received a priority mail envelope with a photo copy of a piece of paper titled Ebay/Wal-mart Survey Program Instruction Letter with a poorly faked cashier’s check for $1967.23 drawn on the ORNL Federal Credit Union. The check is marked Re: Donald R. Murphy and instructing me to buy gift cards with the funds….i would receive $367 in compensation for purchasing them
Victim Location 76207
Type of a scam Employment
I received a Priority Mail envelope with sketchy directions on being a secret shopper for Walmart cards. It, also, contained a check for $2,450.42 written to me. The instructions had me deposit the check and buy $2000 worth of Walmart gift cards, I was then asked to send them the codes from the cards and report back with how transactions were handled. If I completed the task within 24 hours I was offered an additional $150 bonus. I never contacted this company nor filled out an application to be a shopper. I may be older, but I’m not stupid. Who sends a check in the mail for that amount of money. Total scam I’m sure.
