As I was looking for work, I can across an add that looked applicable to me, so I send them my resume. They got back to me a few days later, inviting me to an interview on google hangouts the next morning.The interview itself seemed fine but after it was over, they said they had to go over my answers to proceed. After about 45 minutes, they told me I was hired and training would start the next day.The next day, the person I was chatting with asked me two questions and answered two questions I had Amongst other things, they told me that while the company was American, they plan to open an office in Canada within 6 months. It took about 50 minutes all in all, because the person had to refer to specific departments in the company for answers. The day after that, we met online again, same time. He asked me to sign the employee contract he’d send me, which I did. I was now an ‘official employee of Equian’. Note that he had so far not asked me for my social insurance number or bank information, other than which bank I am with.A day later, they told me they send me a cheque so I could buy some office supplies. Three days later the cheque arrived. As I was not home, I found it on my front step. It seemed kind of strange to me that they would send me money and then not make me sign for receiving it. I opened the envelope and in it was a rather large cheque ($2,750). It seemed like a lot to me. I also noted that the company on the envelope wasn’t Equian but Forever Green Intl. The company name on the cheque was yet another name: Dreamtec Global Inc. So I had three different company names for this one job I was supposed to have. As soon as I told the persons I got the cheque, he asked me how far away my bank is, where the nearest atm would be, how long it would take for the money to be deposited into my account. I got suspicious after I told him I could deposit it with online banking and he had to talk to the accounting department whether that was acceptible. At this point, I decided to go to the bank to make sure it was legit. My personal bank told me almost right away that it looked like a fraudulent cheque. They contacted the bank on the cheque to ask for information on the company that was on the cheque. As they were waiting to hear back, I went to the bank mentioned on the cheque. They said the bank didn’t know they company and that I could either send the cheque back or rip it up.The police (where we went after all this) informed us that we could make a report online, but that they wouldn’t be able to do much, because that’s just the nature of scammers. As soon as you’re on to them, they change.
