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

I received an email from someone who got my resume from Career Builders.  It was for a secret shopper position.  The person asked if I was interested, I applied affirmative.  I was told I would get a package in the mail and to follow the instructions carefully.  What I received was a 1 page letter of instructions and a MoneyGram for $900.  The instructions say to deposit the check keep $200 as my pay and evaluate 2 stores.  1  Walmart, 2 Western Union.  At Walmart I was to spend $20. and keep whatever I buy.  I was to Western  Union the send the money to an address in the Philippines.

#1 UPDATE Employee

Emails were not from Secret Shopper

AUTHOR: - (U.S.A.)

The emails you received were not from Secret Shopper, but rather were from a scammer, using information copied from our website to make their offer seem more legitimate.  We are sorry for the inconvenience you have experienced recently and are very troubled that our company name is being used in disreputable scams such as the one you described.
