I was looking for a job when I received a email from a company Man Tech LTD.looking for a receiving Payment agent.Thinking this was good job I sent my application in. About two days later I received a check from a guy name Robert Cook claiming to be a customer of Man Tech and the funds he sent has to be forward to the company. The first thing I did when I received the check was mail the check to Federal Credit Union on 2/29/07 the next day I made a call to the credit union to make sure that they received the check for $42,338.12, the customer service representative stated that they received the check, I explain to her that the check was a company check and that I was just holding it until the checked cleared, and that I didn't know those people, and requested for the credit union to hold the check until it fully cleared because I didn't know if the check was good or bogus. On the morning of the 2/5/07 I called the credit union again to find out when the check will clear, the credit union representative told me that the money had been deposit into my checking account. I ask her if the check had fully cleared and her reply was yes, so I said I guest the check is real and her responds was yes. I told her that I needed to wire transfer the money to Japan. She said that she could do it for me. I ask her can I do it on Federal Credit Union home banking on the internet and she said yes. Some where during this period I spoke to a lady name Rachel at Federal Credit Union. After I got the information of how to wire transfer the money from Federal Credit Union, I made the wire transfer to New York Mizuho Bank LTD., where they would wire transfer the money to Mizuho Bank in Japan.The next day the credit union told me that the check had been stolen and now the credit union has frozen my accounts.I was scammed,I also believe that the credit union should held the check until the money was sent from the bank the check was written on. Because I didn't have funds in my account to cover the check. I realize that this was a (scam)fraud. Now the credit union wants their money which I don't have.
