On February 17,2014 I received an e-mail from email@example.com stating that a check for the amount of $2,572.05 was sent to my home address. The check was received the same day through USPS.
Instructions were to deposit the check for $2,572.05 immediately retain $250.00, and transmit the remaining $2,320.00 less fees through Western Union to:
Alberto Guillen, 156 Dawson Road, Austin, TX 78610
I was to report back to My Guillen with my experience conducting this mystery shopper engagement Here is what happened:
I deposited the check for $2,572.05 on 2/18/2014 into my checking account.
The next day I checked my balances and this amount was indeed in my account.
The same day, 2/19/2014 I transmitted $2,144.00 ($2,320.00 - $176 Western Union transfer fee) to Mr. Guillen.
On 2/20 2014 Mr. Guillen’s check for $2,572.05 was returned due to “uncollected funds” AFTER he had received $2,144.00 from Western Union.
I have tried to connect with Mr. Guillen but to no avail.
This is an alert for anyone contemplating doing business with My Guillen or Mystery Shoppers Inc.
