P.M.F. Marketing & Survey Inc. / Fake check for $1,290.00
I received a check today for $1,290.00 with instruction for me to cash or deposit. I was "hired" as a secret shopper in which I was to go to Wal-mart and spend $80.00 of the money and send them the receipts. (The merchandise was also for me to keep) and fill out a survey form in respect to the customer service I received while shopping. I was to to the same for another $80.00 of the money and then a money gram for $800.00 was to be sent back to them. I cannot reach them to call back. I called Bank of New York (the bank on the check) and was informed they have no more accounts for retail and they were sold to Chase. I called Chase Bank and no routing or account number match. Had I cashed or deposited that check and sent them back the $800.00 out of the check, the check would have bounced and I would have been responsible and also out of $800.00. Be aware... the check looks very real and the offer of a secret shopper sounds very nice.
