The scammers would send an email on the look for secret shoppers. They asked for your name and address and phone (cell) no. Someone would send another email once info is provided to confirm info. They'll asked when you are ready to start. Once ok'ed, the scammers will send a postal money order for a certain amount. All what one to do is cash in the money order in one's bank account.
When money is available, the victim is asked to send via Western Union the cash equivalent of the money order to a name and address. The victim is also asked to answer a few question regarding how the transaction goes, even providing info how good the agent was, how easy to send the money, etc. The victim is also asked to send the money transfer remittance no. Out of this task, a few hundred dollars is given to the victim as a compensation for the task.
This modus operandi will continue doing the same task of receiving postal money order, cash it in and send money via Western Union to a name and address.
The postal money order being sent is fraudulent. Some banks will not clear and will tell you to go back to the postal office and verify the authenticity of the money order. When the victim finds out late, the bank will deduct all the equivalent cash made out of that fraudulent money order and the victim is left getting charged with all the money that was cashed in from those fraudulent money orders.
The scammers will just disappear when their scammed operation is exposed either by the victim asking why the money orders are being returned.
