Type of a scam Employment
November 3, 2019 One of my contacts on LinkedIn, Hara Naham, suggested this PT business opportunity to make additional money. She sent me the application and I completed it. I asked her if it was a scam that day and she stated no. On Nov 4 I received an email from "Karen" at [email protected] and I was very leary about this business so I messaged Hara Naham and she stated that her LinkedIn account was hacked and that it is a total scam. The company states it is a "mystery shopper" assignment. Today I received my assignment and I attached it to this report for you to let me know if it is legit or not. I will receive the money in the mail on Friday, November 8 and would like to know how to proceed.
Unable to attach 2 documents, so i copied and pasted the email that I received on 11/4/19:
