Money Scam
12th of Jul, 2012 by Dahlia27
I have been job hunting on Craigslist for several months. I found a posting for a Customer Service Representative, which would have been right up my ally. I first sent an email for them to confirm the company and posting before sending personal information in case it was a scam. They replied with an ad for a Secret Shopper. Although I could tell the English was very well I sent my resume anyway and just omitted my SSN and then got this:
How are you today and how is life with you and the family? hope cool?
The company has issued out a payment to you for your First Assignment as a Mystery Shopper Here is the tracking number for the payment (423806915001050) which means your payment of $500.00 has been issued to you with some funds which you will use in executing your first Assignment.
I am emailing you to confirm you will be receiving your First Assignment as a Mystery Shopper Today till Next week on the 16th VIA FEDEX courier service and I want you to watch out for the package and Follow the Instructions below carefully and get back to me with all Assignment Reports and Information via email upon the completion of your assignment and If you miss the package, kindly check your Door step or Mail Box

(1) You are to deduct $500 for your commission from the total payment received, after completion of first assignment.

(2) You are to make a purchase of any electronic item worth $50 from any Wal-Mart location in your area (to be kept by you) and is now your duty to take note of the following activities at the wall mart location

i) How long it took you to complete the shopping and report on service, quality of product

Remember: Any item you purchase from the Wall-Mart store should be kept by you for your personal use since we are only interested in the accurate information from your survey

(3) You are required to proceed to any nearest Western Union location in your area with the remaining balance to perform your transfer assignment,after you might have deducted your $500 commission, and $50 for the Wal-Mart duty

Immediately after your Wal-Mart assignment, you are required to proceed to the nearest Western Union location to perform your transfer assignment.

You are advice to send the rest fund over to our mystery shopper in LA USA

...So today I get home and I find a check with my name on it for $2,950. I knew immediately it was a scam because I never responded back to them to confirm my information or even accept the job after I saw that they wanted me to deposit and wire money, I used to watch a lot of Dateline...
Sorry it was so long but I wanted to include all the details because even if all scams like this aren't the same, they generally have the familiarities.

Same thing happened to me today. I answered an ad on Craigslist and then got an email. I told them I would need to check their company out before I sent any information. I then received 15 text through out the afternoon asking me if I was interested in the job. I continued to tell "Terry" that I needed their information such as company name address and phone number. I received a text telling me "this is not a scam". I continued to repeat to them that I would need to check them out first. I then received a text with a web address to check the company out. When I typed it in the admin told me that the site was frozen and that if I am the owner of the site to contact their "Abuse team" regarding the web site. I continued to receive text so I finally told them they were pushing it and ...they sent ONE more. This one told me that the check was in the mail!!
