I received a letter with an official check enclosed for $2900. The letter told me I was to be a Mystery Shopper for a Research program in my area. After this training program I would increase my salary to $400 per week for (3) months then $700 after (6)months of working for them.
I was to shop at a local K-Mart, Home Depot, Walmart or Lowes, then evaluate and then go to a Western Union or Money Gram company and evaluate their effectiveness.

this is how it was to be broken down..
1.) probationary training pay $200,
2.)Required Fund to be transferred, $2450.00 to a Benjamin Durant or Spencer Miles.
3.) Service Charges $120,
4.) Funds needed for Shopping $2900.
I was to fill out the enclosed form and fax it to 514-221-2117.

I called the number on the letter, spoke to a guy with a thick accent.when i questioned him about the money tranfer,he was very evasive in answering my questions.
I did some research and found the check was not valid, so beware.
