I was notified of a job position through LinkedIn and I accepted the job offer after the online interview was conducted. It was a customer service position and the company name is VSB Energy Group. I was told through texting on Hangouts about the company and the benefits the job came with. I was told for the month of February 2020 I will be working remotely from home until I start my job position in the office once everything is good to go with the building. I said ok I was told to complete reports daily except for the past Friday. I completed reports daily and received feedback from people in the department forwarded to my email on a job well done on completing reports to their standards. Today February 11th I was told that I will receive a check through mail by FEDEX and I received the check today and was told to Deposit the check. I went into Bank of America…the Bank I conduct business with and handed the teller the check and was told that it wasn’t legit and it’s a scam. I was in shock and disbelief for the moment and told her this can’t be correct and the manager came over and explained to me the facts about scammers. I honestly thought this was a legitimate company. This company headquarters is in Germany and Cleveland Ohio. I have given this so called company a copy of my Social security number and Drivers license. I really want this person to go to prison. This person has wasted my time and energy and could potentially still my identity.
