Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I recieved a letter from Advanis Mystery Shopping Inc today with a bogus cashier's check drawn from Fifth Third Bank in the amount of $995.00 dated July 3,2009. When I called the number listed 647-214-2546 I spoke with a Mr. David Campbell who advised me to go to a moneygram and pretend that I am sending this check to a relative, but in reality it would go to them.

They have so many addresses: PO Box 91081, Seattle Washington 98112-9118..which is supposed to be for ADVANIS Shopper Survey Division/ Then this address: Suite 1600, Sun Life Place 10123-99 St, Edmonton AB T5J 3H1..supposed to be for ADVANIS Shopper Outlet Division.

There web address on the letter is address on the envelope is: PO Box 4000, STN.B, Mississuaga, Ontario L4Y 4L3.

Please stop these scammer before they get anyone else, especially senior citizen.

#1 UPDATE Employee

Advanis - Legitimate Company

AUTHOR: Advanis - (Canada)

I would first like to take this opportunity to apologize to anyone that has received this letter bearing the Advanis company name. Even though the letter and checks are a scam and Advanis is in no way associated with this scam it is still very unfortunate that our name has been used in conjunction with this potentially harmful scheme.

We became aware of these mailings approximately 3 months ago at which time we immediately filed a report with Phone Busters - The Canadian Anti-Fraud Call Centre ( If you would like to reference the file number with phone busters it is: 555737. They can be reached at the following toll free number: 1 (888) 495-8501.

If you would like to get more information on Advanis as a company please see our website Contact information can be found here for our corporate offices and we would be happy to provide any more background on our company should you choose to contact us through our site.

Thank you for posting this information so others can be made aware. We at Advanis are committed to doing what we can to prevent this from happening in the future.
