Shoppers Review / If it's too good to be true, it probably is not true

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

My wife applied for a job with this company. Oct 17, 2008 they sent a cashiers check for $4998 with instructions on how to proceed. I deposited the check and Bank of America released the funds one day later. They did not indicate any kind of problem with the cashiers check. The check then bounced one more day later.

The Bank mailed a hold on this after it had already bounced. They raised no red flags until too late. After following the instructions my wife and I are out $4585 wired to Canada on Moneygram. Rachael and Sandra Delwerth are the names the money went to. The company coordinator used the name Daniel Haskins. These are obviously not their real names. The Los Angeles secret service has informed me that if there are enough victims of this scam the can proceed. Right now our loss in insufficient to trigger an investigation.

Remember: If it's too good to be true, it probably is not true.

    YOU DO NOT APPLY FOR JOBS WITH MYSTERY SHOPPING SCAMS! They send fake checks to a lot of people in hopes of finding people stupid enough to fall for it.

    the first thing you or your wife should have done was check the internet for mystery shopping scams.

    What ever she applied for - she DID NOT APPLY with this one.

    1. You have to be affiliated with a legitimate Mystery Shopping Service and apply for jobs through that service only. If she is not affiliated with a legitimate service - she will never get any mystery shopping jobs.

    2. Legitimate Mystery Shopping jobs do not send checks for several thousand dollars.
