No I don’t think I have given out my personal Social Security number. They offer me a job to secret to check out a postal office in my neighborhood. Deposit the check into my account which was sent by them. Then I need to got to the postal office and get some blank money orders with the receipt from purchase of the money order. Thank a picture of it and send the information by email. But before all that happened I must call and check in with Troy Mathewson at 616- 274-0275. I have received other offers as well with the same instructions but different companies. I refused to indulge in the services. It seem like a scam. Time to report it

It was for employment for working as a secret shopper the scammer sent me a check and wanted me to deposit the check he sent into my bank account and then go to my nearest postal store and evaluate the Postal Store. They also wanted me to see how long it took to get service smartness of the attendant customer service professionalism.

Scamming part time work as a secret retail research paid survey worker from Facebook. I received a Priority Mail Express envelope on October 16, 2020 Friday , enclosed with instructions on how to expedite the scam with a phone number and name of person I should be communicating with via text only. There's also a check take to my bank and get it cash (cash only) proceed with the task at hand via texting this person with farther instructions. I'm thinking I'm working with a legitimate company. The check is made out with another company name and state. I research the company and found no such affiliation with person I suppose to be texting. I'm reporting this because I don't want no wrongdoings. Please help asap, their texting me constantly

I received a text message saying Intellishop was accepting applications for qualified agents for a Walmart shopping survey. The message said that each assignment would pay $500. There was a link to click on to fill out the application. I filled out the application form (they used Zoho forms to create the "application") at the end of which it said that I would receive an e-mail with some training videos to watch and details regarding the shopping survey. Well, I never received the e-mail, only another text message several days later saying that I was going to receive a package and that I was to sign for the package and follow the instructions on the memo. The second text message is when this didn't seem right. The envelope was even more alarming. The envelope contained a letter (with no company letterhead and several typographical errors) with instructions to deposit, not cash, a traveler's check for $4,900. Then I was to withdraw the money the next day when it was available and purchase 4 blank $1,000 money orders at Walmart. I was to keep in touch with a man named Robert Books after each step in the process. The attached images contain the entire memo and instructions.

First on being to Confirm the receipt of the package. Second your full name and the amount of your check and if you did all this you would receive another $200.

This was supposed to be Walmart secret shopper through intellishop. They sent me an assignment by email followed by a Fedex package containing 2 postal money orders that I was supposed to cash at my bank and then proceed to the assignment of Britcoin. I checked out this company at BBB and a huge alert came up on it. So I started asking them questions, like full company address, contact number, Managers name and address ect.

Still waiting for a reply.

I received a blank money order in the amount of $998.00 with instructions to make it out to me and cash it. Buy $850 worth of ITunes Gift cards, send pictures of them to payoffic[email protected]. The remaining $148 left was to be my commission.

- Miamisburg, OH, USA

Offered up to $1000 for being a secret shopper. Sent check to my home address. Problem being the check is made from Walmart’s account. Contacted Walmart and they don’t use secret shoppers.

Found out that secret shoppers are paid a minimum of $25 and a maximum of $35. I received $995. Never cashed the check. Am planning on turning it over to the Attorney Generals office

I initially received an email from this person claiming that I "have been pre-qualified to take part in the Intellishop® Secret Shopper program you signed up for and a survey package with rewards has been mail to your provided address. Kindly confirm you got this message?" *NOTE* I did NOT sign up for a secret shopper program! I received this letter and cashiers check at a family owned home. Mind you, I no longer reside at this house and haven't for years. This is not my first rodeo with scammers so it made me laugh. The others were not from the U.S. Please be aware that this is happening on our soil also and is costing citizens a lot of money. God bless!

I received a cashiers check from Golden1 Credit union for $1850. A letter was with it stating to complete a Walmart survey on the employees by first depositing this check, buying something at Walmart, and then wiring money to 2 separate people and you get to keep $200. Someone has been texting my phone strongly pushing me to deposit the check and trying to convince me that it’s legitimate. The letter states to use the Wiring service at Walmart to wire two different people, Joshua Reese and John Maher.

They give a check to facilitate a WalMart store purchase, WalMart 2 WalMart transfer and a Money Gram transfer. You are given a BOGUS cashier's check in the amount of $1,850 which they tell you to deposit into your checking account. I chose to take it to the bank it was drawn on (Bank of America) whose office manager informed me that it was a fraudulent document. DO NOT BE DUPED BY THIS ORGANIZATION!

I got a priority mail package with a letter typed out and a cashiers check for $1870.00. The letter asked that I deposit the check, make two separate transactions for specified amounts and then I would be compensated $300 into my personal account.

I'm am including a attachment of what I received

I have received a letter with a check and was told to put it in my bank and do a mystery shop. I was then to keep $200 and send the rest back. This is actually the 3rd letter I have received like this. The other 2 I turned over to my bank. They all are from different companies and I have not signed up for it.

- Spring, TX, USA

I received a survey offer from [email protected] via for a WalMart Survey. As it was via SurveyMonkey, it appeared legitimate. I filled in requested information and soon received text message (with misspellings - suspicious) saying I had been selected. I then received a Priority Mail envelope with a check for $1,550 and instructions to deposit the check asap and to 1.Shop at WalMart (noting professionalism, etc.) and (best part) 2. to use WalMart Money Gram to transfer specific amounts to two different receivers. This all needed to be done within three days of depositing the check. The $200 (supposedly) remaining after the shopping and the wire transfers was to be my fee. I kept getting text messages asking to confirm I had received the "survey package." This is clearly a scam. The deposited check would have bounced, leaving me or anyone making the wire transfer per the instructions out the money wired with no recourse (and possibly liable for bank fees for the bad check). Oddly, the amount I was to spend and send exceeded the amount of the check. Ben Dards is supposedly the "Task Manager"; IntelliShop (It's About the Customer), the survey company; Trex Company, the business issuing the "check." Notably, when I returned to the original SurveyMonkey email and clicked on the link, the message "This survey is currently closed due to a violation of SurveyMonkey's terms of use.

I participate in local surveys/focus groups/product research groups and was contacted about a secret shopper task via Walmart. The company that contacted me checked out and everything looked legitimate as usual. I always research the companies I do this for as I know there are plenty of scams out there. I was sent a money order which seemed a little sketchy but my husband did his own research and determined that it seemed legitimate. I cashed the money order at my bank with no issue. The first part of the scam was to spend $20 at Wal Mart and record certain information (how long it took to check up, ease of finding products, how many employees spoke to you, etc). All of this was very similar to other tasks I have completed. I spent $20 on groceries I needed anyway and went to complete past 2 which was to send a money order. While making two attempts to do this something just seemed off. I went home and did not complete task 2, deciding I wanted to research it a little more. The next day my husband went to our bank to discuss this with them and ask if the money order was counterfeit, they told him they would check and if in fact it was we would not be charged any processing or overdraft fees, the money would just be deducted from our checking account. My husband took the cash we had originally received and deposited it within our checking account as a preemptive measure in case the money order was a fake. Meanwhile I was getting emails and texts from a "Bob McChristy" at the email I submitted asking me my progress. I noticed that they were increasing and the spelling/grammar was poor. I replied and informed them that I was checking the money order to make sure it wasn't counterfeit. They kept sending emails that didn't seem like a response to my email, but just canned emails sent at arbitrary intervals. My husband spoke with the post office and they confirmed the money order was counterfeit. Luckily we only spent $20 and it was money we would have spent anyways. The bank deducted $998 from our checking account when they confirmed this was a counterfeit money order. In hindsight, I should have never even cashed the money order and reported it immediately as it seemed a little shady, but the website checked out so I proceeded.

- New Albany, MS, USA

i was asked to be a secret shopper. when i deposited the check that was send to me in order to complete the task, it was cleared. When the money was withdrawn and the task was done, the check was blocked and the bank put my account in overdraft. $1850.00

Signed up for surveys with this company. They sent me a check and instructions for a secret shopper job. I tried to deposit the check as instructed. My bank could not get the routing number to pull up and told me the check was fake. They kept the check and turned it into the police.
