Beware of Mystery Shopping Scams

Beware of e-mails offering mystery shopping employment
or letters offering quick returns for cashing a check

If you received an e-mail offering mystery shopping employment or a letter offering payment to conduct a mystery shop at Western Union or Moneygram, be aware that offers like this are NEVER sent from

Our company never sends unsolicited e-mails nor do we conduct mystery shops involving check cashing or money transfers.

In check cashing or money transfer schemes, you will be asked to cash a cashier's check and wire the money back to a specified address, typically to another country. Your "reward" is that you get to keep a percentage of the original cashier's check as payment. A few days later, the cashier's check bounces and you will be held liable for the entire amount of money you wired to the address - anywhere from $1,000 to $5,000.

If you received an offer like this, report it to your local police and the FTC.
