I received the following letter in the mail this week. It includes a check in the amount of $3975.00 drawn against a LA CAPITAL F.C.U bank in Baton Rouge LA 70821 and questionnaire sheet to complete once the job is complete. It is postmarked in Canada. The old saying if it sounds/appears to good to be true, it probably is, well I thought that and glad I did some checking first. The letter has several grammatical errors. I have done work for several secret shopper companie and none have ever sent a check prior to completing the work it has always been a reimbursement program, so this was another RED FLAG.
Top of the letter has the letter head for JOBsolutions and an address of 620 Mendelssohn Ave N Suite 190 Minneapolis, MN 55427-431 Tel: 1-647-831-6536

The check is from LA CAPITOL F.C.U P.O BOX 3398 BATON ROUGE LA 70821 Dated August 10, 2009 NO. 234421 PURCHASED BY: Brenda Marshall unable to read the authorized signature
I did my research and of course found this to be a huge SCAM! I found numerous things saying they could have my banking information and I should contact my bank, so I did that and they noted on my account just in case and they told me that they have heard about this and it is known to be drawn against many different banks large and small and that I should contact my local authorities and/or the FBI, so the banks in my area could be made aware of this scam and so no one falls for this scam that could create a major headache for that person, as it could cause them to become a felon with a felony charge. I contacted my local county police department and they more less laughed at me and said there was nothing they could do about it.
I will not stop until I get this information into the proper hands. I do not want to hear of someone falling for this scam and me knowing I could have possibly prevented it from happening.
