I received a letter from Temporary Job Alternatives asking me to go to a department store and spend $50.00 and also go to a Western Union and send 4,530.00 to a certain recipiant who name and location would be given to me when I called in to there company phone number. There was a check included for $4,780.00 which was to be use for the department store $50.00 transaction and the Western Union transaction and $300.00 for me to keep for performing the survey. Also there is a form to fill out with information about my shopping experiance and customer service I received while shopping and at Western Union that I am supposed to fax back when I have completed my shopping experiance. The check issued was from a Harry & David Operations Inc 2500 South Pacific Highway, Medford, OR 97501

a friend fell for it

AUTHOR: Heather - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Friday, August 07, 2009
And when her bank called her telling her the check was counterfeit she was surprised...I told her to at least wait until the check cleared but she wouldn't listen. I guess people are so stressed for work in this economy it clouds their judgement

IT IS SCAM

AUTHOR: Laurie - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Monday, January 12, 2009
No legitimate Mystery Shopping pays as much as the SCAM does and no need to send such large amounts of money - even for checking on Western Union


NEVER CASH CHECKS YOU DID NOT EXPECT TO RECEIVE AND NEVER WIRE MONEY TO PEOPLE YOU DO NOT KNOW


FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION WEBSITE

Prospective mystery shoppers are targeted by illegitimate companies claiming resources for becoming a mystery shopper, selling false certification and charging for services that can otherwise be sought for free.
