Got a text from 510-506-6722 (Oakland CA) saying I signed up for a survey task  and they'd be mailing me details to shop around stores near me (eg walmart). Andy that a start up payment package for my first store evaulation has been sent. It goes on and then says "it will only take a few minutes to complete your evaulation so I'll expect you to try to get it done promptly"  signed a John S. HR MGR

Package was in my mailbox the same day as the txt USPS priority  from a James Yates, 105 Malcolm Ave, Moore MT 59464.  Included in packet is a check drafted from Northeast Bank (yes a real bank) with remitter listed as Ellianor Donovan for $2,350.00  Inside is an instruction sheet for Agency Number #1028 - Survey Document section 1 Batch E (with 2019 under a dark shaded box)

Instruction is to txt 251-265-4672 (Mobile AL) and send email to eddychristop@gmail.com once I cash the check and ready.  MMSN is a commerical Audit firm based in the United States of America......  It states the numbers is thier 24/7 text support contact number.

Asks you to purchase 3, $400 walmart cards a first walmart store under the guise of secret shopper survey, and then go to a second walmart store and purchase 2, $400 cards, and to then stratch of the pin codes and send pix of the cards to the txt and the coordinator eddychristop@gmail.

It also states : PAYMENT AND ASSIGNMENT ENUMERATION:  The envelop contains a total payment of $2350 which you are expected to cash at your bank (if your bank does not release to you cash immediately, you are to deposit it so it clears in 24 hours or less once it does you deduct your upfront pay of $350 while you take $1200 to the 1st Walmart store ato purchase Three (3) Walmart gift cards worth $400 each make a total of $1200 you are purchasing. Then once you done you proceed to the 2nd store with the $800 to purchase 2 walmart gift cards in the amount of $400 each. ...........To get proper profiling and bonus, send a text to the contact number 251-265-4672 as soon as you withdraw cash from your bank and ready to complete the rest of the assignment at Walmart also to capture actual assignment on your profile."

I did not fall for the scam given the odd phases and capitalization of the message (and secret shoppper for gift cards to see if these cards are banned by Federal Reserve Global Campaign?? Doesnt exist), and the use of several numbers and names, not company name or email on bank check or email addresses - plus multiple locations/numbers in at least 3 different states.  However, getting an text and the check in the mail seemed like it 'could' be true and I can see how ppl can fall for it.
