I applied for a job on line from a job board regarding a Mystery Shopper on Friday 10/12/2007 and on Monday Morning 10/15/2007 @9am I had Federal Express( not US mail as they don't want Federal mail charges if they get caught ) deliver to me a check for 980.00 along with a letter telling me that I got the job and that my first assignment would be to cash the check at my bank and then go to a locall Walmart and purchase a Money gram Money order for the following amount of 830.00 30.00 for fee & the remaining 120.00 was my payment for this service.
I was then to fax back to them the questionnier form that had the reference # for the moneygram and I should also email the # to them. Nowhere in the letter does it tell me to mail them the Money order. I then tried to lookup the company on the web by name, address, or the phone #s that they provided and nothing came up.
I then contacted the bank( Twin Rivers FCU) that the cashiers check was drawn on and they stated that this was a fake Cashiers Check and that they have had some other checks come to them and that other banks in the area have also been having the same thing happen to them. i was very lucky I did not do this but have contacted the Bank involved and Moneygram and am reporting to my local police department.
