Got a letter in the mail  with no return address and noticed it had two odd stamps from Spain. I open it and it says its an acceptance letter from Rapid-Profile Inc. to be a mystery shopper powered by best buy, ikea, western union and walmart. It included a almost legitimate looking check for almost 2k. It required i activate the check through theyre website with my job ID #and password, which they provided in the letter.

Lucky for me I was suspicious from the beginning and checked the address of the company. I found another scam report on the same scam but named Insula Corp at the same address. Unfortunately for the person who fell prey to Insula corp, they were asked to deposit the check and as soon as the funds were available she had to wire the money to a strange place as part of the assignments. Days later the check bounces and leaves them 2k poorer.

Rapid-Profile Inc. continuation:

AUTHOR: UtahVyper53 - (United States of America)

I just received this letter today in the mail that contained a check that looks so real and made on Chase Bank which I bank with so I knew right off that this had to be a scam because of the routing number is totally different then the Chase Bank I deal with. The check is made out in my name and address for the amount of $1989.43 which I also noticed that it began with my exact last four of my Social Security number and the cents was almost the year of my birth. I went here to check to see if it was a scam and found a report which I am adding to as additional help for those who are suspicious and wants to report this company. What I found here was exactly the same company name and address with the same stamps from Spain which are fake stamps as well (so they were able to mass produce these) and they was able to get them mail to anyone who went online looking for a Work at Home Job. If you filled at an application with this work at home company that they had their add placed with then they got your information and was able to send you this check. The only difference I noticed in my letter is they didn't (this time anyway) ask me to wait until the funds cleared and send them to some other place outside or inside the United States but instead to go to the sponsored company's like Wal-mart, Costco, Sears, Best Buy, and Home Depot and use the money to buy what ever I wanted and keep the items as a Bonus and the Fax the receipts to 1-714-644-8376 or email a copy of them to coordinator@rapidprofileinc to get my next assignment. If I would have followed there instructions I really wouldn't have lost any money since I had the product and the receipt which I could have returned and got my money back and repaid the bounced check if and when it bounced except lost the amount of the bounced check fee. I think they were trying to get a little bit more cleaver this time by doing it this way so that when you made your deposit in your account they may have been able to retrieve your banking information and later on withdrew additional funds from your existing account. I turned over the stamped envelope, check and letter to KUTV News to put on the air for the people in Utah to make them aware of this newer SCAM.
