*Consumer Comment: I received one of these too

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

I received a letter, informing me that I had been hired to participate in a paid "Mystery Shoppers Program". In the letter it states that I would be a Consumer Service Evaluator.

I would be paid $300 for my first two assignments. 1. send western union money transfer to Harvey Field, for $950 plus $90 send fees no ID required.  It had to be done by question. Question was color and the answer was gold. 2. Take $58.60 to a retail store like Wal-Mart and purchase goods.

I was to keep all receipts and notify Andrew Van Horne by telephone or email letting him know that the jobs were complete. 

So for these two jobs they sent a check with the letter for the amount of $1,398.60
1. my salary $300.00
2. western union transfer $950 + $90= $940.00
3. Shopping fund $58.60
for a total of the check $1,389.60

I deposited the check and yes it was returned.  I have two teenage daughters and loosing this amount of money was dreadful.  Please people don't fall for this.

I also received a letter stating the same thing the person above reported.  My check was a different amount but basically the same.  Thank you for the above report, I decided to check this out to see if it was a scam, and there it was SCAM.  Saved me a lot of time and hard earned money, that I cannot afford to part with, in these hard times we are all facing.  Again Thank you for taking time to post this.
