I received a letter from. Brookfield Consumer Research Center, with the letter, a check in the amount of, $4,250.00, i read the letter, I called the number on the letter, just like the letter informed me to do, I WAS TOLD TO SPEND $60.00 AT Walmart, do a survey, and then go to two different Money Gram Places,get one moneygram in the amount of $1860.00, and the other one in the amount of $1800.00. This was suppose to be done once the check was cashed orr deposit in my account, also $400.00 was mines, $130.00 was for the money grams. After Igot off the phone I had a Rep ID#928574499, I Aso had the person I spoke with name: Sarah Willis, My bank informed me that the check was returned, and mailed me a duplicate copy of it, I tried contacting the company, I TOLD THEM THE CHECK WAS NOT ANY GOOD, so I was told to hold on, and the telephone will hang up, right now I still don't have any contact with this company.

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

Someone sent you a check out of the blue, and you both assumed they were valid?

This is one of the biggest scams out there and you both got scammed. They prey on people who do just what you did.

Next time check things out first - A quick internet search on your part would have told you this was a scam
If you had - you would not be in the predicament now.

You have to actually apply to be a mystery shopper - no one is going to send you a check to do mystery shopping unless you have applied for and been hired to do that.

No lottery is going to send you a check to pay your taxes with, those taxes will be deducted from your winnings before you see a dime of that money.

Try using a little common sense and these things will not happen.

On the ROR homepage - they have a tab "TOP RIPOFFS TO AVOID"
the last item on the list is DO NOT DEPOSIT ANY CHECK YOU WERE NOT EXPECTING!
