Please see email

Chains below. This appears to be a scam. I had inquired quite a while back about secret shopper positions so I didn't think much about it. Then when I expressed concerns of legitimacy, they sent me the email below. I asked if they could sent credentials but only gave me fluff. I asked where to return the check but he has not responded. The address on the envelope which the check came to me is "Helene Huchital, 7704 Lexington Club Blvd, Apt B, Delray Beach, FL 33446-3956".

I also find it very suspicious that every email seems to come from a different email address every time they send something...

While they did not ask for money from me I find it suspicious that they are asking me to send over $1500 over seas to China. Not to mention asking me to obtain a cashiers check from my financial institution and then scan and email it to them. Just weird.

To be frank, I receive the package and this doesn't sound legit. Especially asking me to purchase a cashiers check and scan it to you.

What credentials can you provide to prove you are an actual accredited company to provide these services.

Red rain agrees to pay you for advertising with a car wrap that goes on your car. They give you a check and you keep some and then you forward the rest. A company will never ask you to do that.

Type of a scam Charity

A college-aged man showed up at my door telling me that he lived in the building and he was involved in a program in which he would get people to buy magazines to send to troops/books to send to kids, and that if he got enough points he would get a grant for textbooks. He was very well-spoken and convinced me to write a check for $55, telling me that I would get a call later in the day and could cancel then if I chose to. He wrote down the name of the company and a website and gave me an ID number with which I could cancel, but then left with that information. I realized about five minutes later that he hadn't left me the info, at which point I realized it was probably a scam, but he was nowhere to be found. Needless to say I haven't received any call. I had a stop put on the check, but that was all I could do because I didn't have the information about the company.

I called the number initially, but found it suspicious that the individual first did not know I had a Macintosh computer instead of a PC, made no mention of a company when answering the phone, and sounded odd. I hung up, and received 3 consecutive calls from an unknown number. I did not answer. I then called Comcast's technical support number for assistance and was directed to report this incident to the FTC and the IC3.

Type of a scam Romance

Met on Match.Com. All contact was thru messaging. No phone contact. He claimed he was driller engineer currently working in Melbourne, Australia. Had homes in Italy, Greece and just bought a home in California. Fast tracked romancing to point where he was about to ask for money. Sent music with his poetic romantic emails. I sensed this request was coming as all the signs were there. Got nervous when I told him I traveled to Greece and Turkey, and that I was somewhat clairvoyant.

Type of a scam Credit Repair/Debt Relief

To whom it may concern:

I received a very official appearing (government-esque) letter in the mail, describing a new student loan assistance program (SLAP)- photo below. I haven't received any other communication that I know of. It suggests a program that will reduce my debt by over 100k- too good to be true. Online there are various reports of people receiving similar mailings, so I will not be contacting the company as it seems like a scam. Thanks for your assistance in shutting these people down!!

Sincerely,

Shelley

Electronic message that IRS is starting a lawsuit against me and to call 800-311-5961 to resolve the matter. I did not call the number back since I know IRS does not contact people in this manner. A google search of the phone number showed others have received this same scam call. Since I did not call the number back there was no attempt to gain information or money.

Person called and said I had been approved for a grant. I contacted the company about one. He told me I had been approved and it would take $395.00 to secure it. I complied. Later, a lady called and said I would receive the money in January. I did not, but there is a 90 day period in which they will attempt to recover your money. I was trying to obtain finances for roofing my house. I found that the money I sent went to Craigslist in California. I have no internet and do not buy from that site.
