Received email requesting phone interview for "personal assistant" position. Had phone interview next day and was told that I would receive email the following Tuesday letting me know if I got the job or not. Received text and email offering me job. I have been unemployed for the last 6 months and it sounded wonderful so I responded back accepting. Then had several telephone conversations with a Dave Gallo. He told me I would be receiving a laptop and a check in the amount of $4,800.00 to buy office supplies (both are supposedly in the mail).I worked in a law firm for years and contacted some people that told me NOT TO DO ANYTHING it is a scam. Went to Harris County Sheriff’s Department on Cypresswood Drive in Houston and police officer told me information that I had not given him & told me it was definitely a scam. I would probably not be receiving a laptop and told me how the check thing works. Told me not to sign anything or respond further with this Dave Gallo. I think I caught this in time but was told to report it anyway.
