I received an email requesting MYSTERY SHOPPERS in my area. I had signed up for a database prior so did not think anything of replying with intrest. I was asked for my address and phone number. I received a second email meant to verify that I had indeed received it and to respond with "OK I GOT IT!"

Following that came another email with detailed instructions on my "assingment" that I was supposed to complete along with a Fedex tracking number for the money order that was being sent to me. I was to receive $1910.00 and instructed to keep $200 as my wages and MYSTERY SHOP at any WESTERN UNION location. I was to send $1710.00 via western union to an orphanage in Amarillo Tx to the attention of LISA NASH. 

After all of this, I started to wonder if this was ligitiment. The emails were very poorly written and that seemed odd! I googled the name SMITH COLE MYSTERY SHOPPER and the first thing that popped up was RIPOFFREPORT.COM.

I came home to find the envelope was delivered by fedex Overnight priority! There were indeed 2 money orders totaling $1910.00. I immediately called moneygram customer service and learned that the serial numbers for these money orders had been cashed last month.

Luckly, I researched the guy and found out it was a scam before it was too late. PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THESE KIND OF THINGS! IT OBVIOUSLY HAPPENS TOO OFTEN IF THIS GUY IS STILL DOING THE SAME SCAMS!!!!!
