Yedid Charitable Foundation Review

I applied for a position thru the Miller Law Firm, LLC located in Mobile AL. I was contacted and told I was being referred to a client who was in need of an Executive Assistant immediately and please forward my resume to [email protected] I did and shortly there after I received a response. We corresponded a couple of times about setting up an interview and the tasks. Then I received an email that stated I was receiving my first assignment before he returned to town, as his position caused him to travel frequently. My position would include arranging travel and hotels for him, making donations for his organization, scheduling meetings and such. I researched his organization, the Yedid Charitable Foundation and was unable to locate a phone number for the foundation. I also attempted to contact the law firm who "referred" me to him. The local phone number and the 800 number for this law firm are not valid numbers and there is no law office located at the address indicat

I researched his organization, the Yedid Charitable Foundation and was unable to locate a phone number for the foundation. I also attempted to contact the law firm who "referred" me to him. The local phone number and the 800 number for this law firm are not valid numbers and there is no law office located at the address indicated. I reverse image searched the pictures from the website Yedidcharitablefoundation.org and found that the 4 "board of directors" images were valid people in a different state altogether but listed with different names. I contacted all 4 of the people who’s images had been used and one even responded stating her image had been used in 3 separate scams in the last year and that she had attempted many times to be removed from their webpages. She said she would be contacting the FTC. I sent this Darren Mortensen an email stating I had realized this was a fraud situation and to not contact me again. This morning I had an email that appeared to be as if my previous correspondence wasn’t even read, although it was a direct reply. He stated that my first assignment was to take a client’s check to be deposited into my bank account and once the funds cleared, I would receive further instruction. He then claimed we would be meeting for an interview next week. approximately 4 hours later I received a fedex package with a check in it. I called my bank to report it and was told they essentially shred the checks without doing any kind of reporting. The check itself says to be drawn off of Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union, issued by Moneygram Payment Systems Inc , with the drawee being "Fist (not First) Interested Bank". I did contact and verify that Affinity Pluss CCU is a valid bank but she point blank told me the check was fraudulent. I feel I have been as detailed as possible. At this point the FTC, the BBB, and the "issuing" bank have all been notified. I will include a picture of the check.
