will be available on Tuesday. On Tuesday, I emailed them letting them know the funds are available. They said okay, things have changed because the cost to ship the items will cost too much so instead, they are going to send money to the orphanage. My boyfriend had signed up for the same exact job too and he received the check as well. We were confused about how the $4360.90 was to be distributed among our self and the orphanage because pillars kept changing the amounts. The last response of how much to withdraw for the orphanage was sent to my boyfriend but I went along with that amount since it was the most recent. The amount they said to withdraw was $4000. I did so. Then they sent me a wells Fargo account number, name, and location (Christopher H*****, Forest state, VA). They told me to deposit the $4000 into the wells Fargo account. I did that. Then, the next morning I got an alert from my bank that my account is overdrawn. I logged into my bank account and seen that the check of $4360.90 was returned and I had a negative balance of more than 1 thousand dollars. I called chase hotline and asked what’s going on with my account and why its overdrawn. They asked me a few questions like where did I get the check of $4360.90 from and I explained everything to them. They told me that it was most likely a scam. I texted the person that I’ve been communicating with about the job with pillars and told them that the check was returned and if they are going to fix it. They said their company account was hacked and all the money was taken out from the account and to fix it, I will have to send $300. They asked if I have the $300, I said it’s in my account and I can’t withdraw it because my account is overdrawn and has a negative balance. They were telling me that I need to get the $300 that I must find a way and get it and send it to them. I then realized it really was a scam. I said okay I have the $300, to see what they’ll tell me to do with it. They said okay go to Walmart and do a Walmart transfer and they gave me a name and location for the Walmart transfer (Wilton j** c***, El Paso, TX 79901). The name and location were different than the wells Fargo account. The wells Fargo account was in Virginia and the Walmart was in Texas. I went to chase bank and talked to them about this situation. Unfortunately, there was nothing they could do to get me back the $4000 and I had to pay out the negative balance in my account. Chase bank told me to file a police report, so I did so. I wrote the report and then a couple of days later I printed out all the emails, text messages, pictures of check, deposit slips, withdrawal slips, and receipts. I went back to the police department and turned in those papers to them, they said they will hand it over to the detectives. Eventually, after I realized it was a scam and I re-read all the text messages and emails, I realized the person wasn’t even using proper English. I started to think that they can be in a different country. Also, my sister googled pillars international insurance advisors LLC. to see what the company is about. It was about real marketing and financial stuff, nothing about donating to orphanages. I figured the person who scammed me, probably used pillars company name so if people search it on the web they will believe it’s a real company and not a scam. When actually it’s a scammer using pillars company name. I ended up losing $4000 from this scam and it was literally all the money I had. I am 18 years old and I am in my second year of college. The money I lost, was money I saved to pay for college. I will appreciate any assistance in getting back the money I lost and catching the person who scammed me.
