Type of a scam Other

I received a cashier check for $2,490.00 to be a secret shopper. When I received the letter with the check, they wanted to deposit/cash within the first 12 to 24 hours to receive an extra $100.00 ( total of $450.00) for me, the rest would be to go secretly to stores to buy what was told. I had called the number provided and I said, Hello, he responded, “did you get it?” I asked his name and he said James Miller, but just call me James. Was asking questions and he told me, you can have $250.00 instead of $350.00 as indicated when I cash it. Then I can hear a phone ringing in my phone and I asked, do you have to get that and he said, no the secretary will, but it kept ringing. The cashiers check is from Heritage Bank in Pearland, TX. I looked up area code and it is located in Oakland California. The bank teller thought it may be fraud and not to cash it!!!!

Total money lost $2,250

Type of a scam Employment

I received both a text message and email with notification of my "first assignment". I can’t remember who was the "friend" who first suggested I use this service to make additional money now that my husband has ALS and I could use extra money for medical expenses. The first text was on 10/06/19 from "heads of operations" Alex Tyler from phone number 407-337-4531. On 10/17/19 I received the text that assignment had been delivered. On 10/17/19 I received the email indicating that the asignment was delivered via priority mail # 92055901755477020000518990. Cashiers check for $2,250 received and deposited on my Chase check account. Cleared on 10/21/19. Purchases of gift cards made on 10/21/19 and 10/22/19 for total of $1,800 made as instructed (report as mystery shopper submitted on 10/22/19). Check then on hold and funds on account reverted on 10/22/19. Now the check has been reported as fraudulent. My account at Chase is under investigation and under risk of being closed permanently. I have put the money from my own savings. I’ve been a Chase client for at least 9 years and never had a problem. The "heads of operation" used the excuse of cancelling the provided check of me not completing the task in 12 hours, as instructed by the task letter. The instructions letter only indicates that if the task is completed in 12-24 hrs you get a bonus of $100. There are no directives in regards to time limits to complete the assignment.
