Christine Donelly Tried to scam me with offering employment, sending a check to purchase software

Complaint / review text:
Replied to a possible employment opportunity on Craigslist with Accounting doing Data Processing and Budget. Was contacted initially by a lisa. [email protected] aka Melissa Smith, Lisa Smith, Lisa Toops-Smith and was instructed to conduct an online interview with the Hiring Manager named Christine Donelly. I was told I would have an online interview and to log on to yahoo messenger, add [email protected] I was giving a brief background of the company. After some extensive questioning, I had to wait for a response as to if I was hired. I then was informed that I was in fact hired and when I asked further about the company I was told that the website was however, the website was under construction. I was instructed to report online via yahoo messenger daily at 9am EST and report to Christine. I then was given various tasks to complete daily and submit to her via email. I received an "official check" to be deposited into my account to go and purchase the appropriate software needed to conduct my daily duties. I was weary of this so when the check arrived, I tried calling the bank printed on the check TD Bank yet they would not verify that the account was legit. I then reserached the routing number on the check and it was an invalid/old routing number for TD Bank. I then phoned the company B&H Electric and Supply and was informed that they were NOT hiring and that I was the second person in a three week span that called questioning the above actions. I reported the info to TD Bank, fraud department, FBI and the Federal Trade Commission. Whoever these people are they are trying to act as if they are an entity of B&H Electric and they are not. I saved the check in addition to all the correspondence with the individuals. Once I confronted the individual, they got defensive and then ended contact with me. Go figure.
