I have signed up for a secret shopping position through an affiliate website (unknown). A few months later I receive a letter from the Consumer Research Company and a check for over $3,700. They stated that I have to shop in 3 stores of my choice (from a list they provided) and I have $100 for each store. Then I must write a report of my shopping experience and fax it over to the number provided. After I have done shopping in the 3 stores I must send a money gram to a person they provided in the amount of $3079 plus they covered the money gram fee.

After I have deposited the check I waited a few days for the check to clear which my bank verified it did. I started my assignment and completed it within a week. I have faxed all the reports to fax number they have provided. Now I waited 2 or 3 days after that and went to a near by money gram and sent the required amount of $3,079 to the person they told me.

The following day I check my bank account online and it states that the check I deposited in the amount of $3,700+ is a fraud and did not clear. Shortly after this I called money gram and stopped the transaction. After a few hours this Jason Edward who sent me the check calls me and makes up some story about the company withdrawing from the program but he still needs his money which I stopped through money gram.

He promised to send me a money order in the full amount plus fees that the bank charged me within a week. It has been over 10 days and I can not reach him nor have I received this money order he promised.

This definitely is a scam and I would like all the public and media to know about this and take further action again this low life.
