I received a email in reference to my resume on a local job agency and stated I was a potential candidate for the Mystery Shopper job. I received a check for $980.00. They told me to cash the check at my bank or wherever and to send the $830.00 to a so called relative of mine in Canada. No ref. number or anything just their name and Ontario Canada. Seems strange right? I thouight so, so I called the bank on which the check was drawn on and verified the funds...the automatic phone service said it hadn't cleared the bank. So I called Moneygram headquarters to verify the check and they hire Mystery Shoppers and if they could verify this company. THe lady told me they are not affiliated with them and entered the check info and it was definately a BAD CHECK!!! It looks real! But she confirmed it was bad. And this is a hoax. I contacted the news so that they can notify everyone to BEWARE.
