Hmm let's see. "Mystery Shopper, Inc." signed their little scam-mail as "Secret Shopper," with a registered trademark on it. The one and only way we have any idea at all who this is, is that they want us to reply to a "Karen Johnson" @ AOL. I wonder how many "Karen Johnsons" there are in the world. Probably almost as many "Karen Smiths" LOL.
For those who are not familiar with the mystery shopping scam, they'll send you a bad check for $2,000 to $5,000 on good paper, which is good enough to fool anyone's bank. It has all the security features and everything, so your bank might give you the cash, if you're using your account. I don't think mine would, because the tellers at my bank would want it to clear first. Not all banks are like that yet, and the scammers know that. It's a financial loophole that they take advantage of.
Well if an "assignment" pays $200, why don't they just send you a check for $200? It's because they want you to send them 90 percent of the check in cash by Western Union, and you get to keep 10 percent as your "assignment fee." Well then the check bounces higher than the Moon, and neither the bank nor Western Union will accept responsibility. Viola! You're on the hook for the cash you sent to the scammer, and they get away scot free. For lots more of these scam samples, Click Here, and please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated.
