I was on the internet, responded to a Mystery Shopper e-mail , They sent me a money order for 975.00 and then a check for 1890.00, Both were bad, but did look good, So they wanted me to go to western union and evaluate their service, and wire the money minus my fee to another mystery shopper get my next assignment and make 1000.00 a week ! so I was to deduct my fee 500.00 , well by now I knew this was a scam, There scam is they send you the fake check hoping you will get excited and go wire the money before the check clears, or they hope some dumb check cashing place will actually cash the bad check or not detect the fake money order,making you a party to a crime. They even gave me a deadline of today to complete my assignment knowing the check want clear and stealing money. I told them when their check cleared I would complete the assignment, being a bored retiree I played with her or them via e-mail. After 27 years in Law Enforcement I knew this was a scam. Haven’t heard anything else from them.
