Global Market Research / Unauthorized charges
Received check in the amount of $ 2, 920.00 in the mail yesterday afternoon. What seemed and looked suspicious to me was the letter that it came with stating that I was offered a position as 'Consumer Survey Specialist' a.k.a Mystery shopper on a part time basis.
My salary would be $80.00 an hr for 4 hrs worked($320.00), $2400 had to be transferred through Money Gram, $100 would be spent to transfer/wire the money through Money Gram, and $100 for me to shop at one of the 7 locations listed on the letter i.e KMart, Home Depot, Gap, JC Penney, Wal-Mart, Sears, or Lowes. The objective of the Money Gram 'assignment' was to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of a payment system.
I would strongly recommend that this be investigated to ensure many families are not buying into this scam and not put themselves in a position to lose what they've worked hard for.
