Maria Surina is a very brazen, fraudulent and unscrupilous woman who had the audacity and confidence to actually post the job title “Prepayment manager” on the Ziprecuiter website. It was under the customer service section of this site. I actually applied to this position with my resume. She promised that the employee would get $4000-$4500 a month. They made it seem like the main office was in the galleria area in Houston on the map. I was hired without an official interview. That should’ve been a red flag because I know better but I let my guard down since I actually apllied to this job. I was expecting to go to an office but that wasn’t the case. | She told me to look up pennyauctionreviews.com and look at what the company was about. She told me that the website auctioned jewely and that people from the U.S and Europe participated at the bidding. The document stated the P.M which is the protection system works like this: The buyer buys the goods, the seller sends it to an expert to check and verify it and then the buyer sends money to the P.M. which should be my job description. The Prepayent manager would send the money via Western Union to the seller in order to protect the buyer and seller. I didn’t know at the time that this was at my expense. | I looked up this company and they seemed legit. They have other alleged P.Ms. online. They also have jwerly displayed for bidding. The jewerlries seem like the real deal. She also had a video explaining the system on that website. Maria Surina requested that I should give her my bank account number so that I could recieve the money from the buyer. I faxed her that info. | This was the task of the P.M. She then changed the figures that she advertised on the Ziprecuiter website. She stated that she would pay me $2,000 after 30 days as my salary with 4% commision. She stated that this would happen if they made $25,000 on the auction site, and she assured me that they always reach that mark every month. Maria Surina told me that after making 6 successful payments, I would be put on the site. She even called me on a couple ocassions to inform me about payments. | We were in contact through the internet as she coached me on what to do and who to send money to. She alerted me that a customer was going to send me a little over $1,600. I took my cut 4% of this money and sent this money to the recipient, A Maksym Ronin in Kiev, Ukraine. The second time the same alleged buyer sent $2,000 the same week to the same person in the Ukraine and I took my cut as was stated in the contract. I thought everything was ok. The next day when I tried to check my account, the bank stated that my account was suspended. They told me that the buyer disbuted that they even paid this ammount or that it was from them. | When I informed Surina that my account was suspended, she acted like she wanted to resolve this issue. She claimed that the buyer did not make that claim. When I informed the bank about her claim, they informed me that the only way they would drop this is if the person dropped the dispute. I informed Surina to tell the buyer to drop this dispute if it wasn’t bogus and that was the last time I heard from her. I tried to call the same number that she called me with, she wouldn’t pick up. Disgruntled, I called her again recently only to discover that the phone has been disconnected. | This woman has stopped responding to my emails. I asked her if she would pay me what I was owed or at least, help to resolve what she had caused but she refuse to respond. When I proceeded with this job, I had a gnawing feeling that they were too good to be true but I should’ve listened to my instinct. I also suspected this unscrupilous woman of passing my personal info to other scammers in her network. This person passes as Michael Neldon who claims to work for Regency Realty in the NYC with the phone number +**********. When I called this number, a Kitty Morton or Martin voice echoed in the voice mail. | Maria Surina owes me $2,000 and she must be stopped. FBI and possibly INTERPOL should stop her and her co-horts because her scams not only exists in within the U.S. but also internationally. She posts the “Prepayment Manager” position on job recruiting websites. Beware of Maria Surina. Be on the look out on Ziprecruiters, Monsters, etc. Anytime you see pennyauctionreviews.com or Pennyauction Jewerlry auction, it’s her. She has a thick European accent and video is on the website. You’re going down scammer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
