    I had received an email asking me if I would be interested in being a mystery shopper on 12/20/13. I sent my name...and received an email thanking me for applying for the detective shopper postion. It said a job had been approved and I would be receiving a package in the mail with my first mystery shopper assignment for the following week. I was instructed that I would be receiving an email with the necessary instructions to complete the assignment.( I never did..via email.) Around 12/26/13 I received a manilla envelope with a "Click-N-Ship" USPS label on the front. "3-day priority mail".

    Inside were instructions with a money order for the amount of $980.00....I was asked to take it to my bank..cash it...keep 150.00 for myself and spend $50.00 at WalMart to buy anything I might need. (write down address of store, cashiers name, and about my experience there). Ok....if this is already sounding familiar.....let me just get to the point....I googled "how do I check to see if a money order is legitemate or not"......up came a site for USPS and it asked for the serial number off the money order, the amount, and the post office # that is on the money order, Sure enough......it was fake. If anyone else has experienced a similar experience...please share. Gotta luv having google at our fingers to help equip ourselves from such things.
    Happy New Year everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hello,

    ---FIRST SURVEY ASSIGNMENT---
    For your first assignment, you would be evaluating Wal-Mart store and Money gram Money Transfer Services in your neighborhood. There have been reports about lapse in the services of their Management and some of their staff.The complaints are based on reports which their customers forwarded anonymously and Phone calls which were also made.

    These reports Include:
    I) Unqualified Staff
    II) Slow services
    III) Loss of Money
    IV) Rude Attendants
    V) Excess charge
    VI) Late opening hours and closing before time

    INSTRUCTIONS BELOW:-
    The envelope contains 1 piece of $2,450 check, you are expected to cash out the check at your bank instantly or otherwise have them deposited for 24 hours for the funds to clear at your bank for record purposes. Once you have the cash, you can go ahead with the Wal-Mart Evaluation followed by Money gram Evaluation. The payment you received covers all expenditures including evaluation, shopping and transport. You are to purchase Goods of your Choice for your own use not more than $50 at any Walmart store close to you while you will be using Money gram services to send the balance to another Mystery shopper (JULIE BROWN), while conducting a survey in the process.

    REPORTS REQUIRED GUIDELINES.
    (1)How long it took you to get services.
    (2)Ambiance/Outlook of the Shop/Outlet
    (3)Smartness of the attendant
    (4)Customer service professionalism
    (5)Reaction of personnel under pressure
    (6)Information that you think would be helpful
    (7)Your comments and impressions.

    BELOW IS THE EXPENDITURES BREAKDOWN:-

    Money Received .......$2,450
    Assignment Salary .......$250
    Walmart......$50
    Money gram Charges & Transport....$200
    Amount to send to Julie Brown via Money gram......................$1,950
    Total............................$2,450

    As a secret shopper your job is to observe anything useful going on in the outlet. Make sure you observe everything you see in there because you would be asked some other questions when you return. You would go ahead and make a Money gram money transfer to another mystery shopper for another assignment. We want you to deduct your payment of $250 and send out a total of $1,950 to the information below for proper preparation of our next Mystery Shopper.

    RECEIVER'S NAME: JULIE BROWN
    CITY: PHILOMATH
    STATE: OREGON
    ZIP CODE: 97370

    REQUIRED INFORMATION AFTER TRANSFER IS COMPLETED VIA MONEY GRAM:-

    1.) Sender's Name and Sender's Address
    2.) Eight Digits Reference number
    3.) The amount transferred
    I will be waiting to read from you ASAP with the requested transfer details. Your pay would increase after every completed assignment. Note that, If your bank does not cash the Check for you instantly, you can have it deposited in your account and wait until the next day for it to clear into your account, then proceed to complete the assignment. However, if your bank can cash the Check for you immediately, you should complete the survey assignment right away.

    Once again, if by the time you receive the package today your bank is closed, you are to wait until tomorrow when your bank is opened to take care of your assignment as it is very important that the Check is cashed through the bank before you proceed to MoneyGram and Walmart to carry out your evaluation.

    Yours Sincerely,
    Joseph Davidson.
