Like all the others I have recently read a friend sent me a link online to make extra money. I followed the link from my LinkedIn account and went to new website. Upon completion now about 2 weeks later I have received text from 2 different number urging me to start my assignments. Won’t answer many questions just continue the assignments. The check is for $2000 and they want me to buy cards and scratch the stripes off and send it to them. Not happening

I wanted a job that I could do my own hours , saw an email to do secret shopping. Sounded like a great job for me. Well yesterday i get a check in the mail for 2,365.00

Instantly alarms went off in my head. What company would send a check for such a huge amount to someone they don't know.

. I received a letter via United States mail priority 2 day mail addressed in my name with a letter from the Brandt group and a check for $2,450 saying they're going to pay me $200 to go spend this money at Walmart and as soon as I deposited the check into my bank account to send them a text and then when the funds were available to send them another text and that they would send me information on what I was supposed to do at Walmart. The check does not look real if you pay attention to it

Type of a scam Employment

My mother and I saw a job offer on social media for a Secret Shopper for Walmart. We live in a small town with only a Walmart and Safeway. I signed up on the website linked that looked unlike other Walmart websites that I have been on. Red flag. I was desperate for money so I complete the simple application which was just my name and address and phone. I then got a message from a random number asking if I “received my package with my payment and assignment letter” . Red flag. Payment before I even started? Luckily, my address I provided doesn’t receive mail since it is a business. I never got the letter and the check by the number continues to send me the same message, “applicant, pleas report on the status or your assignment”. The number never replied to my messages to them. I am a lucky one who did not get the letter and check intended for me and I didn’t deposit the fake check that goes along with this scam,

I received an email through my work email from Career Builder saying there were secret shopper opportunities available in my area. I filled out a survey and they said I qualified to be a secret shopper. Soon, I received an envelope via FedEx with my first secret shopper job in it. It had an instruction sheet and a check for $998 in the envelope. The job was to cash the check, then go to Walmart and fill out a report on the Walmart store itself, spend $50 on groceries and review the individual checking me out, then go to MoneyGram in Walmart and send a certain individual $650 and then the rest of the cash is the payment for the secret shopping. I followed the instructions and sent in reports. Soon afterward, I decided to research the company online and discovered it was a scam. A few days later, the check came back as fraudulent.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

Lolitta Mills- from Greensboro, NC 27405 found me on my email and because I’ve been looking for work from home programs and she had sent me a few text messages tell me what is coming in the mail and what I need to do was to follow this program which was secret shoppers. So I got the letter in the mail and the large check and a sheet telling me what exactly I need to do. So I went to the store Walmart and I found the instructions on what it told me to do. I purchased the items, once that was done. I was to buy something for 50 bucks and two items for 30 bucks. So I did all those things. The last part was to hurry up and get the rest of the money and go to the Walmart counter and go to Walmart to Walmart and give them the amount of $1500 and send it back to them the rest of the money and the stuff that I purchased was mine to keep so I thought. Turns out then when it was in my bank account for two days and I put it in my savings where I had nothing in there anyway and I was hoping the bank Would have it cleared within two days to make sure the check was good. Come to find out it takes 10 days to clear a pony check. The bank didn’t tell me that though and neither did she but she really wanted me to hurry up and get it done because she knew if I didn’t complete the whole thing in one day she wouldn’t get her money and I would get screwed and that’s exactly what happened. But she didn’t get her money and I got screwed! So now I have to pay the $300 back that she told me I could have to purchase items with. Which is an too bad because I had to do was return the items I purchased at Walmart and I was good to go . Thank goodness I bought stuff that I could return. Not food I did not buy that. But anyway I was still screwed over by having to pay $300 back to the bank for a phony check how about that watch out people there are out there to scam you everywhere you go. I had to eat at $300 that’s for sure !
