Deborah – Oct 06, 2020
I am supposed to be a Walmart Secret Shopper and got a check for $2,620 from SPF Development Corp. which I was supposed to deposit within 48 hours and take out $2600 in cash: $2000 to go to Walmart and purchase two blank money orders and carry out my “evaluation task” and then keep $500 as payment and $100 for gas/transportation/fees associated with the task. I was supposed to text someone along the way each time I completed another step. At the end, I was to wait for a text to tell me where to send the blank money orders through UPS early morning air. If I did all of this within 48 hours, I would get an additional $300 in Walmart gift cards as a bonus. I called the FTC and reported it before depositing the check. They told me to stop all communication.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
I received a check in the mail for $3598.76 that I have not earned, or requested, or expected. There was no other letter in the envelope. This is a scam!
