Someone offered me a job. Sent a cheque as advance payment. Deposited it and bank encashed it right away. Sender of the cheque asked me to deposit portion of the amount sent to someone who has TD account too.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Few days after, I discovered my account went on negative... ran to the bank and was told i was a victim of a scam
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
they had me call fraud dept to discuss the case... I was told i was naive and stupid to accept a cheque from a stranger...
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Then they said i had to bring a copy of the cheque for them to investigate... So I did... Then I asked them what am supposed to do next when I'm supposed to deposit a pay cheque in order for me to be able to pay bills
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
March 9 i opened another checking account giving me the assurance that they will not be taking my money that will come in the new account
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
But they did. So I called the customer complained department and they have agreed to pay the amount they took. They want me to sign a confirmation of settlement and release form
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

I cannot know if you are done or not.

Are these all the facts?

What is your specific question please?

I need you to review a paper
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
They want me to sign prior to releasing the funds they took from my account
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Are you still there?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Are you still tbere?
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

Yes of course I am still there but the way the site works is you post and wait and then I reply. You just keep posting over and over again and I have no idea when you are done..

I am not able to review legal documents. That is not what we do. You need your own lawyer for that.

I can just provide legal information.
