I filled out the info and received another email from Anton James telling me that a UPS delivery was coming to drop off supplies (evaluation forms etc) that I would need for the job. I would be paid $50-$150 per evaluation.

When the UPS never showed up I went to UPS website to track the delivery. The account # that Anton James supplied did not exist on UPS website. I didn't hear from him again until 11/13/2015.:

You were going to hire me for the same thing in October of 2014. You told me a UPS delivery was coming to my house. It never came. Also I looked up the account # you provided on UPS website and it didn't exist.

At this point I started to suspect it was a scam so I decided to go along with it as far as I could to get as much info as I could for authorities to look at.

I just need to get ink for the printer. I'm guessing that you are supplying the blank cheques?

Purchase blank cheques from where?

Anton James replied:

I want you to order the business size blank cheques online at the website below and you would be

reimbursed soon:

I want you to get any colour,100 sheets and do make it next day delivery latest

N:B : They should be Blank Computer Check Paper on Top

Do respond after ordered so we can proceed further and start asap


I did not respond any further or carry out his request. I'm guessing the cheques he wants me to print are going to other "Mystery Shoppers" that he is scamming.

I checked with MSPA website and Anton James is not on the Member Companies list. (http://***)

I hope this info helps.</***></***></***></***>
