Fake job offer

A man reported receiving an email from someone purporting to be a representative of ORIC Pharmaceutical Company. After responding to the email, he was directed to contact a second individual via Microsoft Teams, and he was informed he would receive a $1,250 check via email. The scammer told the man to deposit the check into his account, go to the nearest CVS or Best Buy, purchase a $200 Sephora gift card and send them the receipt and card information. The man purchased the gift card but felt uneasy about the situation, so he discontinued communication with the scammer and contacted the police.
