Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
Received an email from my cousin (which was not really her). Asking to become a consumer shopper and get fast cash. All i needed to do was email the above email and give my name-address-phone number. Two weeks later i received a check for 1900.54 stating that $350.00 was my commission. Then i was to wait 24hrs for check to deposit in my acct. and then get cash and go to Walmart to purchase 3 $500 Walmart MoneyCard Visa. Rate the experience of cashier, store, knowledge of the visa cards and wait time to checkout. Then i was to remove the label in front of the cards and capture clear image of front and back of each plastic card and email to [email protected] Note: Do not register the card as stated on the front of the card before peel. follow the assignment instruction as give. Do not discard the cards because they will be used for next assignment.
I did not do this above but deposited the check. I was going to wait 10/15 days until check cleared but after i made the deposit it did not sit right so i did research and feel this is a scam. I called my bank and they said wait 8 more days and the check will most likely be returned! I then decided to let the ScamPulse.com know of this scam. I have the letter and the check if you need. I did a phone deposit so i do have this cashiers check.
