I was contacted via email by Wilson Egan to see if I wanted to be a mystery shopper. I replied "sure, but that I'm 17" to see if it was a scam, because you need to be at least 18 to do any legitimate mystery shopper jobs. He replied it was fine and sent a check with a letter giving me my first "job". Check was for $2,480.00, by Hills Bank and Trust Company with Bill Elliot as the remitter. I was told to cash it and keep $300 then send the rest to Edwin Harbibe in Cyprus. Told if I completed in 24 hours I could get $100 more (to avoid keeping check in account long enough for it to be found to have no money behind it).Show more
