I received a check from Kone E. Services AKA Kone Consumer Research Inc. informing me I had been selected to participate in a paid consumer research program as a secret shopper and that I had responded to their online survey and instructed me to contact Mr. Mike Adams at 1-403-708-5336 upon receipt of the letter so he could assist me and give me my job description in more detail. The letter also stated that due to the confidentiality agreement they have with their clients I was not to discuss this assignment with the staff of the stores or my bank. I was just to deposit the check and keep $300 spend $50 at Walmart, $50 at K-Mart, and Wire transfer $1,500 from Western union to a so called friend or relative and I was to keep my receipts and the merchandise from the stores. Thank God I am not that easily deceived! I immoderately researched the company name and found a similar situation as on on "Ripoff Report Website". I also looked up the address and found that this company is really a elevator company and that their address is 1 Kone Court, Moline, IL 61265 and the address on the check is One Kone Court. These people are stealing company names making one small address change, scamming you into believing you will get something for nothing. You must deposit the check right a way and wire them the money immediately! By doing so they receive $1,500 in cash and you have a check that bounces three days later! Wow, I wonder how many people really fall for this???? Nothing ever comes that easy or free!

I got the same check just the other day! Thanks for the detailed information here, because this link was the second thing that showed up when I typed the information in. Oh, the best part of the instructions was to not speak to anyone at the Bank about this! Maybe because the bank teller would say it is a scam?
