Signed up to be secret shopper. Received check via fed ex from Lavern Phillips from Online Shopper, Inc. in the amount of $2390.73 with letter of instructions of what to purchase-American Express gift cards from various stores. I cashed check on 11212020, purchased gift cards, emailed report with pictures of gift cards. (should have been 1st clue of scam). Received notice from my bank on 11/25/2020 that a stop pay was placed on the check and the mount plus a fee was deducted from my savings account.
On 11/24/2020 I received two more checks. I have not done anything with them. Received email with instructions. The checks were Fed Ex from a David Verespy 15 Rock Road Trumbull, CT 06611. The contact from "Online Shoppers" is Lavern Phelps at 313-395-0161. This is the same contact number on website as well. The checks are from an iThink Financial bank.
