SEO Reputation Management at its best!

I got a letter in the mail from BES Research and a check for $3,535. I am supposed to deposit it into my bank account. The check is from Neuse Management LLC. I am to evaluate western union and wire $2,990 to an Aaron Shaw in New York City, NY 10001. I checked into it on this web site and I learned of another incident about the same Nuese Management LLc. Please help me. I could have got into alot of trouble had I gone through with it without checking on it first. The check is real , the company is real.They keep calling me to check if I deposited the money into my account yet.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

AUTHOR: Wikipedia - (U.S.A.)

Fraud
There exists a scam that uses mystery shopping as a premise for fraud, where a person is sent a bad check with a request to deposit it into their bank account, wire a portion of the money through a wire transfer company such as Western Union or MoneyGram and keep the remainder as a mystery shopping fee, and informed to mail the money immediately as the test is evaluating response time. People who wire the "remainder" discover the check is bad and lose the money they transfer and the wire transfer service fee in addition to the total amount of the check, often leaving them in debt to their banks. One scam involved fraudulent websites using a misspelled URL to advertise online and in newspapers under a legitimate company's name.

Valid mystery shopping companies will never send their clients a check to cash prior to work being completed, and their advertisements will usually include a contact person and phone number. Checks received from mystery shopping companies should only be in payment for work performed, and can always be taken to a bank to be verified. Most fraudulent cheques sent out by scam artists can be easily spotted and identified by a financial professional.

On February 3, 2009 The Internet Crime Complaint Center issued a warning on this scam. http://www.ic3.gov/media/2009/090203.aspx

Go ahead and deposit the check and send the money back. Then write back and tell us all how you like prison life. Geeeezzzzzz. This scam has been going on for so long that I'm amazed there are still idiots falling for it.

What do you need help with?

AUTHOR: Edgeman - (U.S.A.)

You seem to know that this is a scam. The logical step from there is not to deposit the check and cease contact with the scammers.
