 I was looking for jobs on Indeed.com and applied for a customer service vacancy with a company named http://mysteryshoppercanada.org/ They were looking for mystery shoppers to investigate Walmart and Western Union. In the email an individual named Fred Perry who said he was the head of recruitment for the company and they were looking for mystery shoppers. He stated that I should fill out the following information i.e. address, name and employment status and return it to the email address he had.

The job was to go into Walmart and Western Union  and make purchases with the monthly money they would send. The amount was around 2000. Within 2 days I received a cheque from a company for $1950 in a UPS envelope. I found it weird seeing how I have never met this person and that they sent me money before they even met me to do work. I did not cash the cheque because I found it very weird. I even tried to look up both mysteryshopperscanada.org and Fred Perry and both did not exist.

Here is an exerpt from an email I recieved:

The paycheque is from our finance company and was issued to cover the project bills for your wages and Assignment. It is a Check:-

I believe that this company targets the unemployed who are desperate for work and new Canadians. Be very careful people when looking for jobs. I have posted another post about another company that I found on the same website. Indeed.com I'm sure the website is reputable but be very careful. Stick to workopolis.com, monster.ca and Job bank. The employers there have to go through screening processes and I can't speak for Indeed.com
