Shoppers Inquest Inc., S. I. Inc., Daniel Haskins SCAM Mystery Shopping Headquarters Bismarck North Dakota
Today I received something in the mail. It was a white envelope with my name and address...that's it. The stamp was from CANADA.
I opened it up and it was from SHOPPERS INQUEST INC. (Best source for mystery customer employment).
In the letter it congratulates me for being part of a "pre-selected" group of people who are to represent their company as a mystery shopper. It then tells me my "first assignment" which was to spend $4,998 on these companies and the amount I was to spend on every one of them:
Wal-Mart purchase: $50
Gap Purchase: $40
Western Union Transfer: $1,579
Service Charnge by Western Union: $99
Moneygram Transfer: $2,873
Service Charge by Moneygram: $57
Included in the envelope was a cashier's check from Black Hills Community Bank in the amount of $4,998.
If you have ever received a letter of this sort, DO NOT GO THROUGH WITH THE "ASSIGNMENT"!!! I called the number they provided me 1-647-241-3750 and I asked for a website to show that they are a legitimate company and they gave me www.mysteryshoppingjobs.com which is just a search engine for mystery shopping websites. It is NOT their actual website.
Also, the signature of the person who wrote me this letter "Daniel Haskins" (the supposed Chief Assignment Coordinator) is not an actual signature but a blurry overly copied signature.
I looked up "Daniel Haskins Chief Assignment Coordinator" on Google and I got links for counterfeit check alerts. Here is one: http://www.occ.treas.gov/ftp/alert/2008-40.html
Another fishy part of this letter is their supposed head office address on the bottom of the letter reads: Suite #410 - 1000 W. Century Ave. Bismark, ND. 58503. First of all BISMARCK is mispelled. Second, if this was in North Dakota, how come the stamp on the envelope is from Canada?
Look them UP! Please do not use this check or even put it in your bank account. They have also gone under the name S. F. Inc.
