Michael F. Inc. Mystery Shopper Scam Minnetonka Minnesota
This company sent an unsolicited letter offering me a job as a Mystery Shopper. Accompanying the letter was a check for $1, 999.50. Instrcuctions said to activate the check before depositing the check. To activate the check you are to sign into their website (www.michaelfinc.com) with the supplied unsername and password.
When you get to the website you will find only the company name and log-in boxes for job ID and password. There is no other company information. Neither are there any tabs with information. After you log-in, you are taken to a second page which asks for your email and phone number. There are also three items you can select which will bring us quotes from the letter that was mailed to you.
If you call the company using the phone number listed in the letter you get a recorded message stating that they are experiencing a high volume of calls and directing you to the web site. [continued below]....
Based on the phone setup and the website, I believe this is a scam. The only thing that comes up when you search for Michael F. Inc. is a listing for their website. Furthermore, searching databases of mystery shopping companies do not provide any listing for this company. Oh, yes! There is also the fact that the acceptance letter was mailed from Spain.Let anyone who receives a letter like this beware!!
