Total money lost $200

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I had applied for a secret shopper position on line. I received a certified check in the mail for $2880.00. I was told $300 was for my service and the remainder was to be split into two different amounts and sent via Money Gram. I was to observe the service and report back. I did deposit it into my account before I realized it was a scam; however, after sharing that I had received this with a friend, she cautioned me that it is probably a scam. I alerted my bank and reported it as a possible fraud. The check cleared my account. I received a text indicating that I should proceed to withdraw the money. I responded that I would only after the check had cleared my account not just having the funds available. Instead, I did contact the bank that was on the check to find that the account does not exist. I am out of $200 which I withdrew at the time that I deposited the check. I sent the info to the bank, Campus Federal, which the check was supposedly drawn from. They are investigating the many inquiries like this. Attached is the check and the letter that came with it. I have x’d out my name for anonymity.

I received an invitation to be a "mystery Shopper" via email.

I replied yes.

I received a money order, Priority Mail 2 days ago, 9/17/16, for the amount of $978.00. Told to deposit the money order in my bank, report to them when I did and to keep $200.00 for myself.

The email correspondence was with David Tyler, HR Manager

The Priority Mail envelope return address is Shiryl Hutchison, APT 135, 2484 Egrets Glade Dr., Jacksonville, FL, 32224-1312

I was to send the money to David Clark, 564-570 Quintin Paredes Street, Binondo, Manilla, Phillipines

I did none of these things and I contacted you, the BBB.

Thank you for handling this and so many fraud cases.
