Eeek!  This sounds scary, and I’m sorry you’re in this situation.  What was the job description like, just curious?

Sometimes it can really help to call news stations and get their investigative team involved. They LOVE stuff like this and have a lot more OOMPH behind them.

By saying she would report you to some agency (have you tried googling it? If there is an agency by this name with any authority they will show up in a search), she’s trying to scare you into silence. Her defensiveness is definitely odd.

Also, where did you see the job ad? Craigslist? A job website? I would contact the moderators immediately and start a dialog about this odd situation.

That does look pretty legit, and you shouldn’t have thought you would get scammed.  I agree, call the news station and out them if you don’t feel safe now.  Very weird…

Um, report you for what exactly?  That’s ridiculous.  You should not worry.
