Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
I received an email that looked interesting, since the restaurant that I worked at closed without any notice. WOW, mystery shopping!!So I answered the email, and was really excited about this possible new venture. About a week or so later, a large priority mail envelope was in mail for me. Then I got really excited. It read " cash your check immediately and proceed with task: Check for $1450. Walmart, then 2 Western Union tasks to wire money($615 at different stations, to CHARITY. That left $200 for me. Upon completion: email to: [email protected], also to [email protected], [email protected] Then of course, evaluate on time, secretly perform task. I should receive another pmt. in 24-48 hrs. Grant Wood . He also gave names Robert McBride, Richard Haworth, Chicago, Ill. Then I got real pumped up. Decide to ask my banker, she said more than likely a scam. I was ok until today 1-19-17 , I got an email from dear ol Grant Wood, saying I should have completed the task by now. If not, asap then email each task. Then, more $$$ will follow.
