I received an email stating that the accounting position I applied for is no longer available so they have decided to offer me the position of Regional Mystery Shopper.  Compensation is stated as $250.00 per survey and a monthly bonus of $2,500.00. 

No information about the company is provided except for the name of Darrick Champion, Mystery Shopping Consultancy and an email of dccp912@hotmail.com.

This is obviously a scam.  I did not apply for an accounting position with this company and any legitimate company has a legitimate email address including the name of the company. 

I don't know what these guys are after, but I'm guessing that they want me to do surveys and then will refuse to pay me, or they will try to sell me something.  The web site is for a company selling software.

It's so insulting to get these kinds of offers from liars who think I am stupid enough to jump right into it!

Thank you, Larry

AUTHOR: Concerned Small Business - (United States of America)

Thanks, Larry, for confirming my suspicions about this email being a scam.  I learned a few years ago the hard way that transactions involving Western Union are most likely scams.  Since the email I got said I would be mystery shopping places like Target and Western Union, your explanation makes perfect sense.

Thank you again for your confimation.

Wrong and Right

AUTHOR: Larry - (U.S.A.)

You are right that this is a scam.  You are wrong about what the scam is.

What they will do is mail you a check for about $2900.  The check will look legitimate and will be drawn on the account of a real business (but the name of the business will not be the name of your "employer's" business).  They will tell you to deposit the check into your checking account, keep some of it for yourself, then start mystery shopping by purchasing some trinkets at Target and then wire about $2500 to your "employer" because you are mystery shopping Western Union.

After the money has been wired your bank will inform you that the check you deposited into your account was written on a closed account.  Your bank will demand that you return the money you took out and they will not be nice about it at all.  You will have no way of recovering the money you sent by Western Union or even finding out where it went.  You could even find yourself at the center of a criminal investigation.

You did the right thing by refusing to bite the bait.
