Precision Research Inc You supposed to be a secret shopper for Western Union New York Ft. Worth, Texas
I recieved an email from this Precision Research Inc telling me about a secret shopper job I may be interested in. I filled out the application online and sent it. I got a response congratulating me for being hired as a Customer Service Evaluator and the representative of the company in my region. The approval letter came via USPS express mail. Inside the envelope is the letter and a cashier check of $1680 payable to me. It has the descriptions of my job and on the bottom are the companies I supposed to evaluate. They're MoneyGram, Western Union,Pizza Hut,GAP,McDonalds,Sears,Bell and Budget. My first assignment was for Western Union. I have $200 of the $1680 as my commission. $1480 I will go to a Western Un ion closest one to me and send $1350 to a Felix Lawrence: Address is 915 Hall Street Atlanta, Georgia 30310. $130 is for the Western Union charge for receiving in minutes. While I do the transaction I will do my observations. After I send the money I will come back home and email the MTCN and the exact amount to Dennis Grover. I went to my bank ( Chase) and they could not cash the check. They had to deposit until it clears the bank in Ft. Worth TX. Sorry I never makde a copy of the cashier check.
Next Morning 12/11/13 the bank cleared the check and I went down to the Western Union at the Boulder Station Casino and did exactly what I was instruted to do. I went back home and sent the information to Dennis Grover. Next day 12/12/13 I received another email from Dennis for my 2nd assignment. At about 10 am I received the envelope via UPS. Inside the envelope is a cashier check with the same amount $1680 and same indtructions but this time I was supposed to evaluate the Western Union at the Smith's on Flamingo and Sandhill. It was specifically picked in my email. I would do the same thing and same receiver in Atlanta, GA. I took the check to my bank and they did the same thing, held it until it's clear. But the Bank allowed me to take my $200 commission. The $1480 was there until next day for clearance. I sent an email telling Dennis Grover the situation with the check. While I was still on my laptop doing the email, I received a phone call from someone from Greenwich, NY with an accent which I did not really understand his first couple words I just went ahead and told him that I was not interested in any kind of Job because I am disabled. I said it because the last 2 months i've been harrassed by this kind of people speaking english with accent try to give me loans etc. But this guy finally repeated his statement and said how you like your secret shopper job. That's when I said wow this is about my job it's not one of those loan guys. He asked me if I made the Western Union transactions, I told him what happened and he said ok just send your email to Dennis Grover and next time they may do direct deposit into my account.
This morning 12/13/13 I checked my email and found one that Dennis sent saying to not delay my transactions go ahead and do it as instructed and report back to him via email with all the important information. So they will send another assignment for me. I made an automated phone call fro balance to my bank to see if the check was cleared,I was told by the automated machine that my checking balance was overthrawn by - $188(minus). I went staright to the bank and I was told that the check was bounced and I still owed that $188 from the $200 I received from the check. I came back and send the email to Dennis inquiring about the problem with the cashier check he sent. I also try to call him on the phone number he provided, it only went to answering services/automated. I got on Google and this is How I found out about this suspicious company.
