Signed up to be a mystery shopper. paperwork came in and it looked legit. $2945 cashier's check arrived. Keep $300 plus $45 for incidentals. Gave me a location to buy $2600 reloadit cards except in my area they don't exist. So I was to go to a bank and deposit the money, then give my survey of what transpired. I did this. I received another check to do another "assignment". In the meantime, I received an email from my bank that I am out $2945. so the cashier's check was fake. and the scammers got away with $2945 of my money.Show more
Received an email that forwarded me to a very legitimate looking target page. Everything about it seemed fishy, found other similar complaints online.Show more
I replied to an email to be a secret shopper for what I thought was the Target department store. Next thing I knew, I got a check in the mail for $2945. I was instructed to deposit it and take $300 for salary, $45 for transportation and reloadit it fees, and the rest would be for 4 more reloadit. I still have the check and don't know whether to return it or turn it over to someone. I do know not to deposit it.Show more
I replayed to an e-mail regarding to become a secret shopper. Filled out my name and address. Received today a Priority Mail envelope which contained a $2,446.00 cashiers check, purchased by Cynthia Delgado on Woodforest National Bank, The Woodlands, Texas 77387-7889.
A letter was included tell me to take $255.00 as payment. Cash the check and then go to the nearest Walmart outlet store and purchase 4 $550.00 Kroger reload vouchers. When I completed the "survey" then go to [email protected] to submit my report.
I checked with the BBB and they said that there is a company using their name. On their website there is a note that NO Cashiers Check would be involved in their business.
I was contacted via email about a mystery shopper position from Victor Walton. I have been out of work for over a year. So, this sounded pretty good, even my wife agreed. He would send me a check to deposit in my bank account. I would then select an item at Walmart for less than $50.00 dollars and make a report about the sales check how they made the sale. I would then make a moneygram with rest of the money left from the check less my pay of $350.00 dollars to a Karen Ballentine.
I deposited the check and was informed by my bank that I could only have $200.00 dollars, because the check was out of state. I was then informed to make a moneygram for $200.00 to a James Traxler, which I did.
My bank found the check to be bad and a fraud, the issuing Bank wouldn't accept the check saying the routing number doesn't exist.
My bank is now demanding and charging me the $200.00 that was drawn on the fraud and bad check.
I have called and written Victor Walton several times with no contact. I am so frustrated and upset that I was taken in by this person.
Got a letter for mystery shopping assignment. I read the directions then went to my bank to see if check will go through. Scam alert they told me and kept the check. They explained to me the check is not good and if it was cashed, I would have my account closed and deal with the police. So I got scammed and my cruel lesson learned.Show more
