footprints Market Research / fraud
we have received a fake check ( $3997.00) from footprints Market Research today.
the check has Addison Texas for the address and the phone number is Canada [protected], [protected]) and it was mailed out of Canada.
it says to deposit the check into your bank account and shop and spend no more than $100 at Wall Mart(it wasn't spelled right), K-Mart, Home depot, sears, JC Penny and Best Buy. When we're done shopping, we are supposed to fill out the survey and fax it to them right away.
we looked up footprints market research on the net and we think the company with the same name exists but in Australia..
the check has a xeroxed looking signature on it.
the only thing that seems real is the bank that's on the check which is 1st International Bank in Plano TX.
they said to wire-transfer $2000 through Western Union or MoneyGram.
we have never showed any interest in becoming a Mystery Shopper.
Be aware of fake checks. even if you didn't know it was fake, you are the one who will get in trouble at the bank.
