This guy Reginald Tait says he has hired me as his personal assistant off of Craigslist. He sent me a cashier's check for $2,270. He has my address and phone number/email. That is it. I have not met him in person, have not filled out any paperwork (as most legitimate jobs do), and haven't even done any work for him yet. I do not currently have a bank account and he seemed mostly concerned about me getting an account number to him. Which, even if I did, I wouldn't give it out to this guy. He definitely seems like a scam to me and I wouldn't trust him.
I replied to job posting on Craigslist for admin assistant. Reginald Tait emailed me asking for bank information. I told him I was not comfortable giving that information. He is still emailing me to hire me.
APPLIED FOR A LOCAL JOB ON CRAIGSLIST THEN A GUY NAMED REGINALD TAIT CONTACTED ME AND SAID HE WAS SENDING A CHECK I ADVISED HIM I DIDNT WANT THE CHECK BECAUSE I HAVE NOT COMPLETED ANY WORK DUTIES AND NO REPLY. I RECEIVED THE CHECK TODAY AND CALLED THE BANK TO VERIFY IT THEY SAID IT WAS FAKE AND ADVISED ME TO CONTACT THE POLICE DEPT. I RECEVIED A TEXT FROM HIM ASKING HAVE I RECEIVED THE CHECK I THEN TOLD HIM I DID AND THAT I HAD CALLED THE BANK TO VERIFY IT AND THAT THEY TOLD ME IT WAS A FAKE AND THAT I WAS REPORTING HIM TO THE POLICE AND I HAVENT HEARD ANYTHING ELSE FROM HIM AFTER THAT. THIS IS A SCAM AND I WOULD REPORT ANYTHING THAT DOESNT SEEM RIGHT.
I received a check for 2480 yesterday from Reginald tait and he's texting me. I deposited the check waiting on it to clear. Please advise what do I do? Sounds like a scam to me found the listing on craigslist..
I received a cashier's check for $2,449.00 for an advertisement involving wrapping my car. He is asking me to keep 400 and withdraw the rest to be wired thru western union to a person(supposedly the agent) in Oklahoma. Looks very fishy to me. The texts were from Reginald Tait supposedly a hiring manager!!! December 12, 2013
Scam I replied to a job posting on Craigslist for evening office assistant in Macon, GA area. I got an email from someone call Reginald Tait asking general questions pertaining to being assistance. Then I receive txt from this number. Long story short he mailed me a fake cashier check to my mailing address and request to deposit in my bank. Then the next morning wanted me to go to Walmart to wire someone name Nelis HOwell in Kiev, Ukraine $2000.00 to pay for shipment of artwork. THIS IS A SCAM..
