Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

While I was a member on the website LinkedIn which is supposed to be a professional site for businesses I ran across an offer to make some extra cash a secret surveyor.

I was eventually contacted via text to let me know my first assignment had been mailed.

Upon opening the priority mail envelope it contained my instructions and a cashiers check in the amount of $2,900.42 from Midwest America Federal credit Union.

I called the credit union and talked to Carlee and she assured me it was a scam and had a number of calls on this.

They want you to go to your bank and deposit the check and take out your expense fee of $400 then go purchase eBay gift cards for various amounts and report your experience. Scratch off the silver strip and send it to [email protected] and hold on to cards for future assignment. Some of the words in the instructions are in broken English. I have encountered broken English in other attempts.

I received a priority mail envelop with a letter and a check from MidwestAmerica for $2900. The letter instructed me to deposit the check and keep $400. Then use the rest to purchase $2500 of eBay gift cards, peel off the silver scratch off area and capture the images of the front and back of the cards with my phone and send the images with a report on how the buying experience went. I was also instructed to keep the cards for my next assignment.

The supposed survey company is harrassing me to find out if I had completed the assignment yet. 

Called St. Louis Community C U at the number listed with National Credit Union Administration and confirmed that it is not their actual cashier’s check. The USPS package has return address in IL. However, the package tracking shows the starting point as CA distribution center.

I was contacted via a Linked-In message saying a colleague had referred me to this service to become a Secret Surveyor of products and services. Thinking it was legit I filled out a short application and received a text message from "John Karlsson" saying I was approved and a Priority Mail package would soon arrive with a check and instructions (both attached to this scam report). The check for $2,950.52 was made out to "Ron Weber" (not myself) and was sent from Nashville, TN by "Kayla Wolfe". I was somehow to cash the check and purchase $2,500 worth of EBAY Gift Cards and "keep"$400.00 for my efforts and fill out a evaluation report on the service received at the stores from which I purchased the cards. This has been reported by others as a scam and I concur.
