I answered an add on craigslist for secret shopper. I have been looking for employmeny and this sounded fun. I received a reply soon after. I was told i needed a chase bank account for payment and to help with funding for my assingments. I opened one. I was told this company was hiried by large companies to secret shop there stores and give back a report on things like if store was clean, how long tell i was helped , who helped me ect. my first assingment was to shop a western union he said they were reported that money sent didnt reach person it was sent to and they had bad service.
i was told to pick up money at chase bank threw quick pay then go to a western union ans send to person i was told. i was to get back the report to them right after.I find out later that the money i picked up was stolden some how because it came from someones personal account.. My account was closed and the bank is telling me i have to pay back this money. I thought i did my homework in making sure that the company was a real I looked them up on the B.B.B. they had an A+ rate. I found a web sight for them online. and i use to work for a grocery store and they would shop our store so i felt it was safe to work for this employer.
I thought if the grocery store has hired secret shoppers that no way would they mess with anything not legal.They sounded very professinal and after the A+ rate with B.B.B how could i go wrong? Now it turns out I may have commited a crime with out even knowing and i am scared what might happen.I dont have money to re pay money taken from who ever it came from and i never intended to ever do so in the first place.I feel horrible for this person and i shouldnt have to be in this position eather. I talked to the bank and told them i wanted to help them find this person that i had all the emails still on my computer and all the paperwork from the jobs he had me do and that i woukld be more than willing to help.
They didnt seam intersted in anything but me paying back the money. The person that had me work for him emailed me after my account had be closed and asked what had happened he did not know i had been informed of what was happening. I told him i had an issue with a check that a girlfrind had givin me and that my account was on hold tell i could cover the check , i didnt want him to know i had been told what had happened so i hopefully could get so help and have him stoped and charged for doing this to people. he is stil in contact with me waiting for me to fix my account. I need help i dont know what i can do,
i want this man stoped it is unfair that one person is missing there hard earned money and it is not right that i could be in trubble with the law and bank for somthing i really had no idea was accuring. I am a single mother of three young children that was looking to find some work not looking to comit any crime. i need help please someone help me like i said i will do everything i can to help catch this guy, but dont know how long i can make him wait before he thinks i know. he has been emailing me trying to get me to do other things i have not responded. lets get this guy off the internet not to take advantage of others. please help .
