Consumer Research Group - CRG20002002 Glynn Avenue brunswick, Georgia United States of America
My husband recieved a check in the mail for $2,680.00 from a company by the name of CRG (Consumer Research Group) dated 11/30/2009.. They were claiming to be a mystery shopping company.
The gave specific details on what to do with the money, and one of the instuctions was to wire a large amount of it through Western Union. Here is the breakdown of the check they sent that are susposed to bearing the required funds for "the project"
1. Participation Pay $300.00
2. Western Union evaluation assignment $2,735.00
3. Service Fee charged by Western union $175.00
4. Retail Shop evaluation assignment(You keep the purchased goods) $150.00
If you can do math you can see that the total amount is $3,360.00 The check was only $2,680.00... Are they stupid or what?
The check looked very authentic, I MEAN VERY!!! We talked about it and went back and forth about whether or not we should cash it and participate. [continued below]....
Finally today I had enough, I jumped on my computer and googled this company and low and behold, what did I come across? A rip off report about similar to my situation! I also looked under the BBB to see if this company was registered, and it was not..
I called the numbers that were listed on the letter that came along with the check.. The operator stated on both numbers that THIS NUMBER DOES NOT EXSIST... I was like WOW!
Its mighty ironic that the address listed on the letter is 2002 glynn avenue Brunswick GA, because Glynn county is Brunswisk GA and thats the city my husband was born in!! Lol...
I am so glad I researched this company before we made the BIGGEST MISTAKE of or lives. Now I can rip the check up and not feel bad about it at all..
Folks do you research, dont fall for scams like this, because think about it, if we would have deposited this check into our bank account, we would be left footing the bill of a seriously overdrawn bank account and possibly facing jail time for a counterfeit check.
If you get anything from this company in the mail, THROW IT AWAY!!!! Dont even try to second guess yourself on this!!!
Have a great day!!!!!
