Complaint Review: Mystery Marketing. Insurance Premium Financing, Inc.
Mystery Marketing. Insurance Premium Financing, Inc.2405 St Laurent Blvd Ottawa, Massachusetts Canada
Mystery Marketing. Insurance Premium Financing, Inc. Scamming people with fake mystery shopper jobs and no-good checks Ottawa Ontario Canada
*Consumer Comment: This is indeed a SCAM
The letter states that I should keep $150. as pay for shopping; spend $300 at Walmart, Macy's, Target, etc.; use $144 for Western Union fees; wire them $3000 to test the employees at Western Union. The letter promised future assignments if I successfully complete the assignment.
The letter was mailed from Canada. The address on the letterhead is in Sioux Falls, SD. The check is drawn on an account in Lynn, MA. The phone numbers are Canadian area codes.
They claim in the letterhead to be a member of American Survey Research Organizations. I emailed this group and they said it is a scam; they are not members.
I called Eastern Bank. They said Insurance Premium Financing is thier customer but that there was not sufficient funds to cover the check. I told the bank of my concern of a scam and that they may be sued if they didn't look into it after they were made aware of the probability that people could lose thousands. They asked me to fax them copies of the letter and check. I did.
I called the Canadian phone number and it sounded like a boiler room operation with a lot of voices in the background, The man on the phone had an answer for every one of the 30 or so questions I asked him, though few of his answers made any sense.
People need to be warned.
