I recieved an email from an Andrew Smith informing me of the need for a "Mystery Shopper" in my area.  This was a paying job, and I was hired.  I then recieved a job description/instructions to follow, and my first salary/paycheck.*

I was to deposit the "check", and send money via Money Gram, (paying the fees) to a Sam Weaver.

Next was to send money via Western Union, (again paying the fees)  to a Roger Finch.

In the end, I would be left with a loan/debt of almost $3,000, instead of a paycheck.

*Note: This document, instructions, and cashiers check was sent via USPS Priority Mail with a return address of Angelina Sena

Like Stacey, I get these all the time. I used to just delete or mark as "spam".  Lately, I've been responding and letting them send me a check. It costs them a little money, and I figure it's payback :-)  If we can drain their bank accounts by letting them send us bogus checks, all the better! And no, I DON'T deposit the check or respond once I've received them.

The "mystery shopper" - get these emails all the time.  There is not recouping your losses.  Think - who is gonna send you a check in the mail without any contact at all??? You indeed got ripped off.
