Employment Web Scam Warning
Ashley Furniture's good name has been used as part of an employment scam.
The scammer sends e-mails, appearing to be from Ashley Furniture Industries, which
advertise Accounts Receivable or Work from Home jobs.
The scammer instructs the victims to receive large checks, purportedly from Ashley's
customers, and deposit them into their personal bank account. They then typically
instruct the victim to wire 90% of the money to an account out of state or out of
country, and for the victim to keep 10% for processing fees. The checks that the
victims receive, of course, are counterfeit, but this is not discovered by the victims
until they have sent their own funds to the scammer and the counterfeit check is
rejected by the bank.
