Mystery shopper scam - Allied Monitoring & Research Groupgman0815 Rating 0 0 `Blogger`
got a letter with a check for $3800. called a number to confirm that letter was received. they explained that $300 was for my training time, $200 to shop at either Sears, Walmart, JC Penny or K-mart, and that I would need to send $3300 as a test from either a western union or money gram. they tell you to deposit the check and make a withdrawal the next day of $3500, because $300 is yours.
the check is a business check written from a different company and not from Allied Monitoring. when asked about this difference, they said they were the sponsoring company. i found the company on the internet and they said it was a fraud. someone took one of their checks and forge it and sent it nationwide.
in other words, if you withdrew the money, you would be liable to the bank for that $3500, because the check would've bounced.
beware of this scam. they will tell you to send the money order to canada.
