When You Take a Job and Get Scammed

Thanks for posting Kim’s story. It was a little traumatizing to read as my spouse had a fraud/scam-y work experience a couple years ago. It wasn’t nearly as bizarre (no photoshopping wire transfers), but he was told he would be salary and then after he started they changed him to a contract position and said that while he was in training he would not be paid as he wouldn’t be doing the level of work stipulated in his contract. That was a major red flag and he quit after a week. He just keeps it off his resume and found a great position a month later fortunately. It’s scary but I think if they’d been willing to pay him at all he might have stayed out of loyalty and desperation like some of Kim’s co-workers.
