yeah I know it’s early, trust me I didn’t expect to be awake this early either, but a combination of a terrible nights sleep, a few nightmares, and a true scare I don’t think I’ll be sleeping any time soon. So here I am reaching out for advice on something that terrifies the shit out of me.
I thought I was applying for a desk position in some office, what I ended up getting instead (with NO TRAINING) was a position as an “Account Officer.” I am not trained to handle something this big, but honestly every alarm bell in my head is going off so loud I can hardly think. I know the company is a very real and very legit company (one many people know about) but it makes me a little leery about getting an e-mail out of the blue about a shipment that is being delivered TODAY to MY house that I have to take to MY bank and DEPOSIT, keep 10%, withdraw the rest, take to Western Union and send CASH to some place in the PHILIPPINES… yeah smell the fish yet? I have no clue what to do other than murder my boyfriend that decided to forward me a job position for this guy that I thought I’d be interviewing for. This would feel far more legit if I had an office and an official account to do this with. Well, they can be certain, if this is actually legit I will NOT do it through my personal account, if it is legit and IF I decide to keep the “job” it’ll have it’s own account. Try to start this thing off professionally ugh.
Any help would be beneficial, especially if anyone out there has been in this situation or is actually an account officer
