I dont recall how i got connected exactly but i beleive I did some surveys online and got an invitation to participate as a Walmart Secret Shopper. I got a text from 949-339-1896 "Walmart survey campaign approved, a survey package with instruction has been mail, Kindly acknowledge this message." I typed ok and then got an message "The survey package is schedule to deliver today or tomorrow, once received, you need to confirm, then read and understand the instruction." 

When i recieved the package, there was a check for $1,950.00 Per the letter, i am to go to Walmart and proceed with the evaluation.

"To perform the first part of the evaluation, purchase any item not more than $50. Please note the cleanliness and professionalsim of cashier, aslo speed of transaction...." They also said i needed to complete the second part of the evaluation by utilizing Walmart2Walmart transfer and Money Gram Transfer serice at the same Wal-Mart store. "You will be making a Walmart2Walmart transfer and Money Gram Money transfer of $1,660 ($830 EACH) to our feedback Dept. Info below, Transfer charges of $20.00 included in the check."

send to

(1) Receiver's Name; Darel Koisah (2) Houston, Texas 77005

(2) Receiver's Name; John Nolateh (2) Houston, Texas 77005

Also they indicated that it was IMPORTANT" to notify them when the package has been delivered by sending an email or text to the below BEFORE depositing/cashing the check.

(949) 339-1896  Email Info@timetutax.com

there was no additional email or phone for "Paul". There are some extreme red flags going on here. In adidtin, the check the note "BAXALTA NOTELOAN  BAXALTAINCENTIVE INVESTMENT PLAN" on top.

Lots of red flags here and looks definitely supsicious.
