Shoppers Enterprise / Scam and cheating

1 United States Review updated:

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?

    I too recieved the same exact letter, check and instructions ...my first thought was (ok what kind of scam is this?? ) I never contacted this company to work for them .. I went online and went to the bbb to check them out and didn't find anything. Then I googled them and there were severl sites with the same stories BIG RED FLAG!!! SCAM!!! First of all I was suspisious because there was no return address and the address didn't match the post mark. Tell everyone you know to watch for this .

    I received the same check for different stores. I did call and was treated cordially. I planned to deposit it in an account in which I kept no money and was specifically set up for that. The bank however would not honor it. When I had a chance I looked the bank up on line and they seem to be legit but they have a warning on their website to watch out for the exact Cashiers Check which I received. I plan to fax it to them so maybe someone can track these people down. Grand Rapids, MI

    My wife and i just got a check for the same amount so yeah i know what you are saying on all this. Someone needs to take a look into all this and they need to stop to it all. More people will have problems if people do not speak up. If anything we need more people to comment with us and let the people of this company that we are not going to fall for this bull anymore. I mean its bad enough that prices on everthing is going up more and more each day. Let me know what the rest of the people think about all this.
