Angel Henderson ([email protected])
you need to be waiting for your messages and be fast in replying back to keep the smooth conversation between us, there are other candidates online[This whole next section is a copy and paste of something they sent to me the day before. I guess he forgot which part of the scam he was at with me. Ah, the burdens a scammer has to carry… poor things.] this is the newest online screening that makes things easy for every applicant, no needs for ups and down, you can easily access your applications and Hiring process, this helps Mothers with children at home and also gives room for working class applicant to participate as they might be at their current job, so with this process they will easily access their new Jobyou only need to type and send and pay attention to our discussion on here following all the instructions given to you on getting started, hope you’re now ready for the online Job briefing and interview ?


ME: OK. I can do that.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
sorry that is not for you
it’s for a new candidate
we’ve done that already [I guess he caught his mistake!]


ME: Oh, thank you. I thought that looked familiar.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
okay
you need to fill out the employment form now, what email address do you want the form to be sent to?


ME: [email protected]


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
okay, hold online


ME: I have been watching my inbox. Did you send me a document?
I just want to make sure I don’t miss it. [I want to appear anxious to get started! Make them think they’ve got a hot one on the hook! ;-)]


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
hold
The form has been sent to you, please check your email box now and let me know once received


ME: I have received it.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
okay
so that will be all for now, make sure you keep in touch with me and be replying back to my messages once you receive them, i would contact you later on here for updates or let you know if we are done for the day. Text messages would also be sent to you for notifications in-case you’re not on hangouts.

we’ll do this till you get the Equipment and select your own hours.. Understood ? [Is it just me or does the “understood?” comment sound like it’s coming from my mother instead of my future employer? If you don’t eat your broccoli, no cake! Understood?!]


ME: Yes.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
work on the form now and drop a message to notify me on here once completed and returned okay?


ME: OKThank you.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
welcome [He always says “welcome” not “you’re welcome” – as though I am being greeted rather than acknowledging my thanks]

Wed, 9:26 AM


ME: Hi Angel. I have completed and returned my form! [The form was a Microsoft Word document. I had typed in my responses and sent as an email attachment. Questions

Wed, 9:42 AM
Angel Henderson ([email protected])
okay, hold online while i look for it


ME: ok

Angel Henderson ([email protected])
you need to print out the form and use a blue pen to fill them out and then scan and email them back to me
you can do that at staples or kinkos


ME: OK I will do that
I may not be able to get it back to you until tomorrow. Is that OK?
Angel Henderson ([email protected])
make sure you get it submitted before 8am your time tomorrow and check-in by 8am
have a good day sir [Always cracks me up when he calls me “sir” and “Mr. Chris” LOL]


ME: OK
Wed, 10:04 AM


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
Hello
8am tomorrow then


Wed, 2:10 PM
ME: I sent the PDF version of the application form to your email address.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
we need the MS word
email it here (   [email protected]  ) [Hysterical here because the scammers can’t keep their stories straight. They JUST told me they needed a scan after I sent them a MS Word version!]


ME: Oh. I thought you said I needed to have it scanned and email it to you.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
yes ofcourse
okay let me check the pdf
hold


ME: I am certain you said to sign in blue ink, bring to Kinkos to have it scanned, and email the file to you. Now I am confused as I thought I had done as instructed. [Get your stuff together, dude!]


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
very good
message me on here by 8am your time tomorrow


ME: I will.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
enjoy the rest of the day

Angel Henderson ([email protected])

ME: Hello, Yes, I am.
Angel Henderson ([email protected])
so why are you this late please? [HA! I actually snorted my drink through my nose when he sent this. All indignant because I didn’t reply right away. I kept them waiting on purpose to see how they would react.]


ME: I was Ill last evening with a stomach bug but I am recovering well this morning. [Big fat lie.]


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
Oh my God
I’m so so sorry about that sir
May God give you peace and sound health


ME: Thank you.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
welcome
Well, we don’t have much update this morning i am waiting for the director to contact me so that i can give you further instructions okay?

I want to make sure I don’t miss it.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])

Angel • Thu, 2:22 PM


ME: Yes


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
i will be giving you the FedEx Tracking# for the check mailed to you tomorrow morning
enjoy the rest of the day sir


ME: You as well
Thu, 3:34 PM


ME: Good morning. I am here when you are ready.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
good morning
hold online


ME: OK


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
how was your night ? [Nothing like a little feigned interest to start a new day!]


ME: Fine, thank you.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
good


ME: Is there anything you need to have me tend to this morning?


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
sure


ME: What can I do?


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
here is the FedEx Tracking# for the check mailed out to you
777294020XXX
OK


ME: WHen is it scheduled to arrive?


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
You can log on to www.fedex.com now to track the package and let me know the status of delivery, the management is giving each candidates the amount of $100 for for transportation on making transaction and another $100 for your check-in time [Amazing! In an effort to make sure I get their bad check to the bank ASAP, and wire them money ASAP, they are going to “give” me $200 more. So, I get more nothing to go with the original nothing – that’s a lot of nothing! Lucky me!]


ME: 9/23/2016 by 4:30 pm


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
are you sure?
OMG [How funny is this? Quick, when was the last time a HR manager said “OMG” to you in their communications?! Never? Yeah, I thought so. ;-)]
the vendor expect to receive the payment before they close by 4pm so they can ship the equipment to you today for tomorrow’s deliver, you need to start training


ME: Yes. It is currently in Massachusetts and should be delivered today.
Perhaps it will arrive earlier.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
it will be delivered today at that exact time [Dying here. Seriously. FedEx is going to deliver my package at EXACTLY 4:30. To use the words of the scammer… OMG!]
you will need to send some money to the vendor now because of the delay with the check delivery, so that the vendor can start working on the equipment because of shipment time, it’s very important you meet up with the Team schedule and you will be deducting any amount you are sending now from the check funds once delivered, tomorrow is the training introduction


ME: What money? Can you wire funds to me to do this? [He just told me to send MY PERSONAL $ for the “equipment” I need to start this job.]
I don’t want to miss the opportunity, but I cannot send my limited personal funds for this.
How much would I need to send?


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
you are getting it back today by 4:30pm so you should not have any problem with that
you already have the tracking# with you [Love the subtle sarcasm here. Look stupid American lady, you saw with your own eyes that FedEx will be delivering your check today at EXACTLY 4:30. You have nothing to lose!]


ME: Yes.
OK, who is the vendor and can you send me the supply list? [They sent the supply list on the first day, but I want to know if they can find it to send again since I have gone off-script.]


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
you’re making a partial payment so let me know how much you will be able send now
sent you that [In reference to the supply list.]


ME: I cannot send much as I just paid my rent and insurance bills. Only about $175.
Yes, I do have the equipment list, but I don’t think I have the vendor details.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
yes i will be giving you that now
how much will you be able to go and send now sir?


ME: Only about $175. It’s all I have.
As I mentioned, I just paid my rent and insurance so I don’t have too much in my account this morning.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
so you mean you can get up to $500 before 9am so that they can start working on the equipment and make shipment? [Totally disgusted that I can’t come up with $500 for them NOW – on demand.]


ME: I only have $175 in my account.
I may be able to borrow some but I don’t think I can get up to $500. [Baiting my hook to see how far they will go to get this done NOW!]


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
okay, borrow some as far as you’re paying it back
how much will you be able to get all together and how long will it take you to get it sir? [Well, Mr. Greedy Britches. LOL! Now he smells the money and wants it done quickly.]


ME: [Time to have a little fun with them for a minute.] I can call FedEx to see if I can pick the envelope up at their facility.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
it’s not in your state of yet
you wait to receive the equipment don’t confuse them [Because FedEx would be so confused if I came to pick up a package. I’ve done it a dozen times.]


ME: No, but I am near Massachusetts. I have done it before.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
i know but am sure it would be on vehicle already


ME: Yes, probably.
Well, I will make some phone calls to family and friends to see if I can get some money from them.
It may take a couple of hours though.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
you have till 10am your time [Wait! I’m on the clock now?! Do you have one of my children hostage? My cat? Went all mob hit on me here. Should I ask for “proof of life” before sending money? An ear or finger maybe?]
message me on here to let me know how much you’re able to send, stay blessed [“Stay blessed”… um… what can I say. Blessed by a scammer. There’s a poem in there somewhere. Or maybe a sitcom.]


ME: What happens if I am unable to get $500 by that time?
And what if I can only raise $200 – $300?


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
yes get 300 [OK, I hope that made you laugh as hard as it did me! Like he was accepting a bid. Going once… going twice… $300! Sold to the con man on Google Hangouts!]


ME: OK, I will try.
Angel Henderson ([email protected])
how long? [Pushy little sh… ]


ME: What should I do with the money when I get it?
I don’t know how long. I have to make phone calls to people. It may take a few hours.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
you mean just 300? [Pure disgust that it would take me hours to raise $300. I feel his pain, he’s invested a lot of time in trying to get some money out of me and now I am keeping him waiting.]


ME: Yes.
Most of my people are at work and it may take a while to get a call back and to actually get the money.
Where should I send it when it arrives?


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
go to a Walmart store and send the money to this info using Walmart Money Gram service
Name: Frederick Best
City: Pawtucket
State: RI
Zip-code: 02860
that’s the vendor’s info you’re to send the money to, send funds to be available to receiver for instant use


ME: OK. Do I need to make any notes on it so you know it’s from me.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
use your info as sender’s info and the vendor info as receiver
not at all
you only need to email the receipt
email receipt here once done ( [email protected] )
and send me the Money Gram Ref# with amount sent on here once done


ME: OK. I will start making phone calls now. [Yeah. I’m getting right on it, boss. I actually used the time to talk to the folks at Walgreens about the situation, and to speak with our contact at the Federal Trade Commission.]


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
alright, let me know once you’re headed to the store to send the money
I will. Thank you.

[Not quite an hour passes before he can’t take it any more. He wants his money!]


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
Hello. Mr, Chris
are you there


ME: Yes.
I am expecting a call back from my mother about the money. I should hear from her within the hour. [My poor mom. Best woman I’ve ever known, and here I am dragging her into my scam! Well, she loves a good adventure!]


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
okay, message me on here for notification


ME: Yes


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
good


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
any news of yet?


ME: I am leaving now to pick up the money from my mom.
I will let you know.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
alright


[An hour later…]
Angel Henderson ([email protected])
are you on your way to make the payment now ?
Hello [Someone’s a little twitterpated, no? ;-)]


[And 20 minutes after that…]
Angel Henderson (online[email protected])
Hello
are you not able to get the money
you need to be replying back to my messages.. This is a Job!! [HA! HA! HA! “This is a job!!” Absolutely bent over in laughter here. Such authority – it’s like he really believes it himself!]
hello


[Another 25 minutes… he’s going crazy now.]
Angel Henderson ([email protected])
are you there


ME: Yes. I am here. My mom is late. She should be here soon.
Once I get the money I will wire it as instructed. [Moms make great excuses, just ask my kids.]


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
okay


[30 minutes later…]
Angel Henderson ([email protected])
Hello, Mr Chris
has the payment been made now ?
the vendor need to start working on the equipment sir
hello


[15 minutes later…]
Angel Henderson ([email protected])
so you decided not to reply
no problem
you might be receiving two checks because we tried our best to make sure the check got to you earlier as well so you’re to deposit the check that is not from PNC and keep the second check which is from PNC safe in your wardrobe till i give you further information on it understood ?
so you keep pnc bank check and deposit the second check to your boa account via atm


ME: I am sorry. My mother has still not arrived, but I will get to Walmart as soon as she does.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
go and send $160 now [Thinking he may not get $300, he now wants some of the $175 I told him I have in my account.]


ME: In the meantime, I will do as you advised with the checks.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
they will start working on the equipment right away for shipment
time is not on our side, shipment needs to go out today and time is going already the mail room at fedex would close
so it better if they start working on the equipment now and get it shipped t the vendor needs a booking money to start that
so you can go and send $160 now [This is an order! DO IT!]
and you can send the rest when your Mother get back okay? [And… If your mom does come, and you can send more, DO IT AGAIN!]


ME: [Time to throw another curve ball – no car! He can’t keep everything straight already. Remember, I told him I was leaving to get the money from my mother. Then, I told him she was coming to me, was late. Now, no car!] Yes, I can do that. I will borrow my neighbor’s car and go to the bank for the money and then to Walmart to make the transfer.
The Walmart is not nearby, but I can get there this afternoon!
I am really looking forward to this opportunity!
Thank you.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
you can send it online
https://secure.moneygram.com/send


ME: Oh, how. I was instructed to go to Walmart.


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
click that link and send money online with it
to the infomi gave you


ME: OK [Oh joy! Another chance to toy with him and his desperate desire to get my money immediately! Can’t you just see him now, speaking to his partner’s in crime, “Mr. Chris is going to send us $160 online. It’s steak for dinner tonight, boys!” Brings a tear to my eye.]


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
Receiver Info.. Send funds to be available to receiver for instant use… Cash at agent location
Name: Frederick Best
Country: USA
City: Pawtucket
State: RI
Zip-code: 02860
that is cash pickup


[6 minutes later….]

are you started working on it ?
hello


ME: [Ready for this? Time to throw another wrench in his clockworks.] Please be patient. I just learned that my mother is late because she was hit in her car. I am on the phone with the doctor now.
I will do it in a minute


Angel Henderson ([email protected])
so sorry to hear that [I’ll bet you are, bub!]
okay


[1 hour later…]
Angel Henderson ([email protected])
Hello
are you there
Hello


[and another hour later…]

Angel Henderson ([email protected])
there has been some problems with fedex and the packages won’t be delivered anymore today, i noticed it when i saw 4:30pm anyway [They contacted FedEx and stopped the shipment thinking that they were going to get money up front from me. ;-)]
Well another check will be mailed to you via UPS to ensure delivery but you need to make the partial payment so that the vendor can start working on the equipment and make shipment

[I don’t reply and after another hour… Mr. Chris is a bi***]

hello
you are not even replying anymore anyway
seems you don’t want the Job
then we won’t need to mail you the check again and another candidate will have to take your position
thanks

[5 minutes later…]
but if you change your mind make the payment on time now and email the receipt so that the vendor can start working on the equipment because another candidate would order it tomorrow morning if you don’t make the order now

Stay tuned, I’m not done with them yet! 🙂
