First of all, a little about me. My name is Karen and I am a university student about to enter my last year in school. I want to continue my education and go to grad school. From there, I would like to enter the healthcare sector and help provide better services for low income families.
So recently I started a job as an administrative assistant for a lady who claimed to be working for DRES, a disability service. She sent me checks, so I could deposit them into my account and then buy her the things she needed, in this case she needed iTunes gift cards to help install program into iPads for kids with disabilities. So the checks were deposited into my account, and I started to buy her the gift cards, I assumed nothing was wrong because a bank wouldn’t deposit the money if the check wasn’t real, would it? Well I was wrong, because a couple days later the check was returned due to it being a closed account, but I had already given Dr. Lori Snow (who she claimed to be) the giftcards and she had used them. I really do believe in helping others and cannot believe there are bad people in the world who would use the excuse of helping disabled children to steal money from broke college kids. Now, I do not have enough money to pay for rent, buy groceries, and am working two jobs to try to help pay for these.
