BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A Boca Raton man says he was scammed by a fake employer on CareerBuilder.Com, and told a story to the Boca Raton Police Department that is worth sharing.
Police say that Salvatore Guasto put his resume on CareerBuilder.Com when he was trying to find a job. Earlier this month, he received a job offer from a London-based company named “Boat Parts.” Here was the catch: the company would send him checks in the mail that he would have to cash.
As a service fee, he could keep ten percent and then send the rest of the money back to the employer by Western Union.
The scam apparently raised a red flag somewhere down the line and Boca Raton police investigated Guasto. However, after reviewing the emails, police declined to file charges against him, saying that he was clearly the victim of someone else’s wrongdoing.
