Riverdale Marketing Research RMR, I was convinced that I was accepted to be a Secret Shopper, They informed me that based on the previous survey by their affiliate Consumer Survey Specialists, that I had indicated interests, New York, New York
*General Comment: Hamilton Research Group
There was a check enclosed for $1993.00. They claimed that this research program is a fully paid program and would become a permanent part time position for a selected few who are able to distinguish themselves in the course of this program. They claimed that I was being paid $350.00 as my salary for this training assignment. I would also be assigned a different job every week based on my performance.
There were 2 assignments on this check: 1) I would have to evaluate any local Western Union store in my area as a way of rating their competence and good customer service relations by doing a funds transfer to the Area manager, David Hambrick at the International Head Office at 3 Santa Monica, CP: 28043 Madrid Spain. The 2) assignment was to takeout the sum of $70 for shopping at one of the retail stores listed below: Walmart, Walgreens, KMart, Sears, Costco and more. The items I were to buy were mine as a bonus.
The enclosed check for $1993.00 broke down to:
1) My salary $350.00
2) Survey funds to be transferred $1480.00 + 93.00 send fees + 1,573.00
3) Funds needed for shopping $70.00
Total : $1993.00
This check was returned as a fraud through my bank and my entire accounts were froze for 2 weeks! I have no money to live off! Also My bank has basically denied me to ever have any accounts with them ever! I have been been so humiliated! and broke now for another week and a half! I am on medical leave with no access to my accunt now! Thanks to these @#$holes!
