I received an email from MyCoin escrow services to become an at home escrow manager. It sounded suspicious, and would like to know if anyone is familiar with this or has heard of them. They sent me a link to their website: https://coinescservice.com/bit
They have set me up with an account with a dashboard that looks real, but am still leary. I would like to know if this is a scam.

So they want you to become an escrow? Did you sign up for anything with your email that has anything to do with becoming an escrow or did they just send that email randomly to you without you signing up for anything?

It's definitely a scam. They will likely ask you to deposit a sum of money to start escrowing and whatnot.

Never heard of them. Stick to real bitcointalk escrows if you are looking for an escrow.

Probably a shady behaviour, those emails are from bought bulk emails where they get your information that's they can easily message you.

If the site asked for money for something related to the site, then just avoid them. Probably its a scam.

As what mentioned above, escrow services in this forum are still the best and more trusted.

It's a scam for sure.

Why would they email someone that they don't even know beforehand or trust to provide escrow services which require significant amounts of trust to carry out? And plus why would they unsolicitedly email you without you submitting your email address to them?

Do not trust them, they'll probably tell you to pay them an amount of bitcoin as "guarantee fund" or something along the lines.

Really just a Nigerian scam, but evolved to incorporate bitcoin.

I know MyCoin Escrow is a FRAUD - first hand.

Fortunately, I had opened a new bank account so that none of my normal accounts, etc... could be accessed.  I personally have lost about $45 total. I cannot say that for the person or people who did the two wire transactions that I helped with. I hope they can retrieve their money.

Like, Raul Duke, received a notice to work from home and it all seemed very legit.  They even did a background check on me because I would be handling other people's money.  I filled out all the regular work forms, etc.  Also had to set up my profile on a work site with a communication portal just like any regular job

After the second transaction, I noticed my bank account was frozen.  I called my bank and they said the person who sent the wire was suspicious and was having his bank try and retrieve the funds. 

I immediately started trying to contact the lady who was my "supervisor"; needless to say really she never called me back.  Then a few hours later, I no longer had access to the job portal.

I did everything I could to make sure they were not a fraud.  I went to my bank to give them the heads up about the new job and my apprehensions. I also signed up with Experian Identity Protection before getting started. In addition, I questioned my "supervisor" and very directly explained how apprehensive I was about being involved in fraud.  She, of course, did everything necessary to ease my worries, provided enough evidence and information that made me believe all was on the up and up. Didn't matter, they apparently pulled it over on me anyway!

I am glad I did those two things though because they still have my social, address and all the other legal things that are required to start a new job. So if they try to hack into my personal accounts, open new ones, etc... I at least have better protection in case of that.

I have been researching ever since this happened. I have been fortunate to have found some information on the people that are behind this scam and I have every intention of handing them over to the authorities. 

Under different circumstances, there was an attempt to fraud me one time in the past. I did the same thing I'm doing now and the people ended up going to jail and paying fines. I will continue now again until that happens. We should all pursue to the very end, never giving up until people like this pay for putting us through this and not allowing up peace of mind when dealing with one another!

A couple of simple things I've done now (hindsight!) that I want everyone to try if you suspect fraud.  Find out what their social media's are.  You know businesses and people who are trying to make money are going to be out there socially. Find out who the team members are and search them socially.

On the online job site that I have to set a profile on, my "supervisor" posted a picture of herself.  I should have immediately searched it, obviously, I didn't. 
I right clicked on the picture and there was a choice to have Google search the image.  Immediately, the person came up with a different name!  If I had thought or known to do that the first time I went on the sight none of this would have happened to me.

I hope my experience helps you.

I almost fell for it, but I figured it was a scam when they never tried to contact me or do a phone interview. They just told me I was hired, but I refused to register for their Escrow manager website until I was contacted. Needless to say they never contacted me. I did however ended signing into to the registration link after a two weeks but then I saw AdBledsoe post confirming my suspicions.

I am so glad to hear that my post helped!

Jimilake

Check out the supervisor's photo like I did.  Take all of your money out of that account because it will be frozen soon.  How soon your account is frozen depends on the people who are sending the money and how quickly they discover the scam.  
If you get another transfer to do - delay it for a few days and don't transfer to MyCoin - move the money somewhere else until you know for sure. There isn't anything MyCoin scammer can do you other than being mad that you aren't helping them scam someone else!

You mentioned Melissa Best - Yes, that is exactly right - Melissa Best is who she claims her name is.  I also linked her to Veronica Raymondo.  Here is some information I found on Veronica.  Bad thing is, this woman could be just using Veronica's picture. We won't know until the FBI investigates.  The IP addresses for coinescservice.com 107.27.145.122 and 107.27.144.122. The IP for tomorrowhire.com 104.27.136.84 and 104.27.137.84

Linkedin shows her picture and current employment. She is on all the social medias. On Facebook she is VeonicaBrittany
Veronica Nunez Raymondo (562) 396-2516  (Melissa Best)
Daughter is Liana, Aunt Carol, Monica Amaya, Dad: Steve Nunez, Husband: Aaron, Mother: Nancy Nunez, Sister: Amanda, BinL: Maurice

The bank simply says it stays frozen until a fraud is determined or not. Then, I expect they will take whatever funds are still in the account to give to the sender.  I don't think that is right either as I was scammed as well. Fortunately, though, I wanted to be sure no one could get to my normal accounts so I didn't have much in this one.

Make sure you file a report with Internet Crime Services/FBI.

We have to pursue this guys!

Let me know if you discover anything new.

I hope no one is discouraged or not taking a stand because of the members on here basically laughing at people who have been scammed.  Saying things like "I wonder who falls for this shit" is not helping us stop these people.

Saying things like that or laughing at people actually help scammers.

It is hard enough for any of us to admit we've been taken.  It is embarrassing and very frustrating, especially when you do EVERYTHING possible to protect yourself.  We need to be able to talk about these things so we can unite not cower.

I hope it never happens to you but it may.  Don't wait until then to consider the impact of your words.

Thanks for your input.
I wanted to ask a follow-up question to your comment

"If you get another transfer to do - delay it for a few days and don't transfer to MyCoin - move the money somewhere else until you know for sure. There isn't anything MyCoin scammer can do you other than being mad that you aren't helping them scam someone else!"

Where do you move this money to? Also what do you end up doing with the $$ after your account is frozen and your MyCoin site is shut down. Where does this large sum of Money go???

My concern is that I may be in legal trouble even though I was unaware that I was involved in the scam" Please provide any feedback based on your experience.
