This company sent me 1 Cashier's Check in the amt of $2850.00 for me to receive $200 as a mystery shopper and send the rest to an address they list as another Mystery Shopper in the Philippines.  I am to cash the check at my bank (right) and my assignment is to evaluate a Western Union location.  Send the remainder $2650 to this other person.
The check came with a printed letter with the instructions and this name and number; James Giles 323-375-7061.
The USPS ExpressMail had a click-n-ship label from Kristen Pate, 516 Lupine Ct., Benicia, CA 94510-3723 and the check is from First Financial Bank in Abilene, Tx.
Of course I am not doing anything with the check.
They got my information from either my Monster or CareerBuilders resume.

I received this today as well...identical to yours. I was going to do it though because I'm not using any of my money, how could it be a scam? He told me to cash the check and keep $200 not to take out any of my own funds.
This is where I become confused as to how I would be scammed. Please help me and others who may become victim to these UPS deliveries.
