I signed up for the Mystery shopper trying to get some extra money.  It's been a few weeks since i've heard anything from them.  But on 6/21/11 i got a letter from them and three emails with how to handle a check for $1500.  This alone tipped me off, i was expecting $50 or something.  Then in the email i was supposed to wire the money to some other account in china.  That spurred some research which brought me here to ripoff report.  I saw some of the other people.  Thank goodness i didn't act on this.  
this is the email.  
This e-mail is to notify you about your first assignment coming to you today via FedEx Courier.
1. In order for you to receive your fee, take the payment to your bank and have it cashed or deposited in your bank account for 24 hours and the fund would be available the very next business day.
2. Once you have cashed the financial instrument I need you to send the excess fund via Western Union as follows:
a. Deduct 200usd as your commission and deduct $20 also from the money to buy something at any store around you
and make sure you take note of their customer service, neatness of store etc and email the reports.
Note: You are to keep any item bought at the store for yourself
b. Then from the balance left set aside $20.00 to cover the wire transfer fee.
c. Send the remaining funds in cash via Western Union according to the instructions below.
You will be using Western Union services to send the balance to another Mystery Shopper
Send the funds via western union using the information below:
ADDRESS---72 CHINQ ling rd
ZIP CODE--10004
Please try as much to be discrete when doing your work as a mystery shopper. Just observe all you see and report back when you get back home.
Send me the following details via email after sending the money:
1. Senders Name as its written on the western union form
2. Money Transfer Control Number {M.T.C.N}
3. The amount sent after deducting western union charges
