Fraudulant Check, Dont Deposit-mystery shopper

On August 11th I received a letter and Check in the amount of $4, 820.00. I called the Telephone # in BC and was informed I was choosen to become a Mstery Shopper and I would be paid to do so...I asked the thief (man I spoke to) how could i be assured this was not a scam.He told me"deposit the check it will clear and call me when it does" tasks as secret shopper involved walmart, Gap, and money transfers through western union and Money Gram.

..So as a silly person does-I deposited the check, Wow It cleared, within 2 days..I called my Bank and asked if the check was good as gold? I was assured by the rep., Yes as good as, so I was thinking hum....maybe this is legit. So I waited 1 more day after check clearing to call the thief back..guess what??
there was no answer, no answering machine.

This struck me strange so I called my Bank again., this time I spoke with a Lady who had dealt with this kind of scam before., She assured me the fraud dept.of the bank would advise me..and so I spoke for another 20 mins with That Lady who gave me some solid advice,

This whole process has been such a pain I now have my Bank account frozen, I have to go into my local branch and file a fraud application, I then have to go to the police dept.and file the fraud complaint..WOW...
I have learned my lesson-and I hope you read this before you deposit that (or any)Fraudulent checks.
Funny thing is......I am always warning other people about scams....LOL
