I received a very realistic letter in the mail today with a real check for $7400.00 from a company called Global Marketing Services, Inc out of Canada. It said that I had been selected to be a Secret Shopper, and to call them to activate the check and begin my 1st assignment. I was to cash the check at my bank, then transfer the money to them with a money gram, keeping $1000. of it as my payment. The name of the account on the check is Fairleigh Dickinson Managment, 1003 River Road, Teaneck, NJ 07666. It was for Commerce Bank.

I called Commerce Bank and they verified that is a real company with a checking account in their bank.
I called the company, but they never authorized any such check, so if I had cashed it, as soon as my bank found out they would not pay it, I would have been stuck for the $7400.00, which is why they say to transfer the money within 48 hours of cashing it.

I then did a google search and found this website with similiar scams. Thank GOD I did not fall for it, or it would have ruined me, since I don't have a penny to my name as it is.
