Greener Pastures Inc Corporate Research Group, Greener Patures Mystery shopper, customer service Dallas, Texas

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

This company contacted me via mail with no return address.  When I opened the envelope a check for $3,992.00 fell out of a letter saying "based on previous survey by our affiliate Consumer Survey Specialist, you indicated to be interested in an additional income on part-time basis".

Well, the only thing that was suspicious was the check.  The "breakdown" of the funds was $450.00 for training, $100.00 for shopping, $290.00 for Western Union transfer (the company that I was supposed to be mystery shopping), $3,152.00 (amount to be wired to another employee of Greener Pastures).    

According to the customer service coordinator "Angela", Western Union was over pricing customers and I was to wire this amount to see if they would over charging me as well as I was to complete a survey rating their service.

I called customer service for "Angela" to thoroughly explain the procedure again (which made no sense), then I called Southwest Bank in Dallas (this is the bank that the $3,992. [continued below]....
.....00 came from).  The customer service representative at that bank said this scam has been going on for years.

I am not advanced enough in scams to know what their ultimate goal is, but please do not deposit a check from this company.  I am assuming they will obtain your account information and take all of your money.  
Please be aware of this company!
