Quite similar to a previous report on Pickens Solutions Inc. 
You are mysteriously chosen to become a mystery shopper. You fill out a "application" and poof, you are chosen, approved, CONGRATULATIONS!
The next day or so, you receive a letter from Shawn Pickens.  Enclosed with the letter is a moneygram money order (m/o) for $900.  The letter instructs you to "write your FULL NAME in the column;" enter the purchasers details "SHAWN PICKENS," her address, etc., in the remaining columns of the m/o.  And finally, the Western Union transfer of the "$680" to BRIANA TAYLOR of Florida. 

I read the letter over and over again.  What sent off a red flag for me was "after filing out the m/o TAKE IT TO YOUR BANK to deposit AND CASH"  NOT! I decided to check the web for scams and low and behold, there he was...SHAWN PICKENS and PICKENS SOLUTIONS INC.

Why can't we stop this jerk?!!!! Finger prints, paper trail, something.

My fear now is how much information did I give this guy?!  What can I do to protect myself?!
Any suggestions?
