Type of a scam Phishing
"Shoppers Voice" sent an on line offer for a $75 Chick-fil-A coupon if I fill out a survey. After completing a very lengthy and invasive survey I expected to finally receive the promised coupon. Instead they provided a coupon for a small bag of coffee for $1 and a coupon for little grocery samples.
I believe it’s illegal to offer something in return for another thing and then not provide what was promised after a customer fulfilled their part to qualify for that offer. It’s definitely unethical.
They extracted valuable personal information from me. I don’t want them to use it or profit from it as I was scammed into providing my info under false and fraudulent pretenses.
I wish for them to cease and desist from further similar scams against me and others. I wish them to not disseminate my information and to retrieve my information already disseminated. I wish them not to profit from using my personal information, having extracted it by fraudulent means.
I didn’t save the online offer for a $75 coupon in return for completing their survey. Of course it is no longer shown after doing the survey.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
They offered a mystery shopper position, and mailed me a cheque. I deposited it, and informed my bank to check the validity of the cheque. After 4 business days and a call to confirm the cheque was good, I carried on with the assignment of a transfer of money to a specific account. After 4 days, my bank tells me I have a bad cheque when I tried to deposit a second one. I emailed the Phillip dyer to say my bank didn’t process the cheque properly, and they told me they’d fix the situation but no money or contact has been received.
