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

I received an unsolicted check for $4880 fromLinkShare Corp / from a Marketung Group - Great Insights the middle of April 2008. I was instructed to call Patricia Phillips 9647-436-1400 Ext 3 to get detailed instructions for the use of the check as a Research Personnel Consultant or Customerr Serivce Evaluator.

I made the phone call and left a message. It was not returned until May 2. She apologized for taking so long. She told me she would activate the check on the day I told her I would deposit it and that I should call to tell her how many days they would hold the check. Then she would giver me more detailed instuctions about my probation task.

I was to spend $20 at Burger King and $120 at WalMart.I was to send a Money Gram for $2100 (99.00 fee) and a Western Union Transfer for $2932 (Transfer fee 99.00) and $400 for me.

I was driving when she called me so I reservied my questions for later. I questioned why they would send me a check this large to test me with and without any check of my integrity. I wondered how they could take this chance and whether this was ethical. So I didn't deposot the check.

I talked to several trusted friends who shared my concerns but knew the questionaire was common to secret shoppers reports received by previous employers. One friend suggested that I search the internet before I do anything and I found this sight. Both reports sound like the nightmare I was being set up for. I am thankful for this sight because I cannot afford to lose this kind of money.
