Got an email from Mr. Stone, stating he saw my resume on Career Builder.  Wanted me to be a "Secret Shopper". We emailed each other, he sent a contract. Said all I had to do was secret shop Walmart and another money store to purchase pre-paid debit card refills and then send him the security codes from cards.  He would send me two check, Total of $2895. I was to deposit them and then go spend the money, and keep a tidy sum for myself.

The checks came, but not from a business, but from a lady in NJ. Not a business name.  I called the bank, the lady I spoke with knew the account holder and called her.  The account holder was shocked and knew nothing. So, this is what would have happened.  I would have deposited the checks, they would have cleared, then I would have spent the money. By then, the account holder would have noticed the money missing, called the bank, and put in a fraud notice.  A couple weeks later, the money gets pulled from my account, and now I owe my bank $2,895.  The Stoner dude gets off with my money because I put it on a prepaid card that he holds.  Too many clues this moron left, so I won't mention them, because he might actually be able to read and get better at his game.  any email address with an careful From Russia.
