Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

heard about a mystery shopper need through an associate on Linked In. I contacted the HR person and expressed interest. With only my name, email, cell # and home address I received my first assignment within 2 weeks. My assignment included a cashiers check made payable to me for $2,850.00 with instructions to deposit in my bank account and keep $400.00 for completing the assignment and to withdraw $2,450.00 and wire it to a woman in Puerto Rico through Money Gram at Walmart and then evaluate the the service received when sending the Money Gram. I corresponded via email with a company contact who pleaded with me to cash the check. This is an obvious scam.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I am keeping the letter and cashier’s check I received through the *** today that I am supposed to transfer to a A*** A*** N*** at *** ***. *** in *** *** *** *** in the United States. I am a teacher at home for the summer, or I would scan this document at our copy machine and send you a PDF.

If you want me to go in to work and create a PDF of the check and/or letter, I will be happy to do so.

I originally saw that a former colleague of mine from *** *** *** *** posted an opportunity to make extra cash by being a mystery shopper had posted this opportunity on *** last week and foolishly sent in my name, cellphone, and home address. I immediately felt something fishy was going on but didn’t realize I had truly been had until I opened the package this morning.

I also have the text they sent me asking me to text them the minute I got the package. I texted them, all right. I texted them and told them I would be contacting you immediately and would then shred their document. I will keep it until I hear from you and/or some time has elapsed.
