*UPDATE Employee: The SWA Group name has been illegally used by a Canadian scam operation
*Consumer Comment: I received this same letter
The SWA Group says they are (listed with the Better Business Bureau). I went into the BBB and BBB said, the SWA Group was not credited through them.
I was sent a check for $3,940.00 from a Citibank, N.A. Branch #310 in Mill Valley, CA 94941. When I checked out to see if there was a Citibank branch in Mill Valley, CA there was no Citibank in the area.
The assignment for this money was I was suppose to put the $3,940.00 check in my checking account after calling the two coordinators at 1-450-675-4802 to confirm my check. The 450 area code is from Canada.
After the check cleared the bank, I was to withdraw $3,350.00. Take the money to a MoneyGram or Western Union transfer agent office and evaluate the agent at that office.
I was to pose as a potential customer and send the $3,350.00 to one person, that is suppose to be a SWA's training agent, out of five names that I received from SWA. The names are from the State of PA, NY and MA.
I was to use $190.00 to pay the sender's fee at the MoneyGram or Western Union agent office.
The second evaluation assignment was to take place in one of the following stores: Sear's, Wal Mart, Home Depot, Victoria's Secret, JC Penney's, K-Mart, Toysurs, Dillard's or Macy's. None of this stores are in my immediate resident area.
I was to take $100 and choose the merchandize to buy which I was to keep.
I have one week after confirming my check to get the assignments done. For me to do this assignments I would have to drive 40 miles one way.
I never indicated online that I was looking for a part time job and this is the second letter that I have received within a week.
Both of this letters were sent in a plain white envelope without a return address, the first letter came out of Canada, and this letter has a Canada stamp on it without a postmark on it.
I was told by out local City Police Station to give the letter to the Postmaster at my post office so they could see what they could find out. I was told, these kinds of letters are illegal.
