Complaint Review: Stericycle - Internet
Stericycle Clyde Sigert, Mysteryshops.com, Corporate Research International, Cheryl Horton Fraudulent Checks sent for Mystery Shops Internet
Fradulent Cashiers Check sent to multiple people.
I originally visited mysteryshops.com to inquire about mystery shopping from home and was emailed 2 weeks later that an assignment was available.
In this scheme they sent me a cashier check on paper that had the security features you would expect a check to have, but something just was not right so I contacted the bank it was drawn on and was told it was fraudulent cashiers check.
The email was from Clyde sigert but he used 2 different emails, one a hotmail.com address the other a outlook.com address. The company is supposedly located in Ohio, but upon looking up Stericycle (the parent company), They are located in Indiana but the package with the assignment instructions and fake check came from Nebraska!
DO NOT GET DUPED! This scam is costing people thousands of dollars.
The assignment tells you to
1. Deposit check for 24 hours
2. Withdraw everythign except your $150 commision for the assignment
3. Purchase GreenDot MONEYPACKs (5 of them) in the amount of $460 each
4. Scratch off the MONEYPACK #s, and email them to Clyde
Obviously, had I done this without contacting the bank it was drawn on, I would have given him the numbers and he would have been 2 thousand and some odd dollars richer while my bank would have taken that from my account and left me holding the bag!!
The bank this one was drawn on is Citizens National Bank of Texas. Again if they are located in another state (or several) why is the "corporate cashiers check" coming from a bank in texas??
Please do not get roped into this especially with the holidays coming up. I know we are all looking for extra money but mysteryshops.com is NOT the answer. They are liars and scammers and this has been reported to the FBI Cyber Crimes Department.
