Chartis Track / Money Order Scam
I was contacted online by a company Chartis Track who I thought was a company looking to recruit secret shopper evaluators. They expressed mailed me 2 Safeway Money Gram orders made out to me (Florence Dove) in the amounts of $980.60 each. I was instructed to go to my bank and cash the money orders, keep $150 for doing the evaluation. The first part of the assignment was to go to the nearest Walmart/JC Penney/ or Sears and spend $20 of the money on anything in the store, the second part of the assignment was to go to Western Union located in Ralphs supermarket on Hwy 111, Indian Wells CA and send the remaining balance to a specific name and address in Canada. I feel like this is scam and that this company is getting people to deposit the money grams, withdrawing the funds out of there bank accounts and then finding out that the money gram orders are no good, which company would send a complete stranger nearly $2, 000, I have not cashed the money orders and don't intend to, I have not contacted the company and told them that I informed you. I have attached scanned copies
of the money orders. and can send e-mail correspondence if necessary
Please advise on my next move if any.
