Consumer Complaint: XX/XX/XXXX I was contacted via email by a scammer who presented himself as an employee of XXXX XXXX XXXX.

He received my resume from XXXX and wanted me to work as his assistant and accounts receivable manager.

Once hired I received my first payment on XX/XX/XXXX and I deposited the funds. They were on hold for 2 days and once navy federal cleared them I went to the branch. At the branch before my withdrawal I asked the teller please make sure the funds have cleared all the way on the other banks end ( XXXX XXXX XXXX ). She came back after 30-40 mins and stated the check was good and cleared with the bank.

I withdraw the funds and head over to XXXX XXXX to deposit the funds into a XXXX XXXX account. I thought I was paying for my training and equipment..

2 days later I’m slapped with a {$3400.00} balance from this bad check I was told was good.

Navy federal refuses to provide me with a HOLD HARMLESS to settle the balance although I have a police report number and complaints with the FBI, XXXX XXXX, etc. I have provided them with the police number etc.

They should be protecting me. I’m a victim. I contacted the XXXX XXXX ( XXXX ) and they said their is a open investigation in the company because this guy is moving around the United States scamming people. He’s been in XXXX, XXXX etc.

NAVY FEDERAL needs to help me.
