Broad Financial Services Secret Shoppers SCAM Hyde Park Massachusetts
I recieved a letter and a check in the mail to become a secret shopper. I called the number on the letter and talked to a Randy Jones, he told me to deposit the check in the bank and as soon as it cleared to call back to recieve a list of companies to do my secret shopping. The check was from a different but real company out of Ohio. Apparently the checks were stolen and it is being investigated.
I called back 3 days later when I saw that the funds were available in my account, and talked to a woman named Denise Jones. She told me that I needed to go to a Money Gram facility and wire $1200.00 to a Winston Carley in Ontario, Canada. Which by the way is where the phone number is also from.
I finished the other jobs within 2 hours and when I went to fax in my paper work the Fax number was no good. I tried calling back the number and it said the mailbox was full. That was on a Saturday so I waited until Monday to call again and heard the same message. On Tuesaday I heard from the bank that the check was no good.
The bank will not give me back the money I spent even though they put the funds in my account before the check cleared.
All I can say is they got me and please beware. I was told next time, to call the bank on the check to see if the funds are really there or go into any branch of that particular bank and they will tell you if the check is good or not. Great advice, a little too late on my part hopefully not for anyone else.
