I was sent a letter on 6/22/12 with a check inclosed in the amount of $1,468.00. Stating I had been Accepted as a Secret Shopper. My first assignment I was to take $980.00 plus the$68.00 fee and send it to the Area Manager Mario Webster. Then I was to call Frank Armstrong or Tracy Robert to tell them I had used the Green Yellow and White Send Form and the M.T.C.N. number.

Assignment#2= I was to take the amount of $70.00 to use for shopping at any one of the stores of my choice on their list Walmart, Walgreen, K-Mart, Costco, Home Depo, Best Buy, or Office Depo. All Items are mine that I purchase as a bonus then I am required to fax them all retail and transfer reciepts for verification purposes. The other $350.00 was my payment for doing these tasks.

I signed the check over to my mom then it was deposited into my moms account as I didnt have an account and she was trying to help me. The check pended, Processed, then so we thought cleared. We withdrew the $350.00 for my pay and the $70.00 for the shopping! I used that money. The next morning, We went to the Bank to withdraw the final amount to be sent to them. To our demise the account was $455.12 overdrawn! I Immediatly rushed home and called Frank Armstrong he then asked for my mothers name and the phobe numver to the bank he then stated for me to call him back in a half hour that he was going to call the bank to straighten this out. I called him back in a half hour Frank Armstrong then told me to call him back in another half hour he was still talking with the bank. I tried to call them back its been now 2 &1/2 days they wont answer the phone I get their answering machine! Im in the hole overdrawn with my moms bank $455.00! This isnt right! I am a honest person living on Social Security and I was trting to do something good to help my family of 8 people 4 of them being small children whom are mine! I dont understand this please help!

yep, scammed

AUTHOR: GeorgeV - (USA)

you were lucky you didnt send any money thru western union or money gram, these people have a business of scamming people by sending bad or fake checks and having you send them real money via WU or MG. the secret shopper job is nothing more than a made up position to make u think your employed and making money. the checks are eithier stolen,forged, or on an account that is non existant etc. most people take the money out of their accounts and send most overseas and spend the rest, then the bank comes after them for the bad checks.
