Mystery shopper scam
My Complaint: Received an email on October 19 2014 inviting me to apply for mystery shopper from [email protected]. I clicked on the link and filled out an application and submitted it.
I did not hear anything from them and figured I was not accepted. Then I received an envelope with a letter and check from Paul Wood. This raised red flags due to(1) receiving a $2000 check to deposit and purchase moneypak cards and send the pin numbers to them…(2) the letter that was sent was blurry and definitely not professional letterhead.
I began checking on the company and the name Paul Wood and others who had the same experience. I have not deposited the check but wanted to make a report on it.
My Demand: Wanted to put in a report so others can be warned. I lost boo money
