I got a letter with a cashiers check for $2450.00, that I was to deposit in my account, and go to two different Walmarts, purchase two $500.00, gift cards at two different locations. Scratch off the gray area, photo both sides and send the pictures to 774-377-3212 and 518-284-1585. And if I did this within 24 hours I would get a $100.00, bonus the second time. The Cashier’s check is bogus.

I found this company through a paid survey I signed up for on line. They responded with a Tex. They said they were looking for Mystery Shoppers. So I filled out their application on line. They said they would send me a check and instructions. Then they sent me a email if I got it and follow instructions care fully. The letter gave me a phone number to Tex them STARTER PACKET RECEIVED. I did. In the packet was a cashiers check for $1,485.00. I was to take to bank and deposit it and send them picture of my receipt. Then they want me to purchase ONE VANILLA VISACARDS. In amounts totaling $1,050.00 on 3 different cards. Then take pictures front and backs of cards. Well I went to bank they did a check on the check and the place they called said a lot of thoughts checks were coming in and they were fraudulent. Long story short they were going to remove the money from my checking account. Then also steel the money on the cards. They would have stolen almost $3,000.00 in the end. I texted them back told them I reported them. And they have a special place in Hell for people like them. So beware scammers love the innocent.

I received a letter in the mail with a check for $*** with instructions to cash the check, go to Walmart, spend under $***, then send a Money Gram in the amount of $***. I emailed the sender today about the validity of the check. Initially I thought it was a scam, so I did nothing. The response to the email will be enclosed. I believe this is likely a scam because of the unlikelihood of a secret shopping company asking for a money gram to be sent.

The response from Mustery Shopper, INC. is copied and pasted from today.

Thank you for the update. The check is good and kindly proceed to make the deposit to complete the survey tomorrow at the Walmart.

I was looking for part-time work and thought mystery shopping would be fun and fit my schedule. I was contacted and gave basic information to apply to Marketforce for Wal-mart mystery shopping. a week later I received an e-mail saying I was hired, two weeks later I received a cashiers check from a priority mail package from Dayton Nevada with a letter describing my instructions. see letter and check. There were no typical employment methods applied i.e. W-2 or W-4, I-9 Documentation, or any training whatsoever. A couple quick google searches and I was sure this to be a scam… now to catch the lazy [censored]! Don’t be fooled, I went to Marketforce website and looked at their scam warning, this has all the red flags raised, not only are they trying to take my hard earned money, they are dragging Market force’s reputation down too.

The letter stated that I “will be making TWO Walmart2Walmart Money transfer of $1,850.00 ($925 each) from different location to our feedback Dept.”. It then lists two names in Texas.

We received the package in the mail with check and instruction on what to do. After reading the instructions we called the BBB, and the business on the check, which both instructed us to shred the check and the business was aware of the scam. Looked on line for scams using the other business name and found that they too were aware of the scam. How I knew it was a scam to begin with was they were wanting us to wire money to two different places, go shopping with some of the money and some of the money was ours to keep. Both of the business is that were used in this scam are ligament companies, but they are located in different states. What they say is true "If it is to good to be true than its probably a scam"
