Tyko Isaacson Craigslist Ad for Personal Assistant Job,sent 2 BOGUS Moneygram money orders for $925.17 which bounced! Internet
11th of Apr, 2011 by User105612
A foreigner who claims to live in Watsonville,CA named Tyko Isaacson posted an AD on Craigslist in Los Angeles,CA looking for a personal assistant. I emailed to apply for the job,got a response and was told i had been selected,then was sent a false looking application. I did fill part of it out and sent it to get work from home as the job described. The next day after i was emailed back and told an assignment was going to be needed to complete and i would be paid for doing it,without meeting the employer. The following day i had a package FedEx Courier Service overnight sent to my address from sierra madre,california,and then was emailed instructions to cash 2 money orders i had recieved for 925.17 each into my bank account and then wire the rest to an address with the name Robin Wilson Rock Hill,SC 29732 USA saying this person was a electronic shop the employer was buying stuff from. When i tried to cash the MO's the bank told me they would have to hold them and verify for 24 hours,which did save me,i went to western union and told them the story that i was given 150 to pay for the wire transfer and sent 1400 to this unknown person,they adviced me it could be a scam and freaking out,i raced back to BofA to get the MO,which was already in my account undeletable and i couldn't get the MO back which i was thinking was fraud. I called the customer service hotline and reported them immediately in fear i was gonna lose my account! So i waited till the following day,the whole time being messaged by a person using a yahoo ID "OrangeJewell" and txt msg with Tyko Isaacson by phone through his email,i told them before i send anything i'd need to verify the business i'm sending it to with a website and phone contact,they refused to give me any of this info and ordered i withdraw the money and send it Western Union,knowing at this point it was a foreigner scammer (who said he was out of the country but coming back soon) i played along and got as much info as i could,then told them if they can't give me correct info im not sending anything to anyone! They got upset and filed a IC3 report against me saying i had ran off with cash in the amount of 1850USD. I filed a report with consumer fraud online and they emailed me a copy of their report where i got this info to try to worry me. We exchanged negative comments back and forth and then i blocked the email and 4 days later my BofA account shows an IRX transaction against my account for 925.17USD ,one of the two money orders! They claimed to be a work at home job but where actually trying to get me to rush money to an address and also as part of the scam do a survey to get a copy of the reciept and the survey was about the Western Union worker. Please to all that are looking for a job in these troubled times,don't fall for this scam,i never found out where this person was located except they were not in the United States.
