I worked for Service Measure LLC with a w2 and everything. They are apparently an outsourced company that works for google. My job was being a Google Streetview Driver. Sounds pretty cool and it actually was.
Well when I started it was 40 hours a week Monday through Friday guaranteed and if it rained we still were paid. Of course if the weather was bad we had still had to check in every hour and monitor the weather and do routine maintenance on the vehicle if there was any due. Well, last week we had 5 days of rain. Which for the most part I got to stay home, sometimes I had to drive to my mapping zone and wait in the car to see if there was an opportunity to map but there wasn't. 5 days all rain. We'll Friday rolls around and I get an email from my employer that they are changing the rules about us still getting paid if it's raining. Go figure. What's even worse is that they were also making hours that I would've been paid for the previous week not count! I was relying on that money and they are completely screwing me. I'm still trying to take action against them as it's very recent but these people are crooks.

- Wayne, NJ, USA

I received a LinkedIn request from someone my husband knew. I accepted and she recommended a Secret Shopper job. I applied, received congratulations and a FedEx package with a cashiers check.

Little did they know my background in an AML Dept. at a bank. Fraudulent cashiers check was sent to the bank on the cashiers check.

Find these people and put them in jail!!

The scammer connected me via LinkedIN messenger. Since I have thousands of professional connections, and I don't check the background of each one, it went undetected that the person who was pretending to be a college professor was a scammer. I did reply to the message and told the "professor" that I hope it was a legit business and would look into it. I did get desperate for a job and went on to sign onto the website. But I decided to check out the professor's name on the school's website and noticed there was no such faculty member...I did sent a link of the university and her that I couldn't find her. In the meantime, I started to receive emails from the company. I told then that I was no longer interested. Then I immediately received a text message. Again, I told them I'm not interested & sent them an email. It wasn't until this person kept texting me I told him that I would not reply to his messages. He texted me again to tell me that they sent me something and what should they do with and that is when I cursed him out like a sailor and told he was a scammer...and blocked him. Days later I received a priority mail from Service Measure with a $2,850.00 check. They provided instructions with how I should spend it and keep $400 as my salary. I immediately wrote void on the check and reported this scam to the Unites States Postal Service, since this classifies as mail fraud.(When I looked up the address online, it looks like a regular house. the scammer might have used any one's address.) I did report the profile to LinkedIn. I also plan to follow up with them. I went to click back on the message, and surprise, the profile member no longer exists. It's also a shame that LinkedIn has become like *** and *** now.

- Aurora, CO, USA

Using a lead-in as "Mystery Shopper", this scheme starts as a typical remote-work lead looking for contractor agents.

After sharing my contact information, just as much as for any other job lead online, I was contacted via SMS. The emails never delivered, but a text-message conversation ensued over the next few days.

Sender: "Please check your email for the 'Approval Message' (reply to the email to proceed) [...] Thank You. John Barnes!!" [sic]

After a couple of days, I still had no email matching the subject mentioned. When asked to verify, the sender did respond with my correct email address. It's unclear what happened, but entirely possible that my ISP has filtered such messages at the relay. (doesn't even appear as 'spam', it just never arrives)

The sender took my inquiry as a cue to proceed with the next step, and then responded with this boilerplate message (identity redacted as ***):

SENDER: Good day, ***, The package for your first assignment which includes instructions on how to complete your task have been mailed out and will be delivered to you today with FedEx tracking #: xxxxxxxxxxxx, kindly text back confirming you got this text. Thank you.

The tracking number (redacted here) was a legitimate FedEx delivery, and arrived on time. The package had been sent two days prior, but I wasn't notified that it was being sent. Notice the timing, they only told me about on the day of expected delivery. (shady)

The package was a 'flat' with exactly two documents inside; a printed letter and a document with 'CASHIER'S CHECK' on it.

The letter is printed on standard, white paper, black print; no letterhead. The top of the letter displays a graphic logo that matches the website, but no name appears next to the logo. (unusual)

The letter is addressed, "Attn: Prospective Mystery Shopper" (why am I getting a check if I am only 'prospective'?)

Apart from the marketing speak, the first paragraph includes these directions: "You are required to deposit the check using mobile deposit app or at your bank or ATM, and funds will be available the following day, but you can go ahead with the task same day check is deposited." [sic]

Notice that the instructions lead you to use post-verified deposit methods, (picture deposit, ATM deposit) which can be rescinded days later after the check bounces, even though the bank will temporarily credit your account with the deposit amount for checks up to $5,000 value that *appear* legitimate.

The "mystery shopper task" in this case was to purchase high-value gift cards from a "local APPLE STORE in your city". (no specific store, just any Apple Store-- also very shady)

They show their math, where the value of the cards you would purchase add-up to the value on the check, and the promised 'payout' is the difference left over. However, when the check bounces, none of that money is actually real. (except your own money)

The final instruction is to "send a text and images of the cards to (937) 660-5459" which in the case of these gift cards, shows the codes and numbers needed to spend them. In other words, just sending pictures of the cards will be like sending the cash contained on the cards. The number here actually matches the sender of the SMS text messages, but may also be spoofed in some way. (at least it's consistent)

Any instructions following that would be irrelevant; the scammers have already won. The fake check worked, you bought them high-value gift cards for reputable-brand products (easily fenced on the open market, like ebay) and you're the one stuck with a negative balance. For a lot of people, getting hit by this scam just once is enough to ruin your life.

The bottom of the letter has a one-line closing, showing the name "Wanda Rhodes Ph.D" [sic], this person is deceased.

Brenda ***(someone I don’t know) contacted me on LinkedIn and messaged me the following:

Hi There,

I hope this finds you well. A firm is seeking people to become mystery shoppers in your area. It entails going into stores as an under cover agent, to carry out an evaluation of the store and then report back. You will be paid for each store you evaluate and you can do it as many times as possible. It can be done part time or full time basis and it takes just about 15 minutes (from the time you enter the store) of your time. Contact Mr. Carl *** *.. (Carld*** or click on the link below to learn more and get started.***drbE



Then I got the text messages one after another along with email about a package being delievered. I have not cashed it. They sent me a FedEx overnight package out of nowhere.

- Harlem, GA, USA

Was looking online for an opportunity to make a little extra money for the holidays. Found an advertisement for a secret shopper that payed $250 per assu. I looked up the company online and did a little investigating and everything looked good so I sent an email and was contacted about an assignment with computer letterhead. I was told I would be sent a check with an assignment letter and to deposit the check and follow the instructions. I did all asked and the next day my bank notified me of an overdraft. The check that was deposited was returned and the money for the purchases was taken out of my account.
