Received an email at my school email address for a mystery shopper opportunity; thought it to be legitimate due to my never using my school email for signups on anything (I have a faux email for that). Received a check for $2,500 to use to analyze the local post office. Did some searching, and no results came up for the company, or the person whose name was on the check. Impressively, the routing number and address match the credit union on the check. However, everything else seemed majorly sketch.Show more

I was responding to an ad for a mystery shopping position that I saw on a friends LinkedIN Page. I later learned that her page had been hacked. I had a feeling it was a scam so I played along. I was sent a certified Check from $3000 drawn on Point Luma Credit Union of San DIego, CA. and a letter with instructions to go to the Apple Store and purchase 2 Iphones and text the person when I made the purchases. I waited a day and sent a text "purchases were made" I was immediately texted back with an address and instructions to go to FED EX and send the phones. I responded by saying I was busy and headed out of town and couldn't do it. Then he texted and said "You can do it." I then said I was stuck at an airport and would do it the next day. And then I was told, once you send everything you will receive your new task. In the mean time, I had confirmed with the Bank Point Luma, that the check was fake and alerted them and sent them photos of the check, the letter and my correspondence with the scammer. I also spoke to the research company A La Carte Research and made them aware of this scam and sent them the same information. A La Carte and the Bank were to be contacting the Sheriff in Houston to report this person. I did not lose any money..No one will send anyone a Certified Check in the mail without knowing them -that is just plain stupid.Show more
