Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

Received check for $2450.00 and was asked to give personal information after i deposited the check to [email protected] and call 205-931-4536. I was to cash the check and "secret shop" Walmart, buy gift-cards and tell about my experience, keeping some of the money as my fee. The teller at the bank told me this is likely a scam, and that i should call the ScamPulse.com and report.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

Received a email through my school email account looking for Secrect Shoppers. I responded to the email for emplyment. Weeks later I received a cashiers check in the mail with instructions on how to carry out my first assignment. I deposted the check into my checking account and withdrew my fee for my services. The next day or two I went back to my bank to withdraw the remainder of the money to purchase gift cards as a secrect shopper, but there was a hold placed on my account and the account has been flagged as fraudulent. The thing that disturbs me the most is that this is a brand new account that I had just opened less than 30 days ago and now it has been flagged with fraudulent activity. I am so upset. This situation is still pending with the bank. I contacted the scammer and they are saying that the cashiers check is good.

Type of a scam Counterfeit Product

Have had friends that did real mystery shopping. Thought this was it but when it arrived with a check (looks real) for over $2000 and a mish mash of directions I went to Google and found it under Walmart scams immediately. Different name on usps envelope. No addresses that look real. Only text message numbers. WALMART DOES NOT USE MYSTERY SHOPPERS!!!!!

Was sent a text message referring to my first assignment and a cashier's check in the amount of 1370.00. Am suppose to deposit and make purchases of gift cards, totallying up 1,100.00. another one in the amount of 50.00. And send copies of the PIN numbers because to the email address provided.

To me it didn't feel right that someone would just hand over that amount without any other forms or questions.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I was contacted through my college email by an email from someone that supposedly works there with a referral to a legit shadow shopper job. I applied and a few days later got a message saying my first assignment was on the way through the mail. So I received an assignment and a check of $1980 to send $800 to someone in Albany, NY through Moneygram and $830 to someone in Austin, Texas. When I got a message from the scammer to confirm I received the mail and if I did the assignment in the first 24 hours I would get a plus of $100. Checking online I noticed that there is a website with a similar name that is legit but the scammer website had a jigsy in the middle. The letter has on top the name "SECRET SHOPPERS" and they pay you supposedly $250 to complete the task. In the same letter, they asked to send a copy of the slips and the reference number. The email to contact them is [email protected] and [email protected]

I got a text message stating that I had been chosen to be a secret shopper and should get a packet in the mail with instructions on what to do. A couple of days later I got a packet with a list of instructions and a check for $1378! They wanted me to cash the check and then send $1000 to William Gagwoski in Austin Tx through Walmart2Walmart. I was to spend $50 and keep the rest as payment. I put the check through the shredder!

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

While looking for means of extra income I came across a website that would pay to evaluate local businesses. A few later a certified check showed up at my address in the amount of 1980.00 with a letter with instructions on how to complete a few tasks. They told me to deposit the check and wait a few hours for it to clear than wire back 2 different sums in the amount of 840.00 to 2 different locations and keep the difference. After depositing the check my bank put a 48 hour hold on the money. After the 48 hours the check was returned for insufficient funds. Since that point a gentlemen by the name of David Montag has been harassing me with threats of prosecution if I don't complete the tasks and wire the money. I never sent any money at any point however this gentleman will not cease and desist with his threats.

A secret shopper job opportunity was initially sent to me via email from an employee of my school district. I inquired and several days later I was sent a text asking for my mailing address to send out my first assignment. Several days later my first "assignment" was sent. In the packet was a check and instructions. I was to deposit the check, shop at Walmart and wire money to Patrick Escalante in Binghamton New York.

On Craigslist, they post a job saying you can make money by being a secret shopper. They send a check (in my case it was for $997). I was supposed to go to Walmart and buy any item under $50, as well as order a Moneygram. This was to be done within 24 hours of me receiving their check and instructions by Priority Mail.

I was to buy a Moneygram for $600 and send it to Richard Luke in Binghamton NY, 13905. I was to keep $397 for my time and travel expenses.
