They text me thur my phone for a job. will I got the paper work thru the mail. they want me to text them all the things I need to do. I will add the papers to this email.
I was sent an email about a mystery shopping job opportunity. I replied and they sent me a letter with a check for $2700. Wanting me to deposit that in my account. And they would text me my assignment as well as do all my communication with them through text. Of course I did not fall for it. I knew it was a scam. I just wanted to report this so no one else falls for it!

Basically I was applying to jobs one night and the night after I received an email with a job similar to the one I was applying for. they then sent me a letter in priority mail with a check inside and instructions on what todo. they told me to deposit the check and text this number 9092933430 and text "check deposited" when it was done the next day they told me to go to Walmart and send money and toevalute their customer service I did that and the following day the was another package with a check inside and a text with more instructions they told me to by I tunes cards. basically the point is they send cashier checks . when you deposit then into your bank you back pushes the check through and it takes about 2 days for check to bounce because the account that the checks are sent from are fake !! DO NOT DO IT PEOPLE !!!!!!!!
Basically the story line is the same as the other reports, was looking for a job, got an email to applied to be a secret shopper, fill out the basic info and a couple days later I supposedly got my first a**igment, to secret shop either Costco, Walmart, Walgreens, Target or Home depot and to fill out a report about the customer service experience. With the instructions I also received a check for the amount of $2995.95, to be deposit in my bank account and to follow instructions and that it was going to be available in 12 to 24 hours, luckily my bank didn't accept it and nothing was lost. I blocked the number as well. Do not fall into this trap.
