The letter said that I had 48 hours to complete the shop once the funds were available. Of course, I was anxious and excited because I was getting paid $300, plus they wanted me to shop at Best Buy, K-Mart or Walmart, spend $250, and keep my purchases as additional compensation. The other part of the job was to send a Western Union transfer for $875. I deposited the check, and kept out the money for the Western Union Transfer. I wanted to get started right away to prove I was a good resource.
I had to call a coordinator to get the name and location of the individual receiving the money. They were very kind and helpful ... they must be for real! I was given the name of Ruth Campbell in Kingston, Canada. The next day, I went to the Western Union at my local grocery store and dutifully sent $875 to Ruth. I paid great attention to all the details including the time I had to wait, the clutter on the counter, etc. I sat down right there in the store and filled out the report. Then I went shopping at Best Buy. I was very careful to spend as close to $250 as possilbe. I called and gave them the wire transfer number and was asked to scan and email all of the receipts. It was done the next day.
Four days later, I received a notice from my bank that I was overdrawn. The check for $1500 had been returned. I feel sick! I am normally very careful and thorough, but this time, the dollar signs blinded me. Don't let this happen to you. I am out $950 thanks to these scammers! That evening when I got home, I had another offer from Premium Marketing Research with a check for $1993. They want me to wire $1480. I think I'll pass!
