I recieved a check in the mail for $3,996.00. It came in a plain white business envelope with no return address. It was postmarked from Canada. (www.canadapost
. ca/wwwpostecanada.ca) and had a canadian stamp affixed to it.
The check was from a company called Viaero Wireless (1224 W Platte Ave., Ft Morgan, CO 80701. The bank that issued it was US BANK located in Harve, MT.
The letter was to inform me that I had been selected to be a 'Mystery Shopper'. The letter head had the APEX GROUP~ a Subsidiary of~ Viaero Wireless posted at the top. I was instructed to contact a co-ordinator, Jennifer Smith, at 514-559-3126 for confirmation, authorization and activation of my check. As well as to please FAX all copies of my reciepts, evaluation form and MONEY TRANSFER RECIEPTS to 1-888-502-7672.
Upon acceptance of this offer, I would be required to complete a PAID TRAINING/SELF TRAINING within one week. The TRAINING would include EVALUATING retail establishments such as WALMART, K-MART, HOME DEPOT, SEARS, JC PENNY and BEST BUY, to identify and compare popular products and prices.
The second half of the EVALUATION would be to TRANSFER MONEY ($3,156.00) via WESTERN UNION/MONEYGRAM to an Un-specified reciepiant.
A breakdown of the enclosed check is as follows:
1.) Probationary training $450.00
2.) Funds for shopping $100.00
3.) Service charge for Western Union/MoneyGram $290.00
4.) Required Funds to be sent $3,156.00
So basically I would get $450.00 to walk into a store, buy something for under $100.00, rate it, then commit a FEDERAL OFFENCE (LAUNDERING?) by TRANSFERING MONEY from an Unknown person/organization to an Unknown person/organization? WOW! Such a DEAL!
