I received information from Shoppers Impressions Inc., thinking it was a company in which I inquired about to earn extra money, and they sent me a check along with explicit instructions on how to make extra money. Once I contacted the number given (289-242-2589, ext. 102), the "coordinator" informed me that I would be a probationary employee once the money was deposited. She instructed me to deposit the cashiers check ($4998) in to my personal bank account and when the bank released the funds (which they stated was procedure to hold a check of that amount), I was to contact them and be required to purchase $50 worth of merchandise from Wal-Mart, $40 worth of merchandise from The Gap and do two money transfers with Western Union and Money Gram. Being sceptical, I called every phone number that was given and it seemed to be legit, however when they say "too good to be true", it was! Even when contacting the bank "CASTROVILLE SAVINGS BANK" at 866-859-8372, which is located in Castroville, Tx., they assured me funds were available. However when I finally broke down and decided to deposit the check, I was totally humiliated when the bank manager informed me it was a SCAM and a way for this scam company to steal my identity and my bank account information!

I have always been extremely cautious and won't even pay bills on line due to the identity theft rate. I want to know how this company found me and knew to prey on individuals who are in need of earning extra income to care for their families?

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

I wanted to let you know that you are not alone! This happened to me last year in July. I was pregnant with my 3rd child and had previously worked as a "secret" shopper. I decided to go online and check out options. You never know what companies are legit and which are not. A few weeks later I received a check in the mail, my instructions were the same as yours. I looked up the company on the FBI's list, on consumer protection and on the BBB website. Nothing, I contacted the bank in which the check was from (I used the number on their web site and not the number on the check) I was told the check was legit. I waited a few days and took the check to the bank, which put the money into my account, I waited 2 weeks to do anything, once I took out the money to do what was needed of me, I called, did my "jobs" and then another week later I get a call from the bank stating that they took the $4998 and fees from my checking account.

Just feel lucky that the check never made it into your account, the bank I guess can legally call the police and have you charged with check fraud. At least they can here. I was threated, contact the FBI, the officer of consumer protection and the BBB. It will help others not get into this siutation.
