Shoppers Enterprise / Scam and cheating
I received a cashier's check in the mail for $4, 998.00 from Shopper Enterprise Inc. I was excited at first, until I realized some facts...How did they get my name? Why was I chosen? Then the instructions to phone before you attempt to cash the check or it will be put a stop payment on it... Then the instructions how to spend the money with specific amounts for the followings such as: Wal-Mart - $50, JC Penny $40, Travelex Currency Exchange $1643.00, Forex Service Rate $40, Money gram Transfer $2897 and service charge for money gram $58 plus your salary and training pay $270.
So out of curiosity I called the number, first time I got hung up on and then I called back, he said strictly to do the following...make four copies of the Customer Service Evaluation Tool sheet and then cash the check. When you have the cash, call back for more instructions. When I asked questions about the check and if it was a good check, he said, 'didn't you hear what I said?' 'are you serious about working?' why are you asking me again when I just told you what to do?' I said that I just want clarity of what I'm suppose to do. He immediately got upset with me and said 'I'm going to put a stop payment to the check and you can tear up those papers' and hung up the phone. I thought to myself, well, if it was really legit, would he have gotten so upset about me asking questions? He probably knew that I would be a problem because if I asked so many questions that I probably would be cautious of depositing the check.
I'm believing that this is a scam and to be aware. Does anyone know if there any place that this letter and check can be sent for validation? Do I forward to the officials?
