I was issued a check for $3,994.00 to be a mystery shopper but when I was told in the letter to call a number and I tried I get a Restriction -56 on my cell phone and that is the only phone that I have. But the check for that amount and how this is how they put it of how u are to spend it.
Probationary training pay......$450.00
Funds for shopping.......$100.00
Service Charge by WesternUnion/Money Gram.....$290.00
Required funds to be sent......$3,154.00
Total .........................$3994.00
I was just wanting to let everyone out there know about this company. The check they send you looks real. And probaly is but there is a cacth you have to call this phone number 514-663-3613 and you can't reach anyone if you have a cell phone and that is your only means of phone.

Seems to be a Nationwide Scam. Received one few days ago. New Orleans, LA. Mine says "ACME RESEARCH GROUP a Subsidiary of PCCA". They seem to have multiple numbers to call. My contact point is Sandra Goodman 514-574-7244. You can search "mystery shopper scam". Hope everyone stays away from this.
