Commerce payment systems steve barkley, Offers mystery shopper position, fake check, wire money western union jeffersonville, Vermont

This bogus offer comes in an official letterhead envelope from Canada.  It appears to be offering you employment as a mystery shopper and included is a check,in my case for 2940.90. Of which 2500.00 is to be western unioned back to them within 2 days.  You keep the rest and mystery shop at one of several places and also mystery shop the western union place.

I feel ashamed that I fell prey to these pieces of crap, and what I would give to be alone in a room for 15 minutes with one of them.  But in hard times we tend to let our guard down, at least I did. 

This check is from chase morgan bank and manages to go through the banks machine and 2 days later I get the money out so I figure well it must be a good check?  I then send them the money and on the third day the check is returned and I unfortunately am out 2700.00 and the bank tells me there is nothing they can do, because they no longer have the check.

They do however tell me when I get it back to notify all authorities and Chase Bank.  Well if I have it back why can't I give it to them, sionce afterall their bank cashed the check through their systems. Seems to me they would have far greater luck recovering the money than myself.

Once again the case of another large banking institute not taking any responsability.  I agree it is my fault for falling for this scam in my time of urgency and need but they should have systems in place to check a bad check even it means taking three minutes to call that bank to verify account.

So anyways just wanted to share with you all if you get a letter from Canada promising you a position as a mystery shopper and sending money to someone in England or any Country for that matter, DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT cash this check and report them immediately.

HSBC and commerce Payment Ststems

AUTHOR: Fe-Male Fashions - (United States of America)

POSTED: Thursday, September 01, 2011

I have an active pending lawsuit against Commerce Payment Systems for overcharging my bank account for processing credit cards in excess of $1100 in one year. I went to HSBC bank in Philadelphia to find out the relationship they have with Commerce Payment Systems since they list HSBC bank as their holding company.  I was given only a telephone number to call the Commerce Payment System Office in upstate New York. I already had this number which has given me the runaround for more than a month. I plan to enjoin my suit against both Commerce payment Systems and HSBC since the funds charged my company are deposited in Commerce's account with HSBC.

Dear Unfortunate,

This was unfortunately a horrible things that happened to many people. We had received many calls about this "check and letter" and had reported it to the authorities. We had instructed every caller to shred it right away as it was not our company. We have no affiliation with Chase/JP Morgan bank AT ALL. We are associated with HSBC Bank located in New York. We have no offices or affiliates in Canada or anywhere out of New York for the matter.

We have recordings of many calls of people who called about this unfortunate situation and would be welcome to play it for anyone who has any questions regarding this situation at all.

If anyone reading this posting has any questions regarding this unfortunate situation, please do not hesitate to call me direct at (866) 999-4622 and ask for Mark.

Please feel free to visit our website www.CommercePaymentSystems.com to verify we are associated with HSBC Bank and not Chase/JP Morgan.
